– Board, Donors, Staff and Volunteer Engagement

ActionMap employs an innovative software application for conducting reliable, fast-paced, high-engagement facilitated workshops, both online and in-person.

The workshops combine process mapping with process evaluating to rapidly and reliably produce strong shared understanding among participants.

The workshops produce many “ah hah!” moments, as people see the big picture…

…recognize how their jobs are connected…

…and learn about each other’s interests and concerns.

The workshops extend that strong shared understanding with focused brainstorming to create effective, doable, agreed on action plans.

In addition:

ActionMap creates high-impact work products that can be exported to PowerPoint and Excel for broad distribution and use in other methods.

ActionMap offers subscriptions and training for the software to support broad in-house use.
