Map Camp 22

23/08 EAS General, news

Enterprise Architecture Solutions Ltd (EAS) is proud to sponsor Map Camp 22, a virtual event to be held on 13th October 2022 for enthusiasts of Wardley Mapping, an executive-level workshopping technique that uses maps to understand an organisation’s competitive environment and its strategic challenges.

In the field of business strategy, the simplest questions often prove difficult to answer, and the answers difficult to communicate:

  • Where is our organisation positioned today in terms of its strengths and weaknesses?
  • How do we need to be positioned in future to survive and succeed in our competitive environment?
  • What do we have to change for this to happen?
  • How do we get from where we are today to where we need to be tomorrow?

Wardley Mapping workshops enable business executives to collectively reach agreement on the answers to the first three of these questions.  With the aid of simple visualisation tools to display an organisation’s current and future states in terms of its competitive positioning, it soon becomes clear where the key differences lie.

Achieving executive alignment is a crucial starting point for the strategic change agenda, but translating high level workshop outputs into detailed, practical, thoroughly costed action plans presents challenges on a different scale.  These challenges, encapsulated in the fourth question above, can be effectively addressed with the help of EAS’s Essential toolkit.

Essential has been designed to capture organisational models covering all their aspects – capabilities, processes, people, systems – down to whatever level of detail is required.  Roadmaps can be created showing the necessary workstreams and their interactions, as well as the steps needed to move from the current to the future state.  Costings and risk assessments are also factored in.

In short, Essential, a visionary tool in the Gartner EA Tools Magic Quadrant, provides a powerful complementary service that can help Wardley Mapping exercises deliver on the promise.
