Earlier in October, I wrote a bit about a format for an event specifically set up to allow people interested in mapping, to try using mapping to understand their environment better, and and generally get practice and build confidence in the technique. Also, at Mapcamp itself, I got the chance to speak to a number […]Read More Running the first AWMUG event – Mapping Opera
In an earlier post, I wrote a public outline of what an AWMUG event might look like, to provide a safe space to practice mapping, from the perspective of an attendee. However, it’s much hard to make an effective Wardley map without having a decent grasp of whose needs you’re mapping, but at the same time, it’s […]Read More Why you might donate a scenario for an AWMUG event

There was quite a lot of interest in running an AWMUG style event in London soon, so I’m going to share my thoughts now of what it might look like.

There’s now a course available from the Leading Edge Forum, that you might want to know about. I’ve been following Wardley Mapping, and Simon Wardley’s recorded talks about the cloud […]Read More A online course for learning Wardley Mapping
