Use the Digital Government Partnership (DGP) Innovation Fund lean canvas to communicate your initiative in an easily presentable format.
Purpose of a lean canvas
The A3 lean canvas is a tool that helps you to get an idea out of your head and onto 1 page.
Unlike a business plan that can take a long time to write, the lean canvas is designed to communicate your application for rapid evaluation.
What your lean canvas should cover
It needs to cover important aspects like:
- who your tier 1 or 2 sponsors are from each agency
- the crucial problem you’re trying to solve
- what are you planning to do, and how you’re planning to do it
- what success looks like
- what the deliverables, timing, and financials are.
What we’re looking for
We’re looking for applications from government agencies wanting to invest in and lead early stage cross-agency pilots and prototypes that leverage data and digital channels to create better services for New Zealanders.
