Get Visual

Throughout the entire process
2-40 people

During a brainstorm or synthesis session, there is usually a lot of activity involving charts, drawings, cartoons, and words. While some individuals may be more inclined to express themselves visually, it is beneficial for everyone to think in this way. Visualizing ideas makes them more concrete and helps to clarify thoughts for the team. Even a basic representation of an idea can be useful for others to understand and expand upon. It is important to not only limit visual thinking to pictures, but to also consider sculpting, building, collaging, or any other method that can effectively convey your ideas.

Workshop steps


Adopt a general strategy rather than a single activity, and always have Post-its, paper, and pens readily available for spontaneous drawing, graphing, charting, or creating.


Take time to discuss your drawings with the team, as they might require some extra clarification to ensure everyone understands the visuals.


When struggling to convey an idea, try illustrating it. You might be amazed at how rapidly it becomes clear.
