XPLANE has joined forces with Culture Labx to participate in their Culture Design Series. The Mapping Company Culture workshop is part of series at General Assembly that showcases a variety of models in culture design: visual thinking, brand strategy, positive psychology, experience mapping, and more.

Through an XPLANE led, hands-on workshop you will learn the basics of Visual Thinking and then apply them to create a culture map that brings the unique features of your organization to life.

Culture design is challenging—it really does take a village. We encourage participants register as a pair. You can be co-workers or friends. It doesn’t matter, we just think it’s more fun with a partner.
