This post contains a new kind of strategic mapping, similar to Wardley Mapping, but concerned more with the complexity of human power dynamics. I am tentatively calling it Burja Mapping.
This post marks the beginning of a series of follow-up posts, aiming to develop and share a more robust version of Burja Mapping. This post will address the question, “Why map power?”
Now that we’ve given a more thorough account of why Burja Mapping is useful as a complement to other forms of strategic thinking, let’s dive deeper into the details of combining mapping with Empire Theory.
In this post, I’ll talk about one tool that is surprisingly useful in combination with Burja Maps: the lowly SWOT diagram.
In this post, I’ll show you you how I might apply Empire Theory and Burja Mapping to a more or less “real world situation.”
