Lean canvas

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.

Tips for completing your lean canvas

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.
