Build an intuitive understanding of your business context.

Created by Simon Wardley, a Wardley Map represents the landscape in which a business operates. It's made up of a value chain –the activities needed to fulfill user needs – graphed against the evolution of individual activities over time. You can use a Wardley Map to understand shared assumptions about your environment and discover what strategic options are available.
