Visual Answers to Everyday Challenges

Wednesday 12:00pm - 12:30pm, Agile Day (Agile Room)

It’s more than drawing… visual answers to our everyday challenges

This talk presents a palette of visual answers that address a range of everyday challenges. Our goal is that everybody leaves the room with visual answers to spread at work.

We will follow the story of our product development team - their reformation into new delivery teams, their move to greater agility and their delivery of goals - and share the visualisation experiments we ran to help our teams with communication, direction and understanding the big picture.

Some of the visual answers to challenges will be lack of alignment, high level picture and roadmap clarity, sharing an idea, a strategy or a new piece of knowledge.

As we go through each of the challenges we will share with the audience a set of steps that can be easily applied to improve the way we explore the best answer to a problem in order to generate a visual or tangible outcome.

We will include a practical exercise by pairs to experience the same process we have been applying. We will also prepare a social channel and encourage the audience to share the resulting outcomes of the activity to learn from each other.
