ActionMap Accelerates Project Benefits

by accelerating project decision making


ActionMap Rapidly and Reliably
Creates and Applies Strong Shared Understanding
of Tasks, Values and Ideas

What is the VALUE of strong shared understanding of tasks, values and ideas?

What is the COST of NOT HAVING strong shared understanding of ideas when it is needed?

How much TIME is required to create strong shared understanding using conventional meetings?

What is the value in terms of earlier project benefits from achieving strong shared understanding in hours instead of weeks and months?


ActionMap delivers value through a “Process Workshop In-A-Box” software application that helps clients rapidly:

  • Capture and share group members’ knowledge, values and ideas;
  • Focus that shared knowledge on immediately doable improvement actions; and
  • Create direct progress toward organizational performance goals.

Immediate Benefits

In addition to creating a basis for long term performance improvement, this shared understanding can be used to produce immediate benefits in:

  • solving stubborn problems,
  • identifying quick-win opportunities for improvement, and
  • creating strong consensus for action.

ActionMap’s goal is to produce these results in hours instead of weeks and months.  

This accelerated decision making reduces meetings, which can save thousands of dollars in meeting time, and accelerates project benefits, which can add tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars to project ROI.

The ActionMap method has been proven in over 100 workshops with organizations including these:

ActionMap software supports online or in-person workshops with full step-by-step guidance.

In addition to collaboration results, these workshops produce high quality, analytic work products that can be carried forward into more formal methods including project management, systems development and quality assurance.

ActionMap fills a gap between methods are are effective but difficult to apply and methods that easy to apply but not effective.

The ActionMap method has been applied to a wide range of organizational, process and technology situations.

        How ActionMap can create value with partner consultants

        We are developing an informal network of consultants, coaches anda advisers who can:
        – use the Toolkit themselves, to conduct workshops for their clients, and to achieve the goals at the top of this page,
        – provide training in the Toolkit to their clients,
        – refer clients to other network members, based on industry specialization and subject matter expertise, and
        – collaborate on ideas for increasing process capabilities among their clients

        ActionMap adds value to this network in the following ways:

        Provide, maintain and add to the software and the support and training materials
        Offer software subscriptions (current pricing at this link)
             – with discounts for early adopters.
        Provide training to consultants in the network
            – currently at no charge, to jumpstart the network
            – the initial free, online self-training to start using software takes about an hour
        Conduct initial client workshops with network members to accelerate training and use with the method
        Provide and support an online community around the software and its uses
        Create and deploy marketing materials to grow the network and attract small business clients to the network’s services.
