About this event
DeepDive Topic: Naryan Wong hosts an offers & needs market
SumApp Mapping Community Offers and Needs Market
Join us for a unique network building experience! One common and fundamental role that social system maps may play is by allowing members to connect resources with needs. Indeed, our own Social System Mapping Community of Practice map has an ‘Offers and Asks’ view. Whether it is matching knowledge with curiosity, shared desires to collaborate, or work opportunities with skills – exchange is a powerful way to build connection and create value in a community.
The Offers and Needs Market is a guided process where community members come together to identify and exchange their passions, knowledge, skills, resources and needs – creating the very kinds of connections we often seek to facilitate with our maps.
In this DeepDive, we’ll spend one hour participating in a real live Offers and Needs Market, with a half hour discussion afterwards to reflect on how this experience is relevant to our work as mappers.
1 Offers Exploration
Individuals are guided through a process of identifying what they’d like to offer others, how available they’d like to make those offers, and what they’d like to charge (if anything) for those offers.
2 Offers Exchange
Offers are shared in groups of up to 6 people, using a rapid-fire formula. Participants record offers they’d like to take up, throughout the process.
3 Needs Exploration
Individuals are guided through a process of identifying what they’d need, how urgent their needs are, and what they’re willing to pay (if anything) to have their needs met.
4 Needs Exchange
Needs are shared in groups of up to 6 people, using a rapid-fire formula. Participants record needs they may be able to help fulfill, throughout the process.
This DeepDive will be facilitated by Naryan Wong, and will use Miro.
If you are unfamiliar with this easy-to-use tool, you can watch a quick tutorial, or participate with pen and paper.
