I presented the #ValueFlywheel today at #MapCamp - it's an illustration of using #WardleyMaps to visualize tech & product drivers and move forward with pace and precision. I live mapped it, which was fun. Here's an early copy of the map. 1/
The top-level is visible by the executive and the mid-level by the technical leadership. Often the two are not aligned - but they have to be. We often go to Cloud but don't really think about how we are going to behave when we get there. 2/
The #ValueFlywheel is a concept that I created with @MarkMcCann and @bigheadoreilly - 1/ Clarity of Purpose 2/ Challenge with mapping 3/ Next Best Action and 4/ Long Term Value - mapping plays a role in all four phases. 3/
Of course, #serverless and #serverlessfirst can really accelerate things through Next Best Action, but you also need a goal - Well-Architected, Sustainable systems. And you don't need to wait to be told, technical leaders need to make this happen. 4/
Once mapping is applied, the following picture shows some of the movement to overcome inertia. This is an illustration for a 15min talk but seemed to go down well. There are some annotations here also. 5/
All of this (and more) will be covered in the book, @ServerlessEdge that @ITRevBooks are publishing next year with the help of @RealGeneKim. We can get into the detail of the #ValueFlywheel and a lot more. There are lots of patterns to help you get started. 6/
And if any of the #mapcamp attendees are wonder what I used, @damonsk wrote the library and there's a @code extension. Same engine used in onlinewardleymaps.com - the repo is here : github.com/damonsk/vscode…. 7/
I would also give @MapsAsCode a wee follow. We will be pushing all of this content and more from @ServerlessEdge at theserverlessedge.com fin/
