Alignment, buy-in, and improved understanding through more empathic visualization
Most business analysis deliverables accurately reflect the specific process and system flows through a series of boxes, arrows and diamonds. While descriptive, this type of deliverable shows only half the story and does not always provide a valuable tool for discussion, internal marketing and iteration.
In this talk, I will explore the value of incorporating human emotion and storytelling into typical process deliverables and discuss some tools and tactical approaches for visualizing your work.
Don’t worry, you do not need to be a graphic designer to learn these skills; even simple tweaks can make a big difference because in the end everything really is just boxes and arrows.
