The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a new perspective to international dialogues, and organisations have been forced to adapt to online methodologies. Through technical facilitation and dialogue mapping, I help them build solid processes.


What is dialogue mapping?

Many dialogue processe struggle processing, analysing and integrating the variety of ideas and perspectives of their different participants. Striking the balance between conciseness and depth isn't easy. That's where dialogue mapping can help.

Dialogue mapping is a method for facilitation that involves the creation of dynamic maps using a computer. It can help make dialogues, consultations and meetings easier to translate into action. They are also a powerful tool to report on complex processes. 

A dialogue map is the canvas that results from listening to conversation, reframing statements,  summarising the main points and discovering connections through qualitative analysis. They can help you unlock points of contention and enable participants to see the impact of their words and how they relate to what others have said.
