Net-Map is an interview-based mapping tool that helps people understand, visualize, discuss, and improve situations in which many different actors influence outcomes. It is an innovative approach to achieving results in complex projects where many different interests influence the result. By creating Influence Network Maps, individuals and groups can clarify their own view of a situation, foster discussion, and develop a strategic approach to their networking activities.
Who can participate?
This is an emerging tool that incorporates qualitative data into Social Network Analysis and is increasingly adopted by practitioners in action research, communication strategy, advocacy, political networks, social movements, program implementation, personal development, project management, organization learning, and change management.
What you learn from the workshop - Participants will learn to draw Net-Maps to structure their own thought processes, in one-on-one consultations and in group sessions. They will understand the typical structural issues in influence networks, which will increase their network mapping facilitation skills. Participants will work on case studies from their own work experience. This has the benefit that, while learning the method, they will also develop a concrete networking plan of action for an issue relevant to their work. Also, this will make implementing Net-Map in future work related cases easier.
