Harvard Business Review on Visual Facilitation

The magazine of Harvard Business Review in September is featuring an article on visual facilitation in business:
Vision Statement: Tired of PowerPoint? Try This Instead.

Graphic recording (or visual facilitation) consists in capturing in a graphical form the discussion and the interaction of a meeting. It’s a valid alternative to powerpoint, useful both to summarize the group conversation “but also as visual references for key goals or processes.” “The goal: to help people make connections and better recall key points.” (HBR).

It comes in the form of large paper murals drawn by specialized artists, or in an electronic form, supported by graphic facilitation software that projects the collaborative visualization, and has the advantage to get the participants highly involved because they are creating the visual representation themselves.

Oh that’s the topic of my research, by the way 😉
