Our team was new to Wardley mapping, and was wrestling with the direction we wanted to take on one part of our new strategy. Philippe created an effective and productive environment for our workshop, and helped us wrestle with our first steps into Wardley mapping. We came out of the session with a far better picture of the options and paths that were available to us than when we went in.
