Is there a Wardley Mapping Template available for Mind Manager? I have searched for one without success. The attached file is what the template would look like. Thank you!

I don't think there is, but you may be able to construct something like this using a combination of a free form or concept map template with a swim lane Smart Shape in the background. Also have a look to see if there's anything on the Biggerplate website: https://www.biggerplate.com/

Hi, I created a Wardley Mapping template for you 😀 Took me 10 minutes

Feel free to download it

I showed an example of a Wardley map in recent Biggerplate webinar on using MindManager for strategy. The recording is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wP_ULI9rVX4 and Wardley Maps start at around 31:10. I would recommend using a Wardley map to the left of the central topic, and a mind map to the right so that you have plenty of space for elaborating detail.

Hello Nick,

the Wardley map would be a perfect example for your Flip Workbook 😀

What you think?

Thanks Andreas, this is a good idea. In fact any of the strategy maps would benefit from an explanation on the reverse side. This highlights the contrast between presenting decisions and actions on the front of the map, and developing the thinking process on the back.

Nick, I like the idea of the combined Wardley Map along with a Mind Map.

I've created a template of the Wardley Map, however it is not saving as a template - everything still moves around.

I followed the directions for savings as a template without success. Am I missing something simple?

I'm saving it in the template folder and selecting the Mind Manager Template (*.mmat) , (*.xmmat) for the Save as type.

Any insight?

You have done the right thing. A "template" map is just a map, with some content in it already. Even the "blank" template is still a map that can be edited. Saving a map as a template does not make anything read-only.

If you want to freeze the background shapes and images used to create the framework, right-click in the canvas and click Background > Lock all background objects. This means they stay in place and cannot be selected or moved, making it easier to manipulate topics over them. To release the lock for further editing, right-click in the canvas and click Background > Unlock all background objects.

Nick,

Thank you! The lock all background objects did the trick - perfect!!

Now, slightly armed and extremely dangerous :-)
