Why Wardley Maps?
Wardley maps are an effective way of exploring user needs, value chains, the evolution of practice & technology, and strategies. They are ideal for developing a strategy as they allow us to consider multiple perspectives at different levels of granularity (eg: macro → meso → micro → nano), capital flows, impediments, and strategic plays. They will also serve as a key link between different departments within an organisation by creating active dialogue, developing a common language, and highlighting practical actions that can be taken.
