Maps are our learning and communication tool for discovering these things and enabling us to make better decisions before acting.. -- Simon Wardley, 2016

I continue to find benefit in mapping how “we” generate visible and hidden value (never a full view, naturally) for people in the context of service, product or organisational design. A mapping session has the tendency to reveal options and consequences better than any other “tool” I’ve used.

“The purpose of producing a map is to help us to learn and then apply basic climatic patterns, doctrine and context specific forms of gameplay.” (Wardley, 2016)
