From our experience it became clear that there was a need for some simpler approaches to business thinking in order to make our working lives less complex. All of our work revolves around the desire to help our clients understand difficult topics and be able to do it for themselves. To make this happen, we have developed a range of tools and ways of working and made them available in simple packages.
Business Planning
A series of physical maps, each representing a different aspect of the business. The maps are used to design, define and decide on a business strategy and plans. By following the simple instructions, players work as a team or on their own to refine their initial ideas, run scenarios and assess the challenges.

All maps come with the graphic map, a detailed user guide, cards to record your ideas, a set of the Think and Chance cards and a guide to getting started. They are delivered digitally to the email address you enter when you pay. You will need to print the maps before you use them.

The maps are for personal or team use only. If you want to use them as part of your service portfolio, please contact us.
