Adapted from http://theteamcanvas.com/use/:
The Team Canvas is a strategic framework that helps bring team members on the same page. It is made to align teams, increase cohesion, performance, and to create a productive team culture.
The Team Canvas works across multiple touchpoints:
- creating a team;
- clarifying goals and addressing overall team performance (e.g. when you feel stuck as a team, or when you need to get a lot of stuff done);
- growing and onboarding new team members;
- general alignment sessions (recommended every 2-3 months).
I’ve written some Team Canvas preparation hints that I share with people ahead of these sessions to let them prepare up-front.
