Situation: a super complex software strategy, a multitude of stakeholders, and a history of going around and around to try to arrive at a cogent strategy and plan. The client was stuck, plain and simple. And time was running out.
Solution: 2 days in a room with the stakeholders, pizza, pens, paper--and a Visual Ink designer. The result: a software strategy map that sorts the confusion into a series of strategy options. From this map, the team could see the dynamics, weigh their options, and quickly arrived at the right strategic direction.
