Depth of relationship vs intent
Jason Yip

Hi Jason, I’ve found Go metaphors quite useful for communicating this when training coaches. If you imagine each intersection on a Go board as a value stream in the market — internal or external market — and stones surrounding some empty space as a team, you can model your nemesis relationship as simple contact between stones of different colours.

It’s a neat model because you can see surrounding empty territory as making your team a profit centre, where having it filled makes you a removable cost centre. And then all the usual Go patterns — aji, thickness, ko, capturing races, etc. have real world meanings. Anyway, for your consideration.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
