A SuccessMap is the Wovex name for a benefit map. We call it a SuccessMap for a number of reasons:

  • One Name.
    • We have found that there are so many different names for benefit maps, and Wovex supports them all. We needed to standardize on a single different name.
  • It's About Your Success.
    • That users and people new to benefit realisation don’t understand the value of a benefits map. Especially when names can be quite technical. We chose a name that helped us communicate the value i.e. it's about your success. 
  • A Map to Get To Your Destination: Success Achieved. 
    • The name SuccessMap shows that it is about mapping what you need to do and what is defined as success.  So, for any program then you might want to communicate with people that this is what success is for the program and this is what we need to deliver on that success.  This is really powerful in helping people understand that you need a SuccessMap, because without a map how would you know and how can you get there with confidence?
  • One Model Can Have Many SuccessMaps.
    • A SuccessMap is one view on a Model.  You can have multiple views on a Model.
    • A Model is the collection of information/data and all the relationships.  A SuccessMap is looking at some of that in a visual way.  You can have many SuccessMaps for a Model and for example, 
      • a SuccessMap might have everything in from the Model and this would be really complex.  
      • Or you can have a SuccessMap which just shows the things of interest to a certain stakeholder, for example, these are the things which are of interest to your success and what you need or depend on to get that delivered.  
    • So a Model can have one or more SuccessMaps created for them.  They are used for communication, conversations and discussing to improve them and plan for them.
