Why draw maps?

I’ve been awakening to the power of visuals to help teams with decision-making.

Too often, we don’t have a common mental model and end up talking past each other. This is where I’ve found myself inside my own organization more often than I’d like to admit recently.

+ Why think about power?
+ Why mapping and visualization tools might help?
+ How might it help you with group decision-making?
