Moving Maps is an international business consultancy based in the UK. Through systemic and experiential learning approaches clients develop their self-coaching capacity. We work with teams, individuals and provide international virtual learning communities.
Working with systemic mapping generates deeper insights for business planning, problem solving and decision making. The wider system in which challenges or opportunities are situated becomes visible and clarity on the current situation is achieved. This allows to identify steps to achieve change subsequently. Through movement in the map elements, use of timelines and business models with simple post it maps, floor markers or common software tools such as powerpoint, mental maps are being changed and solution maps emerge. Participants of our programmes go away with an image and felt sense of the change they work towards, and having learned a process they can use for self-coaching.

Comments from open workshop participants:
‘A different and unique approach to exploring work challenges especially around trying to achieve change. The key benefit is the ability to step away from, or perhaps sit above the situation to give new insight.’
‘It is a wonderful tool I have now in my tool box, and I can apply it immediately.’
‘I couldn’t really imagine that it would be any different to marking things out on paper like we usually do, but to actually seeing our world in a 3D perspective somehow made a much deeper impression, it is a very useful tool. The constellation map enabled us to visualise our position in relation to the forces around us. It made me realise that our biggest strength is also our greatest vulnerability. I don’t think I had ever looked at our position like that before’.

‘I have a clear picture in my mind of the current situation and the situation I am working towards to which I can continually refer to. This strengthens my resolve and focuses my energy. Thank you very much for an excellent workshop that far exceeded my expectation. I am already feeling the benefits of using this approach and intend to continue using it and encourage others to try it.’

‘The physical aspect does achieve new ways of thinking surprisingly. Having a limited amount of objects and having to group aspects enabled to lift up the requirements and conflicting needs of a large number of people into a few groups. Found that helpful to get some clarity as I had to be generic about the dynamics that were going on.’
‘I work a lot with my clients on opening up new perspectives to a ‘topic’, but had never used anything so practical as this before. It is the wider system that is sometimes hard for the client to visualise and understand its impact on the topic.’
‘For the first exercise I formulated a question for myself which I thought was quite complicated and therefore did not expect to resolve it. However, working through it using the table top map simplified the issue for me. It was like putting glasses on that I didn’t know I needed; I suddenly saw the issue with clarity. If I changed my mindset on one element then I could move ahead.’

‘The relationship between objects emphasized where distance was needed and where priorities should lie.’
‘Forces attention to certain issues that people may not readily bring to light otherwise.’
‘This is a refreshing method for tackling difficult challenges and broadens out one’s perspectives. I would recommend it as a novel way of solving a variety of intractable problems’.
‘It gave me a new perspective on conflicting pressures and priorities. Putting it in 3D made it feel very different and immediate’.
