A DEDICATED SPACE WHERE A PRESSING SITUATION IS MAPPED BASED ON ALL AVAILABLE KNOWLEDGE IN ORDER TO PLAN EFFECTIVELY FOR ACTION.
OUR MAPPING ROOM
2 - 3 hour sessions where boards of directors, management teams, project groups or whole departments work with a map of the way their organisation creates, delivers and captures value. Pressing issues are exposed. Ideas, concepts and strategies are tested and validated. Fast.
Teams entering the mapping room have their beliefs around their pressing situation challenged.
The mapping room reveals stakeholders' drivers and motives, both internal and external.
THE BOTTOM LINE
On a burning platform, seek clarity or want to disrupt? It's quick and effective. It saves time and money.
GO HIGH GO DEEP
Work with a map and you alternate between a helicopter and a close-up view.
TEST AND VALIDATE
Confront reality and you test and validate business models, value chains, pipelines, organisational set-ups, customer experiences & stakeholder situations.
ON THE SAME PAGE
One map means one mental model, stopping anyone from reverting back to individual inner models.
Reflecting back over gathered insights in order to plan intelligently for future action
A session where we help you process the findings from the mapping room so that you can implement action and enable change within your organisation.
APPLIED IN OVER TWENTY COUNTRIES FOR BUSINESS MODELLING, TEAM ONBOARDING, STAKEHOLDER MANAGEMENT, PROJECT FORMULATION, CUSTOMER JOURNEYS
1. What language will it be in?
The mapping room session is held in English. The method has been applied in twenty different countries. Its visual approach enables participants with varying levels of English to collaborate. The debrief can be held in English or Danish.
2. How many people can participate?
Around the table, from one to twenty. Larger groups of up to 200 have experienced the mapping room as audience.
3. Is it a one-off or does it require multiple sessions? And when should we do it?
It can be a one-off or used quarterly and suited to your timeline. When and where is something we can determine together, once you’ve made contact.
4. Does the mapping room generate ideas?
Yes. When you break a scenario or a problem down, ideas from within the team, naturally emerge. Seeing your company’s situation from new perspectives rivals any brainstorming technique.
5. I’ve heard of LEGO Serious Play™. Is that what you do?
Lego Serious Play™ uses a facilitator who takes individuals and small teams through a series of predefined steps to play around and express their situations through small scenes built in LEGO. The mapping room gathers everyone around one table to address one situation. Here the focus is not on whether it’s LEGO, Playmobil or office supplies, but on having the whole group test and validate different courses of action in relation to their work.
6. Is this a team building exercise?
It does bring teams together and team building is a significant bi-product but not the main focus. Having a team deconstruct their situation and explore multiple perspectives guarantees a shared, deeper and consistent understanding across that team.
7. Why chose Taylor + Tyler over other management consulting companies?
It doesn’t have to be us or them. Just two hours with us, will confront you and any external consultants with exactly where you are right now and will test and validate any ideas you all bring to the table. See our mapping room as a fast service with no binding commitment.
8. Do you provide any documentation of the mapping room?
Yes, we will provide digital photos and a video summary of your session. A 1-page summary or presentation slides of what ideas were tested and validated, written in Danish or English, can also be purchased.
9. What happens after a mapping room session?
After the mapping room analysis is the debrief, where we help you process the insights so that you can implement action and enable change within your organisation.
10. How much does it cost?
That depends on a number of things such as group size, where you are based. So contact us, so we can hear more about you, and we’ll send you an offer.
