As previously mentioned, my work on the Mapping portal was always a side project, with my primary role being in the Finance sector. With time being squeezed on both professional and personal fronts, and with little time to spend on WardleyMaps.com, it was time to reset my priorities.
Today, I am pleased to announce that situation normal, everything must change.
I have now left my job in Finance and am delighted to join Leading Edge Forum (the home of Wardley Maps with Mr Simon Wardley himself!) as a Mapping Consultant.
I am extremely excited to now be able to spend my time developing an industrialized mapping training service with an emphasis on ‘removing self-harm’ and using mapping to get the basics right. We believe this training will drastically reduce the time required to get started with mapping, and build a course that will bring real value to visitors from Day 1.
I will also build out the Atlas mapping tool to include aggregation data, cheat sheets and the addition of strategic markers. The tool will also form part of our workshops, both online and in our in-demand, formal onsite workshops. The tool will support all use cases used in the course and will remain open source as it is today.
Last but not least, as you may have noticed, wardleymaps.com is no longer a community page but an official property of Leading Edge Forum.
Please check back regularly for updates and subscribe to our newsletter to keep up to date.
I look forward to bringing these updates to you in order that we can bring Wardley Maps to the masses!
