Community meetup: IT Canvas workshop
TQ Community Meetups aim to strengthen our community by bringing together like-minded people to share experiences and grow together. This time around, we've invited Bas Monster (Director of Operations for ING's “Suburbia” start-up) and Ad van Dongen (Experiment Lead for ING's venture "Sparq") to get you familiar with the IT - Canvas framework and how to overcome the gap between business and IT. In this time of digitalization the challenges for companies with a Tech/IT component are big. Projects and products take longer to develop, they're not often within budget, and lack much needed features.
Based on the “Desirability, Viability, Feasibility” concept of Ideo, they realized there was no tooling available for the ‘Feasibility’ component and created the IT-Canvas that supports team to tackle it. Over the past decades, they have seen this challenge in many projects, no matter whether these projects were real start-ups, corporate projects, or spin-outs.
During this workshop, they'll discuss this phenomena and together will identify some of the root causes. In many cases, they learned that the IT-canvas improves the communication between IT and business.
