Create User-Centric Products and Features with Product Discovery

11-Sep-2017 11:22:54 Visualisation Graphic templates How-To

What makes consumers decide to buy your product or service? How important is adopting a user-centric approach when planning new features? Why does solving real-life problems matter for your customers? Read this blog to find out.


On my commute into the office today I was struck by the vast array of exciting new products that seemed to flaunt themselves from every angle. The adverts that flash up on my phone whilst nosing around on Social Media, the mesmerising new gadgets that brandish themselves from the centre of the free ad paper, and the cutting edge fashion that lines the high street. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little tempted by these goods, but would it be enough to lure me into parting with my well-earned cash?

How to Use Creative Storyboarding for Business

Creative Storyboarding is a powerful business tool, which can be used to aid alignment and stakeholder engagement. Why settle for complex process maps and weighty project plans, when you can express your message in a visual way, that will resonate better with your stakeholders?

Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose - The Key to Motivation?

19-Aug-2016 14:15:04 Motivate people Visualisation

 

This might not be the first time you have heard the words Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose, emblazoned within a blog, paraded across a slide or bellowed from the rooftops - especially for those of you that are conference junkies or Meet-up gurus. I have illustrated these three words on multiple occasions, as they are salient points rising at many conferences from the inspiring talk by Daniel Pink.

Due to the ever-growing popularity of Daniel’s renowned talk and video, my desire to share how I have been inspired by these buzzwords may rest on deaf ears. However, I will bravely continue in the hope that I can keep you engaged.

Release the Power of Visualisation with Graphic Templates

Visualisation to Unlock Potential

I often hear people coming to my Meetups and 'Visualisation Workshops' asking about the potential of visualisation. Often people, just like you, have questions about how illustration can help - do any of these ring bells with you?

  • What if I could visualise my ideas more effectively?
  • How can I make it easier for people to relate to what I have in my mind?
  • How can I keep my stakeholders focused and make teams collaborate more effectively?

Scrum Gathering Orlando Through The Eyes Of A Live Illustrator

Equipped with my graphic board, pens, sunglasses and shorts I set sail for the Scrum Gathering in Orlando. Having attended two awesome gatherings in the past, the bar was set high - however, I was far from disappointed.

From the offset, co-chairs Anu Smalley and Kate Megaw knocked it out of the park by entering the stage to the sound of 'Starman' by David Bowie, whilst wearing convincing spacesuits complete with helmets. This was their genius way of setting the Gathering’s theme 'Infinity and Beyond: Transforming the World of Work'. With three tracks on offer, ranging from beginner ('Mission Control'), intermediate ('Orbiting the Earth'), to advanced levels ('Agile Galaxy'), there were more than enough sessions to choose from for all 1100 attendees. Let’s not forget that this was the largest Scrum Gathering so far.

Graphic Facilitator Skills: Innovation Through Visualisation

12-Apr-2016 11:30:00 Innovation Visualisation

The benefit of being a live illustrator is that every event spurs new insights, challenges and inevitably new drawings. However, one factor remains the same.

Without exception, usually whilst I'm crawling around the floor clutching pens, someone will murmur the words "I wish I could draw"! This cutting statement naturally triggers my auto-response ‘but you can’. Ok, it’s a simple and effortless response, but my genuine opinion is 'you can'!

As the majority of events I attend are within the Agile and innovation arena, the likelihood is that this disheartening statement would have been presented by an individual who already embraces the power of visualisation within their workplace. Be that an UX designer, Scrum Master, Workshop Facilitator or even Project Manager, there are basic skills that can enable anyone to communicate through pictures.

Does Agile Scale at the Portfolio Level?

In business environments, professionals are still questioning if agile scales at the portfolio level, when in fact the answer is quite clear - yes it does. However, I am still seeing immature practices and behaviours at this level of the organisation.
