Uncovering the patterns by Hugo Froes — Issue #9

Yes and no…

Where to start? Finding the patterns

How do I pattern match?

Building relationships

Sketch it… or spreadsheet it out… whatever works for you

  • Miro — I personally love using Miro to start connecting the dots as I can visually create a map of the people and how they are connected.
  • Key players — Whenever I start a new initiative, I usually create a 1 pager to start laying down and organising my thoughts. I always like to add a section with the key people connected to that piece of work. That way, the list is directly in the context of the work.
  • Extended community — As soon as you start identifying people who are great to discuss change initiatives with, I suggest creating a sort of community of practice. Add those people to a slack channel and quickly, you have a resource for support. Make sure to add people with a growth/change mindset, but that will challenge your thinking and in some cases argue against you.
  • Stakeholder mapping — I personally don’t always use it, but I know of people who swear by it and I’ve personally seen how mapping out stakeholders can sometimes be really beneficial.
