GO FURTHER WITH THE RAINFOREST CANVAS
If you invite the right people to collaborate on your canvas, the results can be powerful. Ideally the participants to your collaborative exercise should have a good understanding of one or several block(s) of the canvas. Don’t hesitate to contact other stakeholders and to do some research to answer some of the questions if you are missing some elements.
Focus intensely on the bottlenecks in the social fabric of your Rainforest. Above all, you want to overcome social barriers caused by geography, networks, culture, language, and distrust as these will prevent valuable relationships to form and flourish.
Other important questions are:
Who is not collaborating with whom?
By looking outside of your Rainforest, who is is far but critical for your Rainforest’s health?
How can we modify the incentive structure to reward desired behaviours?
