The NEXT Canvas
The NEXT Canvas is a product-lifecycle framework created to test ideas and track the progress from idea to profitable business model.
The NEXT Canvas visualizes the four types of proof an idea needs to become a profitable business model: First, the team needs to prove there is an actual problem to solve. With a clear problem in mind, there is proof needed that a solution can be created to solve that problem. After there is a proven solution, there needs to be proof that customers will pay and finally, the team needs to prove that the business model can scale.
