It still puzzles me that certain IT audiences presented with a bit exaggerated fact that they are wasting as much as 90% of their professional life and effort seem relatively unimpressed., like they already knew it!
I have just started wondering - maybe it is a conspiracy? Maybe Wardley Mapping is a well known technique that was identified as a dangerous weapon and deeply buried on purpose?
Inefficiencies in software craft are very common, which just multiplies the effect of the IT personnel shortage. IT crew does not need to take extra care about efficiency, because they are nearly irreplaceable in that sense that replacing one IT person with another rarely makes any difference. Doing a really mediocre job is sufficient to guarantee you a lavish pay check, especially compared to other professions.
It looks like it is in the best interest of all software developers to prevent maps from spreading. Improving their efficiency 10 times would drastically change the situation on the job market.
On the other hand, the group that really takes care about awareness and about mapping is the group that wants to start their own business. Presenting three types of innovation followed by rough estimation of success chances makes every single in the room alert and interested.
That actually a good symptom, because mapping certainly has future, and that future lies in hands of people who start their new businesses and are not victims of their past success.
Anyway, it turned out that going to conferences is pretty expensive in terms of time and money and far from efficiency, I am going to focus now solely on the tool development (btw. I have gathered a significant feedback from you, for which I am very, VERY grateful).
Expect some serious tool refreshment soon!
