The Learning Canvas


What is it?

The Learning Canvas is for Learning and Development (L&D), HR, and People teams who want to drive impact with their L&D initiatives every single day!

The canvas is a single-page strategy and planning document that helps to plan out and optimize the most important aspects of your L&D strategy:

  • Business Problems to solve

  • Key Metrics

  • Outcomes

  • Internal Customers

  • Stakeholders

  • Costs

  • Value Proposition

  • & more...

It allows you to find your minimum viable learning before iterating clearly and to add value beyond launch.

Who's it for?

This template is great for L&D, People, and HR teams of all sizes - whether you're a solo L&D team or a multinational team across the globe.

The Learning Canvas can be applied to big-ticket strategy items (like overhauling your company onboarding, compliance programs or leadership development) or more agile problem solving (sales enablement, product launches, and performance support)

How does it work?

Step-by-step instructions are included in the canvas, along with some examples for you to shape your L&D strategy!

Where did it come from?

The Learning Canvas is adapted from my book, Learning At Speed.

It also forms the foundation of dozens of HowNow's customers' Learning and Development Strategies.
