The Design Thinking Canvas is a template and a structured approach to plan a design-led strategy and process. It provides an overview of the different elements in a design process and is a systemic technique to collect inputs from a project. This is helpful for the internal communication within a project team as well as externally towards stakeholders. The tool contains 8 elements: People, Storytelling, Challenges, Vision, Impact, Management, Problem, and Solution. The latter two refers to the Double Diamond design process, which is based on the design-driven approach of using the diverging and converging thinking. The canvas is a process design tool to be used during a complete project. The template is downloadable as a PDF, Mural canvas, and Adobe XD whiteboard.
