Drawing out a group's creativity

April 26, 2015

One of my favorite skills acquired while working at Design Concepts is Graphic Recording and Facilitation.

I learned how to use David Sibbet’s Visual Meetings techniques several years ago at a training workshop by the Grove Consultants and have found it invaluable in every meeting. The theory is to document and facilitate the meeting using markers on a large board so everyone participating can have a shared understanding of what is discussed as well as a visual artifact after the meeting is over. 

Graphic Recording and Facilitation are not artistic skills. EVERYONE can record visually!

Graphic Recording and Facilitation (VR&F) are not artistic skills. EVERYONE can record visually! Recording on a large board in front of a room full of people is what takes some training and practice.

In an attempt to use more images than words to describe the Visual Facilitation and Recording process, please open the gallery below to see a series of sketches that describe the visual process…VISUALLY!
