You Can’t Manage What You Can’t See

April 22, 2015

You know the old saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words”. And you know what it means – pictures convey so much more about people or an idea you’re trying to describe than you could ever hope to with words. So why is it in knowledge work, that some of the most important information and conversations are captured and conveyed with words alone? Whether these words are text in a document or hidden in a tool, we’re settling for less. Our work pleads for visualizations.
Chris will share how using visualization has changed his projects and his company. His experiences working with large and small teams in a variety of industries has shown that although people implement popular tools, they don’t know how to leverage them. Chris will show examples of visualization methods that enable better decisions and help teams develop shared understanding. He will give you a way to evaluate your own visual controls.
Presented at the 2015 AgileIndy Conference.
