Shaping the future
Maps are arguably the best tool to understand the past and to shape the future. The past is a foreign country (L.P. Hartley), that’s why we need to understand it; the future is an amorphic territory, that’s why we need to shape it. Trivioquadrivio’s MAPPS is in action today in Milan, to help a large group of managers to build a shared road map to design organisational change.
The past is the starting point: where do we come from as a business unit and how did we get here as a group of colleagues? Points of view are different and differences are valuable, when we need to share decisions.
Then comes the future: how do we perceive it? What are the most relevant threats/opportunities? And the main obstacles/triggers that stop/facilitate our aims? Once again, value percolates from diversity.
