We are excited to share two new techniques created by Sundaram Applied Technologies:

The Technology Product Canvas

The Technology Product Canvas is a process that we developed over recent years, using the Canvas concept to apply to the challenging downstream process of achieving alignment between the Technologies being used and the Product being developed.  Our proprietary process increases team communication and productivity. 

The Technology Product Canvas should be used after you have done your product strategy, mapping and have generated a draft product release roadmap. 

 

At this stage you will be able to better define the product features that are critical for each major release.  This now allows you to have a conversation with your technology team to figure out what technology architecture will be needed to support the product development.

 

You can download the PDF or editable PPT to use in your next meeting. Feel free to use, or even modify.  If you do, like I have done, just please attribute a shout out to me on twitter @premsundaram !

 

 

The Software Product Canvas

The Software Product Canvas should be used at the start of a new application idea.

 

It can be used after you have done a product strategy or product concept canvas. The canvas includes the story mapping method to help you explicitly state the user work flow. 

 

After you complete this you will be able to define and communicate the product features that are critical for your software. You will be better prepared to have a conversation with your design team to develop a mock-up prototype app.

The Software Product Canvas uses the Canvas concept to address the challenge of succinctly capturing all the essential elements and ideas for a new sofware application.  This proprietary process increases team clarity of a product idea, and focuses a team as to the core features of an app first version (MVP).

The Software Product Canvas and Technology Product canvas that I created was built off a Product Opportunity canvas from Jeff Patton. Thanks Jeff! Do read his great guidance on Story Mapping. Other inspiration came from Roman Pichler (guru on Product Vision) and Alexander Osterwalder (Business Model ) and Ash Maurya (Lean Canvas).
