You Will Make Maps
May 26 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
Stop Reading. Start Mapping.
Make maps, find opportunities, and get critique.
Who it’s for
You’ve heard the talks, tried to read the book, and even attempted a map, but the whole process isn’t making sense yet. How do you know if you’re doing it right? And how are you supposed to get from a map to strategic insight?
This workshop is for leaders at all levels who are ready to use Wardley Mapping to create clarity and purposeful action, for themselves and for their teams. Whether you’re dealing with a specific challenge or just adding Wardley Mapping to your decision-making toolkit, this experience will accelerate you through Simon Wardley’s strategic thinking process and quickly get you to value.
