A policy canvas is a tool that increases agility and leanness of a policy cycle process, as it specifically draws attention to a handful of relevant factors in policy-making. For example, the government of Rwanda uses it to sketch out a National Broadband Policy, a strategic plan intended to boost the country’s knowledge-based economy by 2050. The core components of this policy canvas consists of beneficiaries, stakeholders, context, process and partners, investment, risks, timing, and overall input. 

As the strategic plan is put through the ideation stage, information under each column is updated according to the results of each test. In this way, policymakers will not lose sight of the bigger picture of policies in making and see the evolution of their concept in real time.
