What we’ve gained clarity on:
As leaders, the same questions tend to haunt us, and they don’t seem to be getting easier to answer:
- How are we performing?
- Where are we focused?
- What are we missing?
We seem to always be faced with more complexity, friction, and waste over time, and there’s no simple answer to address these challenges. What’s even more challenging is that we need to share the same understanding of these issues with executives and individual contributors alike.
We’re grappling with some of the leading challenges holding organizations back from better performance:
- Project-focus, micro-optimization, and silos
- Copy-and-paste fix attempts
- Agile frameworks and mandates adding little or no value
What we’re interested in pursuing:
- Organizations depend on shared clarity, delivering targeted value to customers, and enabling continuous flow
- Organizational performance emerges from individual psychology
- We need to optimize for: Information flow, understanding, alignment, focus, decision-making, experimentation, execution, scale, and sustainability
Our goal is to deliver practical, applicable insights on two fronts:
- The cycle of clarity, value, and flow as a mental framework for improved performance
- The act of mapping as a practical framework to catalyze and enable improved performance
By improved performance, we mean:
- Maximizing learning while minimizing effort
- Maximizing value creation while minimizing effort
- Enabling the continuous delivery of value
We hope this excites you as much as it does us, and if you’re on the fence, hear us out for a moment 😉
