Some decisions defy pure step-by-step logic. Excessive analysis with words and numbers can kill “vision”, so today we’re asking you to be “visionaries” by collaborating on a visual representation of a key organizational issue. Instead of dissecting your issue through analysis, you will integrate your differing perspectives through pictures and visual symbols to “see” the bigger picture and experience first-hand another mode of decision making. This can be a powerful way for managers to access insight, to explore, and to innovate. The objectives for today’s topic are to:
- Contrast “seeing” an issue with just thinking about it.
- Appreciate how creating a piece of collaborative art can change your perception of a key issue and of decision making in general.
- Enhance your capability as a “visionary”, seeing a cohesive whole from seemingly separate elements.
