Visual Thinking Demystified

June 26th, 2014 by Shane Currey

There is a common misconception that something shouldn’t be drawn until you understand it. On the contrary, sketches – however rudimentary or amateurish – help people better describe, discuss and understand issues. This is because visual thinking helps turn tacit assumptions into explicit information. For example, if you’re looking to improve an existing business model depicting it will unearth logical gaps and help facilitate discussion. Or if you’re designing a whole new business model visual thinking will allow you to discuss different options by adding, removing or moving pictures around.

The act of making is not new. Craftspeople, tinkerers, hobbyists, and inventors can all be considered makers. As Chris Anderson puts it, ‘We are all born makers’. Broadly, a maker is someone who derives identity and meaning from the act of creation. What distinguishes contemporary makers from the inventors and DIYers of other eras is the incredible power afforded them by modern technologies and a globalised economy, both to connect and learn, and also as a means of production and distribution.

He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favour by serving him. He is doing us a favour by giving us an opportunity to do so” – Mahatma Gandhi
