In the first part of my how to map your current strategy using a synergy map, I showed you how to position your projects on a synergy map and how to add size, completion and feelings to it.
In this post, I want to show you how to find synergies and conflicts between your goals as well as influential, external forces.
Look at your synergy map. Which projects could have a positive impact on other ones? In my example, introducing puppet could have a positive impact on installing a NAS device as the automation provided by puppet might make that task easier than I thought. Another example would be improving leadership, which could help you avoid filling out those dreaded TPS reports 😉
