We call our approach System visualization. It is a way of processing complexity so it becomes manageable. System visualization is based on a set of fundamental systems theory assumptions, a focus on group learning and the idea that places where social processes unfold can be considered visual learning arenas.
The Five Visual Design Loops is a systematic method to working visually. Each loop supports you in growing a visual practice. When working with us you will experience how these loops guide our shared work and create value.
When you work visually, many different competence areas can come into play. We have identified three competence areas that we find particularly relevant in our work. For each competence there are a set of skills we bring to the work.
Purpose, mission, vision and belief
Purpose: To show the world that it is at least as important to learn to draw as it is to learn to read, write, and count
Mission: To accelerate the use of pen, paper and big picture thinking in all sectors of society
Vision: A society where we teach our children to sketch, create overviews, see connections, find meaning and draw it out - together
Belief: We believe in the value of seeking, developing and seeing the bigger picture. With a bigger picture mindset you listen differently, you engage differently and you create differently. You automatically create solutions that benefit the larger whole
Principles of practice
Be yourself - Never stop asking questions - Do what matters - Engage with others - Start now
