Solution Map™

Are you looking to crack a dilemma, clarify a strategy process, speed up decision making or innovate?

Solution Map is a process tool that brings teams and groups together for idea creation, problem solving, and knowledge sharing. Solution Map offers a simple and intuitive way to guide organisational decisions and discussions in true workshop style.

It ensures, very literal, hands on involvement of the relevant stakeholders and makes documentation very visible and very easy while testing ideas and mapping your possible solutions. 

DEVELOPMENT THROUGH OBSTRUCTIONS

The more we challenge ideas, the more solid they get. Solution Map supports the creation of bulletproof ideas by setting up obstructions to challenge participants in their ability to find and realise new perspectives, ideas and solutions.

A good idea can always be made better and Solution Map focuses on overcoming obstructions in the hunt for even better ideas. Thus, Solution Map works both qualitatively and quantitatively by making clear your range of solutions as well as their usefulness.  

FROM PROBLEM TO SOLUTION

Solution Map is a game-based tool consisting of cards that are used to visualise and structure knowledge and insights around a center board. On the basis of a chosen subject, participants put problems, questions, answers, and solutions into play.

Participants work in groups of three, and the tool incorporates changes of perspectives in order to highlight different issues from all angles. The result is a well-documented process in which collectively sourced ideas are paired with a sequence of arguments that are visible to everybody. In this way, Solution Map makes it easy to evaluate and continue on to the next phase of work based on your results.
