Meet our new handbook: The Visual Canvas Guide by Miro

We’ve prepared something special for you! Today we are happy to introduce our new handbook – Visual Canvas Guide. It contains basic information (actually, that’s all you need) about five business canvases, which you can find in Miro library, and links with useful tips. The visual templates we collected are Business Model Canvas template, Lean Canvas, Project Canvas (UX), Project Canvas and App Development Canvas. Feel free to use the guide in your activities and share it with your friends and colleagues.

This Visual Canvas Guide is intended as a toolkit to support your work on projects, startups, businesses and apps. The guide is not just to read – grab some inspiration and try these tools yourself for your own projects. In the following pages, we describe the most common templates that help you outline all your projects/businesses on one page in a simple and visual way. All the methods described in the guide are flexible, simple and timesaving.

The Visual Canvas Guide is a working document, which captures some of the methods we use in Miro for development of our own service, and some we use as templates and tools for other projects. Visual templates presented here are based on methodologies that proved the effectiveness in different projects and organizations all over the world. We thank all the people and companies that have contributed to the templates collected in this guide and inspired us to make this eBook.

This guide is free for you to use and share – and we hope you do.
