The Entities Position Map shows correlations and accumulations of items, facts and analysis results in relation to two relevant project parameters.

This method helps to synthesize results and derivatives from a set of analysis results by visually helping to visualize the relationships among the individual results.

Especially in the synthesis phase of innovation projects, this method reliably helps to gain an overview, to recognize new possibilities and to support team communication. It often prevents endless dispersal and discussion and ensures valid and good derivations and guiding questions.
