Group Mapping

Group mapping can be seen as similar to brainstorming and seeks to surface contributions from all those attending. However, group mapping used for strategy making has a number of important differences from brainstorming.

Group mapping encompasses the surfacing of assumptions, concerns, facts, assertions and constraints along with their relationships. The process of detecting how issues impact upon one another is found by most managers to be an activity that they can relate. Group mapping thus aims to release deep knowledge and wisdom to get beyond the apparently similar descriptions of situations and into the subtle, but important, differences of what has to be done and why.
