His session during the event

Live session: strategic rehearsal with Wardley Maps

Most teams don’t know how well their strategy will work until they bring it to the real world. With strategic rehearsal we can start to consider the shape of the future and how resilient our strategy may be in it (Slides).

We will start with a short discussion on how Chris has used Wardley Maps, random (and sometimes not so random) events, and reflection at Google to make strategic rehearsal a beneficial workshop for all organizations. 

Then we will have a hands-on workshop to run through a strategic rehearsal (with Wardley Maps) in a Miro board.
