To whom:Managers, team and project managers, experts whose productivity is determined by speed and accuracy of communication.
Today's professional world is quite obsessed with efficiency. Effective financial contribution, efficient time use, effective return on team competences and other forms of effectiveness are mentioned or mentioned at each meeting. We often forget, however, that these effectiveness do not come true if people cannot communicate effectively with each other.
Everyday, people often misunderstand what the other said, don't see the causes of the problems, don't see the relationship and sequence of actions, which creates a lot of problems for themselves and around them. How much would cost employees or teams who do not understand the task for which they have devoted their energy for days, even weeks? What could be the solution for such situations?
Research shows that verbal messages are difficult to understand and remember. Aristotle has said that “Soul Thought in Pictures” and the wisdom of the nation says that “one picture is worth a thousand words.” However, presentation design takes a lot of time, not every organisation employs a designer, but the use of images found on the Internet is limited by copyright.
Visualizing this message can help, but how can it be done quickly, simply and intellectually?
The answers are given by more nuanced questions:
- Why visualization IS NOT art?
- What are the goals of message?
- What can and cannot be visualized?
- How to find the visual essence of the message?
- How to accelerate communication with visual codes?
- How to use visual tools in my office?
- How to create message icons?
