Welcome to The Canopy Lab

The world is not getting any simpler. Luckily, our tools to deal with complexity are getting better all the time. From industrial competitiveness to organizational development, from boosting agricultural markets in developing economies to retraining workers left behind by Industry 4.0, today’s challenges require smart solutions built on fast learning, rigorous iteration and insightful evaluations and a strong understanding of social system dynamics. The Canopy Lab is a growing consultancy focused on the practical application of systems thinking to all kinds of problems.

Questions we love to help answer

  • Where should we invest in change now and what can we reasonably expect to happen next?
  • How do we figure out what to do if we can’t make sense of what’s going on?
  • How do I get my suppliers (or distributors) to be more responsive to my needs?
  • How do we build a learning culture in our organization?
  • Our network members have such different interests, how do we leverage our shared desire for change and move forward?
  • My team manages a portfolio of change initiatives, what are useful strategies for tracking progress and deciding where to allocate resources?
  • Are the changes we helped bring about going to last?
