What you need
Visual mapping tool


  1. Create a network map by writing out the names and roles of everyone in your organisation. This could be done as part of
    Whole Network
  2. List or group individuals according to their affiliations: activities, groups, interests, political activity, etc.
  3. For example, while a network map based on ‘membership’ would show who is in the choir, a network based on affiliations might extend to a broader interest in music.

  4. Note down strong connections and irregular or distant connections.
