Visual Thinking in Projects

When you start up a new project, graphic facilitation can be very useful. I sometimes help visualize processes with groups who need to clarify their common language, to set the goal and find milestones on the way. On big paper I show the process, map the project organisation, and for instance draw a timeline. The paper is supposed to be alive as long as the project is going on, and it can also be a way to remind each other about solutions that worked or did not work, so you don’t have to waste any time discussing things you tried already. When new people enter the organisation they can easily get a project overview. When the project is finished you have recorded everything nicely on the way, and this makes it easier to evaluate each step.
