Abstract/Description

One of the quickest ways to achieve greater buy-in, clearer communication and higher levels of engagement with team members, stakeholders, sponsors and business units is to get "visual agility".

Visual Agility is about three things:
- Capturing - the information, thinking and ideas of the team, stakeholders and sponsors
- Conveying - that information in a way that’s compelling and easy to understand
- Collaborating - using innovative tools that bring people together to think, talk and do great things

Visual agility. Yes its about using cards, stories, post it notes… but it's also about using visual charts, maps, models, metaphors, and most of all, hand crafted "drawn-in-the-moment" visuals.

If you're thinking you can't draw so well (or at all !), Lynne's session will boost your capability, instantly. And if you've already got some sketching skills up your sleeve, Lynne's session will guide you so you can finesse, develop and mature your visual thinking capability for even greater public display!

In agile we often speak about making work visible, showing progress, visualising solutions, scoping out possibilities. Having 'visual agility' gives you the capability and confidence to step into any role at a moment's notice and help bring clarity to the problem, quicker. This is more than sketch noting for your own use; it's for bringing clarity to situations and communicating and collaborating through complexity.

You'll learn some of the most highly engaging ways to facilitate with visuals in an agile world and come away with 60 visual images and icons to put to work straight away.

Lynne will be live drawing to show you what to do, how to apply it and what it can look like.
