About Lean Canvas:

Lean Canvas is an adaptation of the Business Model Canvas by Ash Maurya, the WSJ best-selling author. The entrepreneur focused Lean Canvas methodology aims to quickly formulate possible and actionable variations of business models, product launches and campaigns by focusing on problems, solutions, key metrics and competitive advantages.

The key fundamental to Lean methodology is the elimination of waste-time, processes, inventory etc by using a 9-blocks concept in one page format, each block serving as logical step from understanding customer problem and insights to determining the right product/market fit and revenue model.
