The stepping stones vision canvas combines the ‘north star’ you defined in terms of your statement and themes with the steps you can take to get there.
First, look at the Golden Circle canvas and find the themes you have come up with from the how, what, and why sections. What are the major themes if you cluster them? Copy the themes to the stepping stones canvas.
Next, try to come up with evidence for each theme. How will it show up in the everyday life at the company? How does the theme define what, how, and why you do things? Together, the themes and this evidence should logically support your vision statement.
Find out where you are now, what is your starting point. How can you define the situation you're in? Where have you not yet achieved your vision statement?
come up with a number of steps you may take to lead you closer to the vision. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a clear order in mind. The stepping stones allow you to take a free-form path. It’s about alternatives, not a definite map.
While defining stepping stones, you can also look out for supports (things that can help you get closer to the vision) and blockers (things that make it harder). In coming up with more steps, try to use your supports and neutralize the blockers.
Look at your stepping stones map regularly and try to see what options you have for your next stepping stone.
