Miro, the collaborative tool to draw Milky Way Enterprise Maps

We have created a Miro Board Template for you to quickly create a Milky Way Map together with colleagues, customers, and partners. It's a Template complete with instructions on how to use it.

Why Miro?

In times when collaboration is the key to success, we went out to search for the perfect tool. And we found it with Miro. Yes, there is GAP:s that need to be filled but overall it does what we need it to do. And from a collaboration point of view, there is just nothing better today.

The Milky Way Enterprise Map

Is a map showing what you do, in which order, what applications you use while doing this. 
What information needs to be communicated between different parts of the enterprise,
as well as how you interact with your customers and partners. 
The steps are easy:
- You Map out the enterprise Value Flow with the Hub and add Business Capabilities
- You use different Information Overlays on the Map to Navigate the enterprise
- You Accelerate Change by using the Map to understand and see business challenges faster

The Milky Way Map with its Overlays is used in a variety of analysis, we show three of many examples below...
