Better Faster Process Change

Software and Method for 
Accelerating Collaboration
Results in Hours and Days Instead of Weeks and Months

Reduce the number of meetings

needed for process change

by accelerating the collaboration

required for process change

✔  Strengthen process capabilities for individuals and teams 

✔  Conduct high impact group meetings online and in person

✔  Engage staff, customers, suppliers and the community
to accelerate process development and improvement

Easy and Effective 

Step-by-step guided procedures for capturing:

✔  “no drawing” process maps

✔  specifically focused evaluations

✔  priority-oriented brainstorming ideas

✔  fully “do-able” action plans 

Fast Startup

✔  Start working with the method with one hour of self-training

✔  Start using the method in meetings with five minutes introduction to participants

Fast Results

✔  Direct focus on rapidly creating strong shared understanding, agreement and commitment to take action

✔  Download information captured in the meeting to PowerPoint and Excel right after the meeting

Highly Versatile

✔  Can be used for anything that might be considered a process
✔  No advanced knowledge of the meeting content required for the method operator

Extend Capabilities

✔  Add power to standard meeting methods
✔  Add flexibility to complex process methods

✔  Use the method in multiple meetings and with sub-groups to cover large activity areas

 

You’re in Charge

✔  No extended commitment to the method is required to get results:  use it one meeting at a time

✔  After you learn the method you can use it in other media: flipcharts, whiteboards, and drawing and spreadsheet applications.

The Basic Idea

“Process Change” = any intentional, constructive change  
in process workflow, stakeholders, resources or performance

ActionMap accelerates
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

process maps,

evaluations and action plans

If you can achieve these results in one meeting,

why have two, three or more meetings to do the same?

How Is ActionMap Different?

ActionMap fills a gap

between “easy and not effective”

and “effective but hard to use”

 

 

ActionMap strengthens

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?

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

and development 

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 hours

of increased customer success  

through accelerated process benefits

What are your

current goals for 

better faster 

process change?
