The 2-Canvas System

Having run Design Sprints with many clients, we at Voltage Control iterated to identify the best way to run remote Design Sprints. Moving in between individual Murals for each corresponding activity became an ongoing distraction for both Facilitators and Participants. We have a new approach that we are excited to share with you. Watch the video before heading over the Mural template to try it yourself.

Getting Started

There are three 'rooms' associated with the approach. Each is essentially a large scale Mural that you can work from. Leveraging these templates gives you dedicated spaces to pull pre-made activities from, facilitate with participants, and organize post-activity artifacts. Each serves a distinct purpose, allowing you to accelerate facilitation and synthesis. If you are looking for some pro-tips on how to facilitate the individual modules, take a look at the content below.

Our Tips

Definition

Start with a general problem statement that contains some constraints. Avoid Buzzwords.

Requirement

This exercise takes about 60 minutes. Multi-disciplinary teams deliver on this best because their views tend to be more divergent.

Recommendation

Start with a general problem statement that contains some constraints. Avoid Buzzwords. Pick the wildest-sounding prompts to get the best results.

Caution

Don’t be discouraged if your idea isn’t chosen. You want to get a group of people thinking differently and aligning around a new approach or definition.
