The New Canvas Methodology

Solving your biggest challenges with a scientific approach and a human-centered outlook.

The challenges your organization faces are unique. The solutions should be as well. Our methodology combines a commitment to exploration and appreciative inquiry with the rigor of the Scientific Method to develop a solution that perfectly fits your needs.

The Basics

Our approach is built on two of the foundations of modern society; the Socratic and Scientific Methods. 

Socrates explored major philosophical topics using a question-and-answer approach. Similarly, we use questions to uncover known and unknown needs, challenges, and opportunities with our clients. Having worked with organizations of all sizes on projects across numerous industries from logistics to healthcare, we have the experience and expertise to ask paradigm-shifting questions that will cause you to think in an entirely new way about a problem.

While the Socratic Method focuses on exploration and persuasion, the Scientific Method provides a proven framework for tackling complex problems. Hannah brings discipline to the process of conducting the necessary background research, analyzing available data, forming an hypothesis, experimenting and analyzing outcomes, and making final conclusions.

These two skills allow us to examine the core of any complex challenge or issue and develop a path forward that is achievable and sustainable. 

The Background

Hannah Thomas developed the New Canvas Methodology over the course of her more than 25 years of work in organizational design and development. Because of its flexibility, she’s deployed the methodology in industries as varied as healthcare, waste management, and logistics. 

At its core, the New Canvas Methodology seeks to understand the key challenges an organization faces and solve them with a scientific rigor that drives the right outcomes.
