The Analyst Canvas
The Analyst Canvas represents an idealized view of an activity, which you might label as research, analytics, or intelligence.
According to Nathan Gilliatt theory is that this abstracted perspective will support any kind of analytical work. The underlying philosopy is to focus on objectives and mission, prompting a consideration of alternatives and reducing the tendency to limit specialist methods to their organizational silos.
The three boxes in a row represent inputs, the analytical process, and outputs. In a software product, they represent data, algorithms and features. In a research project, they are data, analysis and deliverables. In an intelligence environment, they’re sources, methods and deliverables. The upper sections ground the activity in the context of the client’s or user’s work and the mission that work supports. The lower sections clarify what the activity will produce and prompt a consideration of alternative methods.
