  5. Questions I want to be able to answer How do

    I talk about my users and the people I’m building for? How do I talk about what my team is doing, or my organisation does? How do I talk about what's changing around me, or might change in future?
  6. How do I talk about my users and people I’m

    building for? Stakeholder maps Personas Journey Maps User needs / stories
  7. How do I talk about what my team, or my

    organisation does? Business model canvas (or some variant on it) Product / Service Roadmap
  8. How do I talk about what's changing around me, or

    might change in future? Business model canvas (or some variant on it) ? Product / Service Roadmap?
  9. Brief recap of my questions How do I talk about

    my users and people I’m building for? How do I talk about what my team, or my organisation does? How do I talk about what's changing around me, or might change in future?
  10. Useful features of a map: Anchor - keep the user

    in the picture Helps with “How do I talk about my users and people I’m building for?” Position - show how we’re set up meet their needs Helps with “How do I talk about what my team, or my organisation does?”
 Movement - see how things might change Helps with: “How do I talk about what's changing around me, or might change in future?”
  11. Maps complement existing tools Anchor - keep the user in

    the picture. User needs / Journey Maps & Personas give you a head start Position - show how we’re set up meet their needs. BM Canvas can help here if you already have one Movement - see how things might change Honestly, I haven’t found much… hence Wardley mapping
  12. Why I think they’re interesting Informationally dense Can scale up

    and down Force you to be explicit Invite challenge

  14. What Product Science does: UX and Product Strategy Custom development

    Hosting Usually with open data, open source or environmental focus
  15. Mapping out the usual value chain

  22. Commoditising arrow of doom. FLEE

  23. Questions this brought up Are we going to get better

    at ops faster than Amazon, Heroku, Pivotal et al? Do we want to be stuck with clients who only stay with us because only we know their tech stack? Will new clients increasingly expect us to be familiar with stuff on the right of the map? Can we do value stuff elsewhere with our clients?

  40. How the battle of cloud was lost

  41. Simon Wardley’s “For example, it would have been relatively trivial

    for the hardware manufacturers to create Amazon clones and a price war in the IaaS space around 2008–2010 in order to fragment the market by increasing demand beyond the capability of Amazon to supply due to the constraint of building data centres. I had these exact conversations with Dell, IBM and HP throughout 2008 and 2009.”

  55. How smartphones change our map “Smartphone apps can access your

    address book, bypassing the need to rebuild your social graph on a new service. They can access your photo library, where uploading photos to different websites is a pain. They can use push notifications instead of relying on emails and on people bothering to check multiple websites Crucially, they all get an icon on the home screen.” Ben Evans, 16az http://ben-evans.com/benedictevans/2014/2/19/whatsapp-and-19bn

  60. If you can’t beat them… 2011 - Facebook acquires Beluga,

    a 3 person startup 2012 - Facebook acquires Instagram for $1bn
 (1% of FB’s market cap at the time. Instagram now has 800m users) 2014 - Facebook acquire WhatsApp for $19bn
 (10% market of FB’s market cap) (and you have wheelbarrows full of cash, and lax regulators)

  62. The LEF course isn’t half bad You have to make

    maps at each stage You end up covering something a bit like journey maps, and personas There are some nice examples in there
