About the Lean UX Canvas Template

Learn more about what the lean UX canvas template is for and when to use it:

What is Lean UX?

Lean UX is a tool that helps your team dissect and solve your business problems by hypothesis and experimentation. Unlike traditional UX, lean UX focuses more on the experience and less on the quantity of deliverables. Your team must therefore collect feedback as early in the design process as possible. So, lean UX demands closer team collaboration than traditional methods. The lean UX canvas empowers you to work in rapid, iterative cycles without giving up quality. 

When to use lean UX canvas

Lean UX canvas is beneficial during project research, design, and planning—especially the discovery phase. When your team is developing a variety of projects at the same time, traditional UX methods often won’t work. You simply cannot use standard methods to deliver UX in such a short time. Luckily, lean UX helps you deliver a high-quality user experience without sacrificing efficiency. 

Create your own lean UX canvas template

Miro makes it easy to create and share your lean UX canvas. Here’s how to do it:

1. Open the template

To get started, scroll to the top of this page and click on the "use template button". That'll open this lean UX canvas template in Miro.

2. Start with the business problem

Fill out our fully customizable template step by step, going from the Business Problem quadrant to the Experiment Ideas quadrant. 

3. Fill in the user quadrants

Next, fill out the User quadrants by uploading user interviews, surveys, usability studies, and more. This process is truly seamless thanks to Miro integrations with Google Drive, Sketch, Dropbox, Adobe CC, and more. 

4. Fill in the product quadrants

Fill out the Product quadrants to answer assumptions that the Business quadrants posed and confirm the needs that the User quadrants exposed. 

Design efficient, useful solutions and experiences with your team—share your board with others and discuss it in real time.

Benefits of using lean UX canvas

Lean UX canvas gives you the big picture of what you are building, why you are building it, and for whom you are building it. You can quickly identify and fix potentially weak areas of your product and solve your business problems, creating an excellent, much improved and customer-centric product.

8 factors of lean UX canvas

The lean UX canvas is a grid that encompasses eight key elements:

Business problem

What problem is the business having that needs help?

Business outcome

What changes in user behavior will you need to see in order to know that you have solved the problem?

Users and customers

What users and customers should you prioritize?

User benefits

What goals are your users trying to achieve, or what problems are they trying to solve?

Solution ideas

List the product, features, or enhancements that help your target users achieve their desired goal.

Hypothesis

Aggregate points 2 through 5 to form a hypothesis, such as “We believe that X business outcome will be achieved if Y user attains Z benefit with A feature.”

Assumptions

What’s the most important assumption you must make for the hypothesis to be true? How will you know if your hypothesis is incorrect? What would cause the hypothesis to fall apart?

Experimentation

Brainstorm the experiments you would need to run to test your hypothesis or hypotheses.
