It outlines why you should map your narrative landscape, and explains a six step process to get started. The steps include 1) identifying key stakeholders, 2) talking to stakeholders to identify relevant narratives, 3) documenting stakeholder insights, 4) looking for deeper worldviews underlying identified narratives, 5) creating a list defining each narrative identified, and 6) sharing results with stakeholders and discussing next steps.
