Wardley maps and strategic planning

Wardley Maps

Stephen Grey led a meeting of the Melbourne Business Agility Meetup on October 23rd 2018 in a discussion of Wardley Maps, a powerful tool for sense making and bringing structure to strategic planning.

A presentation of the basic principles of the method was made to kick off the discussion. Wardley Maps were discussed in terms of their own principles and in the context of the Cynefin framework. The presentation included links to resources made available by Simon Wardley and a Cognitive Edge practitioner working with him, Marcus Guest, as well as David Snowden in relation to the Cynefin framework.

Two people at the meeting had used Wardley Maps and a handful more were exploring the subject. The discussion demonstrated a significant level of interest in the method.
