Partnership Canvas Gamestorm

Recently, I posted the primer on the new Partnership Canvas, an add-on tool to the Business Model Canvas. I’ve gotten a fair bit of response on this canvas, particularly with requests for how to tailor a workshop around it.

Based on these requests, I’ve written out a playscript for a workshop with the Partnership Canvas, and posted it on the excellent Gamestorming Wiki.

I’m grateful and humbled that Dave Gray allowed me to post this tool amongst the collection of the other valuable visual gaming tools. Do browse through more of this Wiki if you want to realise more effective exchange in your brainstorms, and decision creating/making. Also check out the Gamestorming book, which contains more support in setting up visual meeting  workshops.

The partnership canvas as is, is just a first launching feature for a product that will help in the partnership design and implementation process. If you’re interested to learn more about the new developments around the canvas and are eager to test out/suggest new features, then read the introductory blog post to the early user sign-up page, and register. As soon as we have some new experiments to run, we’ll get you involved!

Podcast on the partnership canvas with @petersimoons

Earlier this week I was fortunate to be invited by business alliance expert, consultant, and practitioner, Peter Simoons, for an interview on the Partnership Canvas, as part of his Collaborative Business Podcast series.

Check out Peter’s great blog on alliances and partnerships, and listen to our interview!
