The Pitch Canvas, helping creators become innovators

The Pitch canvas, designed by the Best Three minutes is one of the ways to organise your thoughts. It is designed to help you structure a pitch. A pitch is a way to get funding or support for your idea to turn it into a start up. A start up is a temporary organisation.

We find it useful to help people with ideas, (Creators) move to people developing those ideas (Innovators). It is a step by step series of questions that you ask about the role of the product or service that you want to bring to life.

The most important thing as we go through the 5 ways to grow is that you are able to answer the question: “How are we essential?”

By working with us at Patreon level innovators we hope to be able to walk with you as you make your best life and dreams come true.

Project Management and the Adaptive Frontier

Today we publish our second paper in the series on this for our Patreon creative level subscriber. The adaptive frontier is interpreted in terms of project management. Position Q is also looked at from a scenario point of view

growing to meet complexity
some areas of life make us sit down but this too is taking action

In this we look at Position Q and the impact on a traditional construction company. We explore the opportunities and reasons why they may have failed. This is a metaphor for how to live ones life. It is one of the pillars of 5 ways to grow.

5 Ways to Grow

Our basic thoughts on what we need to do are simple. We outline them also here.

Every one needs to continue to learn to develop their skills and abilities. We fundamentally believe that most work will develop some sort of a Project Management structure.

We know that one cannot live completely on work as a holistic life style. Other parts are needed, but are not always possible. We select one in our plans, which is one that we believe will be good for you, your family, and will be good for the planet. This is regenerative gardening. It is easy enough and can be from a few pots, to a back yard, to a 1 acre plot. The principles of regeneration give us a link to our Planet.

So we have adapted the Covey square to fit our needs and to describe the differences we see in our 3 levels on Patreon.

It is pretty self explanatory:

Creator level is the groups full of ideas but not skilled (yet) in developing them or in the skills of PM to be able to do this.

Innovators can have skills in one of the two main attributes, either in developing ideas or in Project management

The Futurists have both sets of skills and are ready to align these with the future they see for themselves and for the world. This is the zone where you have pulled together and are prepared to really back yourself in self employment of senior roles earning senior money!

Project Management and the Ashby space

Today we published, for our creator level Patreon members, the first in a 4 part series on the space and the fit with project management, involving responding to challenges in projects, project failure, and Agile project management.

If you have lots of ideas and are unsure on how to develop these we hope you find the series useful.
