- Graphic recording, visual planning, story boarding, graphic templates, idea mapping, etc.

In the realm of creativity, I have seen visual tools used successfully in workshops at IDEO. In the realm of employee engagement and organizational productivity, I have seen their use by Ram Charan in planning sessions which have had a significant impact on engagement and organizational focus/productivity. Different tools were used by each facilitator.
"Organizations are no longer able to handle the complexity of what we are facing. In the face of confusion, people at work and people in meetings retreat into simplistic explanations and intolerant positions of non-listening. Visual language and visual listening can be a hopeful response to these kinds of problems. Visualization is a powerful way to resolve confusions and groups that arise from inadequate or conflicting mental models. This is crucial when those models involve our ideas of how work gets done, how teams cooperate, how to make decisions, how to organize, and how to learn."
Visualization works because certain areas of the mind cannot distinguish between what you see with your eyes and what you see with your mind. Patterns, trends and correlations that might go undetected in text-based data can be exposed and recognized easier with visual tools. They connect the heart and the mind, providing access to a deep internal perspective and use of the right brain that is lacking. The author has observed that people working visually have better ideas, make better decisions, and are more committed to producing results.
Drivers leading to the adoption of visual tools and visual meetings include:
1. Organizations must work leaner and quicker.
2. Organizational success and survival demands working across functions, geography, and cultural boundaries.
3. It is getting harder to get people to make sense of the avalanche of available information
4. Alignment and follow-through from meetings critically important to productivity and engagement.
5. Groups must be able to think big picture, over longer periods of time.
6. Rapid trend changes require everyone to upgrade their mental models of how things work on a frequent basis. Without this, impatience and resistance will be a major obstacle.
"Visual Meetings" gives the reader the toolbox and tricks to unlock creativity, collaboration, and breakthrough thinking. The book is organized around the following topics:
* What if Meetings Were Truly Fun and Productive?
* Why Visual Learning is So Compelling (and Easy)
* Mapping Ideas and Finding Key Patterns
* Graphics for Enacting Plans
* Seeing It All Come Together
Several sub-sections of note include: why visualization is worth 80 IQ points; how using pictures gets people to interact and collaborate; problem solving with visual tools; innovation and change using visual tools; and how to plant seeds of a real revolutions in meetings. Sibbet covers tools such as the use of sticky notes and dots (IDEO's classic visual tool), writing on the wall, the use of graphic templates (provided), visual documentation, the use of tablets in web meetings, and visualizing goals, roles, and action plans.
Visual meeting techniques will provide the much needed breakthrough for achieving extraordinary results in innovation, employee engagement, and organizational productivity. This book provides a comprehensive "how-to-do-it" tool kit with clear instructions and many examples of how others around the globe have used these techniques with great success.
But I do have a caveat which leads me to give less than a five star rating. It is this. To what extent will people who do not naturally think in this mode be able to adopt these methods? I appreciate the author's knowledge and experience and his belief that everybody can draw and can develop skills. Even if that is so, however, in order to develop the plethora of skills and techniques in this book and to use them dynamically, will take enormous work and dedication. This book is excellent, but it is not an easy fix for the management and development of small group and large group development and creative settings. My advice would be to look at it carefully if you think you need to develop such skills from scratch, unless you are willing really to work hard at skill development. If you believe you already have some degree of skill, however, this book can be a revelation.
I am, by no means an artist. I am not even a person that doodles. With this book I learned to draw simple figures to get the message across and find, as I doodle more and more, that my drawings come faster and easier. I highly recommend this book to all facilitators.
Visual Meetings is written in a clear, concise style. It explains how to facilitate meetings and engage groups in a whole new way. If you are already a facilitator, this book will take you the rest of the way to start doing it visually. If you are a beginning facilitator, there are lots of tips to help you grow more confident and skilled. And if you're thinking "but I can't draw," don't worry! You can do everything in this book too. Step-by-step descriptions tell you how to do everything from developing a basic visual vocabulary, to hanging large sheets of paper, to managing groups of all sizes and kinds. It's a great resource for practicing visual facilitators, too. I recommend it very highly.
