Visual Thinking is a communication method that uses pictures to show ideas, concepts, people, places, things and connects them via process flows and relationships. It is backed by research that the brain processes images faster and diagrams with relationships have a higher retention value.
Visual Thinking enables more collaborative brainstorming sessions since it allows everyone to participate to create the visual record of the discussion. It allows you to tell a non linear story to drive understanding and helps visual learners to assimilate information more quickly.
Visual Thinking helps overcome information overload in an age where information is coming at us from various different sources at a faster pace than we can read and understand it.
