Net-Map Certification Training, Washington DC, August 16th-17th 2013

Participants will learn to draw Net-Maps to structure their own thought processes, in one-on-one consultations and in group sessions. They will understand the typical structural issues in influence network, which will increase their network mapping facilitation skills.
Participants will work on their case studies from their own work experience. This has the benefit that, while learning the method, they will also develop a concrete networking plan of action for an issue relevant to their work. Also, this will make implementing Net-Map in future work related cases easier.
