Processes Need Facilitation And Visualization
Do you notice that today’s times make you feel uncertain and clueless? Leaders, teams and projects are facing challenges never seen before. We agree with MIT international transformation and systems researcher Otto Scharmer: “The crisis of our time is not one of finance or economics, but of consciousness – that is, of our thinking and our view of the world.” That’s where visual facilitation comes in.

Visual Facilitation: Perfect for Meeting Support
Facilitation is the art of guiding people through processes that lead to agreed-upon outcomes – in a way that evokes participation, ownership, and creativity among all participants. Combined with the skills and practices of Visual Thinking, valuable meetings and group processes are created.
We believe: Those who seek change today need a process that combines facilitation and visualization. If you believe in the power of dialogue and participation, Visual Facilitation is the tool of your choice. It is the “DNA” of our company and our team to have internalized an appropriate set of methods, tools and experiences. Your challenges will find a place in a safe space (Hosting) where you move from reacting to acting. Your dialogs and results will be visually anchored as “Group Memory” (Harvesting).
The combination of co-creative facilitation and interactive visualization accelerates processes and makes them more effective. So you are able to gain clarity and are in a position to make good decisions. In your business, in meetings, workshops, projects, and at events.
When was the last time you asked yourself how you could take a step forward? To encourage this, we use the meaningful and skillful asking of powerful questions. Why? Doesn’t a transformational step happen when a question is asked within the dominating paradigm – but can only be answered from outside that paradigm? This is exactly what we apply in interactive work with groups. And in the simultaneous “harvesting” of the results (visually).
Visual or Graphic Facilitation is a facilitation method. Visual Facilitation allows you to work visually and interactively with a group. We guide and direct participants while documenting what is happening in the room. Results that we capture visually flow straight back into the group intelligence.
This is how we create amazing spaces of possibility: When the right people are in the room and the visual practitioner asks the right questions in co-creation with the facilitator, you get the value of a dialog culture in a process as a convincing result. Supported by the right logistics, environment, material.
Visual Facilitation is suitable for any kind of meeting, learning process, collecting ideas or other content in a group, for team building, for vision and strategy processes, for goals and mission statements, for scenario planning, in product & services or R&D development, rapid prototyping, agile development and much more in change.
