Independent journalists have to position themselves. There are countless possibilities. Irmela Schwab shares her knowledge in a expert crossover how she positions herself. She has already created many cross-netics with the Canvas. Now she presents her approach in a cross-netics with Excel.
Cross-over with Excel
As described in this article, there is now a Kübernetik-Table calculation. Designed for cübernetics who have used the canvas several times or simply want to use a software tool. The cross matrix also allows to create larger overnetics with more influence sizes than the standard canvas. Calculations and analysis are also performed automatically.

The How Question
The concrete how-question, which Irmela Schwab treats in the Excel-cübernetics is:

A Fast-Forward-Video in which steps 1. to 3. are shown.
Response block 1
The table calculation simplifies the counting of the incoming and outgoing arrows and the calculations. The significant influencing variables for the 1st set of answers therefore result in:
The most important thing how I use my network to position myself as a specialist journalist is that I arrange targeted meetings with people, preferably at relevant digital business conferences, where I also arrange and conduct topic-related interview appointments.
Response block 2
The response sentence 2 resulting from the influencing variables with the highest control factors is:
In terms of using my network to position myself as a professional journalist, I should start by saying that I mean maintain my professional curiosity, to maintain my practise in open contact-joy, always introduce myself actively personally in conversations, thereby tell private things about me in order to gain trust and arrange appointments with specific people in advance.
- Thinking about which private stories I want to tell about myself
- at every meeting with people in the next days I always introduce myself actively before I am asked
- Create a list of people I want to speak to at the next conference
