VISUAL THINKING is a fundamental part of design thinking and other innovation processes such as Google Design Sprints and Lean Startup. It enables better communication between team members, boosts presentations, and  helps in presenting ideas.

This full-day workshop is an introduction to the fundamentals of using visuals for better communication. It will focus in three main axes: Visualizing Abstract Concepts, Process Visualization, and Visual Storytelling.

- What you will learn -

 

- Part 1 -

visual

Visualising Abstract Concepts

The complexity of your current jobs is overwhelming. It can be seen in all the vocabulary added through last years to describe tasks, areas, and activities. From concrete elements of projects like "pipeline", "backlog", and "deadline", to fuzzy concepts such as "innovation", "disruption", and "impact", we are more and more dependent on visual analogies and metaphors to clarify our goals to our peers. In this block, we will learn the basics of creating visual analogies that can support teamwork and empower your presentations.

 

- Part 2 -

Process

Process Visualization

You are constantly reshaping how people should organize themselves and their goals, particularly in the realms of management and leadership. It can be difficul to communicate and agree on milestones within your team. The main challenges are finding a consensus on how to operate and establishing a meaning behind your headlines. In this block, we will provide a framework to easily define processes within your team and create a structure with elements that people can understand and follow. 

 

- Part 3 -

stories

Visual Storytelling

Selling, teaching, and reporting - all of these presentation styles demands a different way of communicating. Visuals and Storytelling are a means of empowering your message and facilitating the understanding of the content you are trying to convey. Finding the perfect metaphor and story is the main challenge when creating a new presentation. In this block, we will study various frameworks for different kinds of presentations and how to find the best metaphors for your audience.
