This course is great for anyone who wants to know the benefits a Milky Way map can give in change initiatives, but hasn't yet created your own Milky Way map. This course uses a fictive company's Milky Way map as foundation.

  • How to use a Milky Way Map as a foundation for creating analyses
  • How to conduct these analyses in workshop situations
  • How to view change over time - from idea, to finding gaps, prioritize and create backlogs in the value flow (six-field time analysis)
