Examples for Wardley Maps

During the workshop participants learn to read and understand Wardley Maps. The central components of Maps are explained and the way to the first map is walked together. After the basics have been internalized, advanced concepts are considered and discussed. In practical exercises related to software development, maps are built up and refined in several iterations with the help of the Strategy-Cycle Maps. Through the conveyed understanding of the evolution of components from the Uncharted to the Industrialised Domain, the participants will understand which skills are needed at which locations. It will be discussed how teams should be structured and used to find the right characters for the corresponding tasks. At the end, advanced techniques are covered:

  • What do pioneers, settlers and urban planners have to do with their own projects?
  • Peace, War & Wonder: Where are we right now?
  • How can complex maps be structured and divided?
