Product managers work within a complex landscape of organisational systems and processes, all intertwined and dependent on one another. As the product manager, your job is to help your team navigate these systems to uncover friction and opportunities, and drive action.

Mapping is an invaluable learning and communication tool you can use to break down any system, flow or process into digestible elements. This process will empower you to work through problems visually with your team, pulling apart complexity to uncover the next most valuable action.

During the course of this workshop, you will build your own map using a product problem or challenge from your own career. We have designed this workshop so that you take the learnings from each of the below modules and apply it right away using your own map, enabling you to fully grasp the concept of mapping. The opportunity to collaborate with your trainer and peers as you build your map is an invaluable way to get feedback and learn from your classmates.

But what is a map?
A map is a visualisation of the way pieces of information relate to one another. We are surrounded by simple maps every day: calendars, backlogs, meeting agendas. As product managers, we can use maps to help our teams pull apart complex problems and uncover the most valuable next steps to drive action. Maps can be applied in all areas of product management, to any problem.

What will you learn?

  • Introduction to Systems Thinking – An overview of mapping, its origins in systems thinking, and how it can be used in your organisation
  • Problem Definition – Setting a goal for your map (what problem are you trying to work through, or what opportunity are you trying to uncover)
  • Key Elements of a Map – Understanding the different components of maps, how they can fit together, and where to start
  • Building your Map – Working through your own challenges by building your own map, with class discussions about how your peers are applying this thinking to their own work
  • Mapping Process – Different approaches to maps, how to map when you have gaps in your knowledge, and processes for different mapping scenarios
  • Mapping Outcomes – Effectively facilitating your map towards actions and leveraging your map for maximum impact
  • Mapping Culture  What a mapping and systems thinking culture looks like, how you can ensure internal support of the mapping process, and an overview of map facilitation techniques
