Business Sketching

Learn to use sketching as a communication tool.

Business Sketching is a communication tool

Business Sketching is a quick and effective communication tool. By applying simple sketching techniques, everyone can learn to visualise ideas and processes, and come across more convincingly with important messages.

The simple sketches make it easy and effective to reach a collective understanding, and convince others in meetings and presentations. Business Sketching also gives you greater confidence at the whiteboard, and secures engagement among the meeting participants.

With Business Sketching you can...

  • Run effective meetings
  • Secure quick collective understanding
  • Clarify messages and ideas
  • Create a collective visual language
  • Make collaboration engaging and interactive
  • Create a collective visual memory during projects
  • Save time and money

Do you recognise these situations?

INFORMATION OVERLOAD
Presentations and hand-overs die away in words and talk, because the recipients are unengaged and - consciously or unconsciously – give up on the message.

MISUNDERSTANDINGS
Precious time is squandered on misunderstandings and bad communication.

LACK OF TRANSPARENCY
Overview and transparency is a distant dream, because all information and materials are hidden away in computers and reports.

Avoid drowning in blah blah blah

Business Sketching helps you clarify your message through visualisation. The idea is to support your words and focus on the central part of your message. At the same time, Business Sketching involves and engages, making it possible to come to agreement faster.

Business Sketching is a tool everyone can learn

Sketching is not only for designers. On the contrary, Project Managers, HR, Executives, Strategists, Business Developers, Tech People, Analysts, Facilitators, etc. can all prosper from using Business Sketching as a tool.

Business Sketching is like working in "Beta mode”

Beta mode is a test state, where new ideas are constantly added and tested to see if they make sense. Business Sketching works in the same way, as it is an easy and quick way to visualise an idea and get feedback from others, without spending loads of time and resources. This makes Business Sketching super-efficient, since we can’t deny that time is money.

Visualisation makes it easy to share

When you visualise your thoughts and ideas, it’s easier for others to give feedback and get engaged in your work.

When you solve complex issues together, the collaboration becomes more efficient and manageable when you work visually.

It’s incredibly easy to digitalise your sketches, and thereby share your ideas and thoughts with many.
