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 untested, which raises open questions about general applicability and relevance. In this work, we operationalize ARROW in additional design cases. With insights gained from the operational experience, we propose ARROWS (for ARROW-Support) as a refinement of the initial framework. ARROWS was assessed via a workshop with designers. Results highlight the need for appropriate resources supporting worth mapping. In order to fulfill this need, we have created and released a website providing designers with knowledge on ARROWS and WMs that follows a more practically oriented perspective.
