Mr. Wardley’s book and blog are the primary source material for this blog. However, they are written mostly in a narrative style, telling a story of how he discovered & developed the methods, or how he applied them to specific problems. This is an excellent way to learn the methods, but tends to leave information scattered across multiple chapters. For example, there are 64 types of strategic moves, each with prerequisites and techniques. This encyclopedia collects these into a single page for handy reference, with links back to the source material.
This encyclopedia is a great place to learn about details and specifics of the many elements included in Wardley Mapping, but it is not designed to be an introductory tutorial. For an introduction, try these resources, listed roughly in order of time required:
Simon Wardley OSCON 2014 Keynote (video): "Introduction to Value Chain Mapping"
"Wardley Mapping Introductory Course" offered by Leading Edge Forum
