Kumu has been designed from the ground up to be a powerful, flexible mapping machine, capable of mapping complexity of all kinds.
Below are a few examples of the many ways Kumu can be used:
- Systems maps & causal loop diagrams that help you better understand and engage complex systems and environments.
- Stakeholder maps that help you understand the complex web of loyalties, interests, influence, and alignment of key players around important issues.
The below examples illustrate how Kumu was used as a systems-mapping tool in the Map the System project. These two examples are from two 2021 Global Finalist teams.
Sticky Studio is Kumu’s take on a simple and streamlined whiteboard tool, with an emphasis on the relationships among stickies. Each sticky also has its own discussion thread, allowing you to build a map that matches the richness of your discussions. Other features include organic, sticky-dot style voting, templates for easy re-use, background shapes and images, and support for exporting to Kumu.
