This colorful, offbeat business guide—sort of THINKERTOYS meets SARK—shows how to add zip, interaction, and excitement to just about any kind of meeting or presentation. The author has helped everyone from engineers to corporate planners create stunning visual presentations, showing them how to use visual symbols and color to map out ideas, plans, projections, and the like. Even if you can't draw a straight line, this book will have you doodling away like a pro in no time flat, and turning the most boring planning sessions into whiz-bang think tanks. Even the most pinstriped project teams have found these tools useful when mapping out strategic plans, capturing vision sessions, depicting project designs, or making training programs fun and memorable. Real-life success stories and step-by-step drawing hints make this the must-have book for managers, facilitators, trainers, and anyone who helps groups work together.
