A lot goes into creating a strategy – market data, competitor information, current performance evaluation, vision, mission, values and on and on.
The creator of Wardley Maps, Simon Wardley, argues we need a map, not a SWOT. Maps help us with situational awareness so we can see movement in the future and maps are important in deciding on actions.
Our speaker for the evening, Kim Ballestrin of elabor8, will run us through the concept of Wardley Mapping, how to use it for decision making and some examples of how others have used this type of mapping. The bulk of the evening will be workshop style as we will all create a Wardley map.
Hope to see you there. RSVP now!
Talk starts at 6:30pm
