Worth Maps (WMs) are promising because they model interactive systems following different perspectives. Consequently, WMs support design in many ways. ARROW was introduced to provide designers with a systematic approach to worth mapping. However, the framework currently remains untest-ed, which raises open questions about general applicability and relevance.
In this work, we operationalize ARROW in additional design cases. With in-sights gained from the operational experience, we propose ARROWS (for ARROW-Support) as a refinement of the initial framework. ARROWS was as-sessed via a workshop with designers. Results highlight the need for appropriate resources supporting worth mapping. In order to fulfill this need, we have cre-ated and released a website providing designers with knowledge on ARROWS and WMs that follows a more practically oriented perspective.
