Real World Project Management Webinar - Strategizing for Success: 3 Key Visualisation Models to Use Before Project Kick-Off
The real-world project management webinar series is exclusively for individual members.
A clear, upfront understanding of risks, requirements and responsibilities is critical to any project’s success. But project management software often compels the project manager to jump right into the management process, using linear-based models such as Gantt charts and spreadsheets.
Linear tools, as we know, are ideal for detailed and complex project management work. Visual tools, on the other hand, are ideal for big-picture or holistic thinking. In other words, the kind of thinking required for a project’s upfront strategic planning.
In this session, Nick Duffill, an expert in visual thinking, will share:
- Why visualisation enhances clarity and helps uncover what might be missed in a linear model
- A walk-through of three key visualization models for every project manager’s toolbox
- How tools like MindManager can help you use these visual models consistently and quickly before you start any new project
