The Learning Initiative Canvas is a tool used to visually design a customized Learning Program.
Every transformation and training need is different. Many times, designing a custom course with our Course Design Canvas is enough to achieve a goal. However, in a transformation or training initiative that involves tens, hundreds, or thousands of people, it is necessary to have broad vision of the learning program that goes beyond just a set of courses. It is also critical to align the program with an organization’s overall business objectives to achieve the maximum possible impact. To truly be agile, it’s necessary to ensure that we are adding value to the business, working collaboratively, and obtaining feedback as soon as possible so we can adapt appropriately.
For large initiatives that need more than one or several courses, we utilize our Learning Initiative Canvas to help facilitate the learning program design process. The Learning Initiative Canvas is inspired by similarly formatted tools such as Business Model Canvas, Lean Canvas, or Project Canvas, and allows us to design a training program oriented to specific profiles within a transformation. It differs from Course Design Canvas in that it is much more business-oriented and takes into consideration the business results to be achieved and how the impact of those results will be measured.
To do this, the Learning Initiative Canvas summarizes the most important aspects in a single page. This facilitates the coherence between them, while allowing us to go into detail in each of its sections.
