Environment Scan Canvas


Analyze and understand what is happening around you - to identify opportunities and risks

The environment scan helps you to analyze and understand what is happening around you - to identify opportunities and risks.

By mapping results from research and studies the canvas will support deeper discussion with your innovation peers to build a common understanding.


  1. Define the current business you want to disrupt – could be your own or the the business of someone else -> put it into the middle
  2. Collect and analyze different sources for trends, market developments, competitors, analyst opinions, etc. related to your platform
  3. Discuss the collected information and highlight the most important -> condense them into clear statements
  4. Map the statements on the canvas into the four areas to build a common picture

How to use this canvas?

Canvas Generation is an open library for canvas creators, enthusiasts and developers. We are not a productivity tool where you can use this tool. It is our mission to make the canvas library accessible to anybody for integration in their apps. Don't reinvent the wheel. Just use our free and open Canvas API. Our way of giving back :).
