Systems Map (Canvas)

The System Map is a visual representation of the system behind the innovation, whether it be a service or a product. It helps take on a systemic view of the solution and see connections between the different actors that might otherwise not have been perceived. It also maps out the flow of materials, energy, information and money throughout the system. This helps understand where possible opportunities might lie to increase value, efficiency and/or efficacy.
