This board is a concept map created during the sample project’s initiation phase.
Creating a map like this can help clarify the purpose of a project, linking it to key strategic initiatives. It can be used to help understand the company’s goals and strategies, and how these things may be supported by the proposed solution.
Having a map like this later on can also be useful in controlling scope creep. Does the added scope support the high level project objectives? Have the objectives changed? Having a visual tool like this can help facilitate conversations with executives and other stakeholders throughout the life of a project.
