About maps

  • Space has a meaning
  • You have an anchor (e.g. like where is north)
  • (e.g. a systems overview is not a map but a diagram)
  • „Maps“ in business are mainly not a map but a diagram
  • Anchor: can be the customer
  • Start with the customer and create a chain of needs for that customer down to the low level system components

Main Steps

  • The purpose - the moral comparative
  • Understand the landscape you’re competing in 
  • Climate patterns - so how the landscape is changing
  • Understand doctrine and principles of organization. Doctrine: universally applicable principles regardless of context .. around 40 
  • Manage the evolutionary flow before you manage the process flow
