Canvas & Templates

“Innovation is easy if you ask the right questions. Asking the right question is the hard part.”

That’s why we’ve drawn from our research and insights to develop a series of question canvases for teamwork sessions. Each canvas includes a series of critical questions under 8 pillars including expertise, belief, perspectives, behaviours, culture, action, relationships and infrastructure. Each pillar includes approximately 6 customised and topic relevant questions, providing 48 questions to help identify strategies for improving team and/or organisational performance.

Designed for both face-to-face and online collaboration, the canvases quickly and easily allow participants to assess and prioritise actions. Through a process of elimination - deleting questions which aren’t important (at this time), and then classifying the remaining important questions into those that are already well managed, and those that need attention.
