What if we told you that expressing your ideas visually, as well as verbally, improves the likelihood that your team will be able to collaboratively unpack requirements and recall information?
Is this workshop for you?
Do you want a way to simplify complex and potentially confusing information? Do you want to reduce the misunderstanding of requirements? Is your team ever confused over what they have committed to? If you answered yes to any of these questions, join us to learn some practical techniques on how to draw information and requirements out of people into a tangible form that your team can use.
Why visual thinking?
-Helps teams to see the big picture
-Helps teams to learn faster and more effectively
-Helps teams tell stories and make sure that everyone is on the same page
-Uses all four learning modalities: visual, auditory, kinaesthetic and tactile (read/ write)
-Increases individual engagement in conversations because people engage with their whole body, not just their minds
-Helps teams think at a creative, strategic and tactical level
-Reduces meeting times by 24% because people are focused on the same conversation
-Serves as a visual record of a conversation (perfect to supplement user stories and acceptance criteria)
