GRAPHIC FACILITATION

Your company can learn to use sketching as an everyday tool.

Graphic facilitation is a method, that uses visual tools to guide individuals or companies towards a goal. 

The method is widely used in larger corporations with complex infrastructures where everything needs to run smoothly.

GRAPHIC FACILITATION CREATES OVERVIEW

Graphic facilitation can help to make processes more efficient and provide an overview of complex workflows and processes. To explain the various steps in a change process to a group of employees can be an tricky affair, but with the use of icons, colors and symbols you can get it all down on one piece of paper that everyone can understand, grasp and follow.

GRAPHIC FACILITATION VERSUS GRAPHIC RECORDING

Graphic facilitation is often confused with Graphic Recording. Where graphic recording is about one or more illustrators documenting the content of a meeting, graphic facilitation is more about how to facilitate a process by using visual tools.

A key difference is also that graphic recording typically are performed by professional illustrators, while graphic facilitation typically involves a good facilitator and the employees themselves are drawing, creating cut-outs and the likes too, to visualize for example the company’s strategy.

EVERYONE CAN JOIN – ALSO YOUR EMPLOYEES

One of the main ideas behind graphic facilitation is that anyone can join in. It doesn’t necessarily require a certain ability to draw. There are lots of good books and inspirational tools, where it is allowed to copy icons, shapes or to further develop them.
