Tom Nixon:

"The purpose of initiative mapping is to get collaboration flowing much more smoothly and naturally. This allows the creative vision for a company or any other human endeavour to be realised faster, with less unnecessary tension.

If you work in a company or other organisation and you want things to be more autonomous, aligned, accountable and agile then initiative mapping will help." (


Tom Nixon:

"Since we’re not focussing on ‘the organisation’, initiative mapping uses a different lens: The underlying process of realising a vision in the world. This is a particular powerful lens since ultimately that’s the point of whatever work is happening. It gets directly to the heart of things.

Initiative mapping is an enquiry into:

  • how the overall vision breaks down into the ever smaller ideas which contribute to it;
  • who has taken responsibility for each part;
  • and who is helping with what."
