The ACT method – extended workshop canvas

The ACT method (analyse, create, transform) ensures that the 24 most important strategic topics for the digital age are covered in your strategy. The three phases will be completed as separate workshops and in 10 strategy steps. Use this canvas to discuss the 24 strategic topics/questions with your project team so that you can use ACT to identify challenges, opportunities and project ideas for your strategy roadmap.
