The human-centered canvas is a tool that facilitates a human-centered problem-solving process that can be utilized to solve wicked problems regardless of their context.
In the past years, a significant portion of my focus has been on how to create a human-centered organization. With the term “human-centered organization” I refer to a group of persons that deliberately implemented a human-centered problem-solving practice at the core of their processes and operations.
One of the challenges of organically scaling a human-centered practice across an organization is to support the adoption of its mindset which includes the absorption of a new set of skills and the development of a new attitude.
The main idea behind the Human-Centered Canvas is to provide a structure that can be used by designers and non-designers to facilitate this adoption, and that can reduce the complexity and the mental effort required by this demanding change.
I used the Human-Centered Canvas to align multidisciplinary teams during the design and development phase, but also to promote the adoption of a human-centered problem-solving practice into other disciplines like human-resource, marketing, and finance.
