Organizational Mapping [2 hours]

By following this workflow, organizations can gain a comprehensive understanding of their workforce and improve efficiency among team members.

Brainstorm Work

Start by gathering a group of individuals involved in the organization. Together, brainstorm and list all the different types of work being performed, whether it's teamwork or individual tasks.

Categorize Work

Once the work items are identified, categorize them into context-based teams or groups. These categories should be based on common themes or shared contexts for efficient collaboration.

Identify Leads and Goals

Within each context-based category, assign specific responsibilities to individuals. Start with assigning a lead to each category and together define the mission and goals of each category. These can be seen as context-based teams.

Visualise time-based projects

Each context-based team should have more defined time-based initiatives and projects. Discuss and note down all time-based projects together with the lead.

Define Responsibilities and Job Titles

For each of the time-based projects, ask the team to add their name to visualise their involvement.

For each assigned responsibility, allow individuals to choose or create appropriate job titles that reflect their roles and areas of expertise within the organization.

Review and Revise

After completing the mapping exercise, review the results periodically. Conduct reviews to ensure that the categorization and assignments remain accurate and aligned with the organization's goals.

Update and Adapt

As the organization evolves, adapt the mapping accordingly. Integrate new work items or adjust responsibilities to accommodate changes in the organization's structure and objectives.


Maintain clear and accessible documentation of the organizational mapping. This documentation should include the categories, assignments, job titles, and any updates made during the review process.
