PMI Olympia WA Chapter Dinner: Visualizations For Affecting Change

Date: Tuesday, May 20, 2014 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Duration: 3 Hours

People like to see how they relate to others, how changes will affect them, and where they are headed. In the same way that pictures help to learn about an exciting tropical destination, visualizations of relationships, changes, and processes help people comprehend how information affects them. Helping people visualize a new tropical setting is easy using pictures and video; however, the challenge in the business world is the ability to physicalize intangible concepts. Sometimes it takes graphics, such as graphs and drawings, other times it takes role playing. The person delivering the message must understand the dimensions of data (flow, relationships, time, etc.) and what will influence the recipient. The secret is picking the proper visualization. Although experience is the best teacher, studying examples spurs your inner creative genius. This presentation is designed to work with the audience to show and determine various methods of creating visualizations to communicate problems and determine a solution.
