The canvas combines agile methodologies with UX principles to help validate product solutions.

An effective work plan guides you throughout the project lifecycle, allowing you to realize an outcome by collaborating with your team.

Project Management, Project Planning

A project plan is a single source of truth that helps teams visualize and reach project milestones. Project plans are most useful when you outline the project’s “what” and “why” to anyone who needs to give you project buy-in. Use a project plan to proactively discuss team needs; expectations; and baselines for timeline, budget, and scope. The plan will also help you clarify available resources before you kick off a project, as well as expected deliverables at the end of the project.
