The Basic Idea
“Process Change” = any intentional, constructive change
in process workflow, stakeholders, resources or performance
process change by
accelerating the collaboration
required for process change
A major benefit of accelerating collaboration is to
reduce the number of meetings
required to achieve collaboration results.
This by itself produces:
ActionMap accelerates collaboration by
rapidly and systematically creating
the sought-after results of collaboration:
strong shared understanding,
agreement and commitment
to take action
supported by high quality
evaluations and action plans
If you can achieve these results in one meeting,
why have two, three or more meeting to do the same?
How Is ActionMap Different?
ActionMap fills a gap
between “easy and not effective”
and “effective but hard to use”.
general collaboration tools
and adds flexibility
to more complex methods
Where would you place
your current process change methods
in this pyramid?
ActionMap achieves these qualities
by relying on people’s existing abilities
and “just in time” instructions
How are you accomplishing these results now?
The ActionMap® Toolkit™
application is an online
meeting tool that uses
a single page layout.
It has easy-to-follow formats
and familiar controls
The List is like a structured discussion, reducing the need for facilitation skills
The Maps are automatically generated from the List, reducing the need for graphic skills
An “automated facilitator” drives the method steps,
reducing the need for methods training
Sessions can be started with only a few minutes of introduction,
no training for the participants, and no prior knowledge of the content
by the session operator
How flexible are the process change methods
used by your organization?
ActionMap methods are organized around one basic fact:
Process change depends on
changing people’s knowledge
of the process
through exchanging and
of how the process works,
the values it produces and
stakeholder interests in those values
If the process knowledge
does not change, then
process change will not happen
When the process knowledge
can quickly follow
Because of that, ActionMap focuses on delivering
specific procedures and formats that support the
exchange and development of process knowledge
Who in your organization today is focused on enhancing
the exchange and development of process knowledge?
Better Faster Process Change
contributes to better faster results in a wide range of activities including:
Where would you like to see better faster process change?
ActionMap is also a powerful addition to
individual process thinking capabilities
Capabilities that can be used to
Prepare for key meetings
Learn people’s interests
Coach staff members
Develop new skills
Where in your organization can
stronger process thinking capabilities
make a difference?
How can you extend your current capabilites to help your customers, partners and colleagues?
What would it be like if
EVERYONE in your organization
had stronger process thinking capabilities?
The ActionMap method has been proven in
hundreds of engagements
in its original flipchart/whiteboard format
ActionMap can be applied
in a wide range of applications
that are all critically dependent on
process knowledge exchange
The bottom line is:
Each ActionMap session can save you
one or more follow-on meetings.
Each reduced meeting can
save you hundreds of dollars
in staff time and potentially
gain you thousands of dollars
in accelerated process benefit
What are your
current goals for
Results in Hours and Days
Instead of Weeks and Months
