Visual Tools for Consultants from Eris Weaver

  2. 2. DEFINITIONS Visual thinking: using imagery, drawing, and graphic displays to see patterns, solve problems, and communicate. Mind map: diagram used to visually outline and connect information, with related concepts radiating outward from a core, central word or image. Popularized by Tony Buzan in the 1970s. Graphic recording: documenting a conversation, meeting, or presentation in real time in words and images. Can be done live or virtually, on large paper, whiteboard, or digitally. Graphic facilitation: integrating facilitation and interactive visual practices to facilitate group process. Sketchnotes: Taking personal notes using images as well as words. Gamestorming: the use of interactive games for group work including ideation, strategic planning, design, problem solving. See book of the same name by Dave Gray et al. Kinesthetic modeling: a hands-on method for creative problem-solving created by John Ward. Individuals or groups silently make three-dimensional models out of modeling dough, popsicle sticks, random objects, etc. Template, graphic template: a pre-drawn template, designed for a particular type of group process such as strategic planning or visioning, which is filled in during the group session. THINGS TO TRY… • • • • • • • • • • • Get an inexpensive sketchbook and pens that you like. Carry them with you and doodle or sketchnote while you’re at meetings or presentations. Try mindmapping next time you need to plan a presentation, make a to-do list, or take notes on a book. Put a whiteboard or flipchart in your office where you can write on it easily and often! Put butcher paper on a wall, or paint a wall with whiteboard or chalkboard paint. Read one of the books on the resource list. Get friendly with sticky notes! Try using one of the attached templates in one of your meetings. Take a workshop in one of the methods we’ve played with today. Bring a visual practitioner into your workplace – to train your staff, or document one of your meetings. Put play-doh or “fiddles” out on the tables during meetings. Try giving a presentation using a whiteboard or flipchart instead of PowerPoint.
