(Eco)system Map

Visualize the entire system in which you're planning to operate throughout your project identifying stakeholders and connections


The system map is a visual representation of the entire system in which a developed product or service will operate. It provides a systemic view on all connections and relations among the different actors and maps the flows of material, information and money. It allows us to identify new opportunities or potentially problematic points.
