I admire the work of skilled graphic facilitators. Pictures help ideas and outputs stick. We may not all be graphic artists. However, we can all add colour and interest to a session by letting loose with the pens.
Here’s one sheet I prepared earlier. Prior to this workshop participants were asked to respond to the question – what does innovation mean to me?
Two books that have given me the courage to keep having a go are Visual Thinking: Tools for Mapping Your Ideas by Nancy Margulies and Christina Valenza and Pocket Pics from The Grove. And ever since Dan Roam gave us permission in Back of the Napkin to play with stick figures, there’s no excuse not to draw what we’re thinking.
