Details about the event:
Why maps? Conceptual maps allow for visual strategic analysis: for executives, managers, PMs, consultants – and anyone seeking situational awareness for better decision making. Join us to hear Scott Henderson introduce the concept of Wardley Mapping, created by Simon Wardley. A community is growing around the use and understanding of this tool. Scott hopes by sharing his understanding with us, more can add their voices and insights to the conversation.

Simon Wardley is a researcher with Leading Edge Forum and creator of Wardley mapping. He developed the tool to address his concern about his strategic initiatives. Since 2005, he’s used it in government, police, pharmaceuticals, high speed rail, immigration… but the benefits are best introduced in his own words:

Speaker Bio:
Scott Henderson is a senior agile coach and has previously served as CIO, Director of Operations, Director of Client Services, and Senior Program Manager.

An advocate for community engagement, he’s founded a co-working space based on the agile manifesto, hosted StartUp Weekends here and abroad, Laid Off Camp for older workers and Coder’s dojo for kids. He’s spoken to groups on Open Source, Education, Entrepreneurship, and Enterprise Lean product flow.

While grateful for all he learned at Ohio State University, the University of Philippines, and Musicians Institute, it’s his perspective as orphan, exchange student and up-close observer of revolutions which has led to a varied and nuanced understanding of the power dynamics of the world.

He’s enthusiastic about complex ideas but when asked, he’d say he’s pretty simple himself and aspires to be a good dad and husband.

Mark your calendars now and we hope to see you there! Below are some pictures from last month’s event, “Reframing Scrum for Hardware”.
