Information comes to us in many different forms and levels of abstraction. Situations, concepts or systems are perceived as complex and unable to grasp. When faced with too much information people tend to shut down. Visualizations help to make abstractions clear and create overview and structure in complex situations. As the saying goes: “a picture is worth a thousand words.”
The illustration of ideas is an excellent way to organize thoughts and improve the ability to think and communicate clearly. At WAACS we use visual thinking as a powerful tool for interaction, sharing ideas, giving people a grip on their current situation and helping them to move forward. In our experience, visual thinking leads our clients to new insights and a better understanding of themselves and their goals. It also challenges others to share the ideas they have and to generate new ones.
