About the session

From ancient times, humans have used diagrams to represent and communicate, whether through cave drawings, sketches or schematics.

In this age where remote international knowledge-working is more commonplace, developing our skills for effectively and meaningfully communicating ideas is perhaps more important than ever.

Through practical activities, we will explore examples from sticky boards, concept mapping, organisational charts, value stream maps, the Cynefin framework, and security and software architecture diagrams, blending theory and practice to create new and improved diagrams. 

Participant Takeaways:

  • DISCOVER the philosophy of diagrams
  • IDENTIFY diagramming practice
  • APPLY scientific research to improve your diagrams
  • ARTICULATE through diagrams to communicate about complex topics
