Transformation Map

A Transformation Map can be used for all scales of initiatives and activity to map out the outputs to outcomes, the outcomes to the objectives and objectives to the overarching vision. 

A Transformation Map can be used to show alignment of activity to achieve a vision. It can be used for delivery of a team's service or for an initiative.

For more information on the terminology (i.e. outcome, objective etc.), please refer to the Glossary.
