Example text

This may explain why so many practitioners who favor models say that the process of making models may be more useful than the model itself: Model creation requires reflection, editing, negotiation, and storytelling. These are all excellent activities for individuals or teams in search of synthesis and convergence. ” Our eye/brain hardware has optimized over thousands of years to process the visual world for patterns and meaning, and we can do so in a fraction of the time it takes to read and translate that meaning from text.

Time-based sequences feel natural, familiar, and so are a great place to start. Sequence models are useful because they direct our eyes to: • Stages and handoffs: The visual form can draw attention to gaps in the process that are not well understood or supported. • Progression: Sometimes the number of elements in a sequence tells its own story about the complexity of the subject. If a customer experience has 14 stages, that’s courting trouble! • Boundaries: Deciding where a subject starts and ends, for instance, can help teams commit to what is in or out of project scope.

We are, after all, sense-making machines driven toward answers. But self-doubt, piles of facts, and a fair bit of ambiguity can impair a team’s vision and clarity in ways that are uncomfortable and time-consuming. Too often, getting to conceptual clarity is where the team collides with the uncompromising requirements imposed by the project’s Gantt chart. If thirty minutes of open-ended writing (one of my favorite accelerants) or two hours of rough prototyping could save a team days of unfocused meetings and group gropes, would that merit stepping out of the Gantt chart?
