​Are Business Plans Dead?  Do You Really Need One?

Clarity is your Prime Directive.

What supersedes discussion on relevance of business plans is the need for quality strategic thinking.  Whether it is during a retreat, management meeting, Board meeting or in the hallway – strategic thinking develops clarity for your company:

  • ​​​​​How your customer is changing.
  • Where your profit zone is moving.
  • Your be​st-fit profit model.
  • How to be successful.

Clarity leads to action planning – whether you call it a business plan, roadmap, blueprint, or whatever.

​​Strategic thinking, action planning, and “who-what-when” are clearly determined, communicated, and executed in any successful company.

The Execution Canvas is a pragmatic 2-page business blueprint that you can complete and deploy rapidly to scale your business more profitably.  Its implementation is simple.  It will help you the Owner/CEO, your leadership team, and your company overall be aligned, relevant, and timely.

  • Reduce risk.
  • Generate solutions and approaches.
  • Capture the mindsets of your customers.
  • Paint a picture of your opportunities.
  • Anchor your strategy and execution.
  • ​Generate practical results.

​Designed with 3 Overarching Ideas:


Define what is important and what is a distraction.  Clarity drives everything in your business.

​​Some FAQ's

Why are there two versions of the Canvas?

We have developed two versions of The Execution Canvas. The difference is in page two that details quarterly objectives. The Original version has a two-quarter layout on page two, with Scorecard and Pivot Numbers at the top. The Plus version has a four-quarter layout on page two with Scorecard and Pivot numbers structured in each quarter column.

All concepts and instructions for page one and for page two are the same! The different layout is (and was) based on preference by my clients. Choose whichever version works better for you and your team.

What is the format of The Execution Canvas?

Both versions of the canvas are "fillable" PDF forms.  You download the Canvas and Handbook from the Growth Cubed website.  All you need to work with the Canvas is the standard free Adobe PDF reader.
