Visual Thinking

Perhaps its is because I have broken my arm that I have rekindled an interest in visual thinking. While one handed typing is certainly a slow and error prone existence, it is more likely the recent article in fastcompany that made me stop and look into this again. It seems that corporates are investigating visual alternatives to help address complex porblems. Even Microsoft under the leadership of a NZ CFO resorted to images in an attempt to explain and improve corporate financial reporting.

So where has this latest research sent me; firstly to amazon to buy a recently published book; secondly to a blog (indexed.blogspot.com) and thirdly to YouTube for something entertaining.

  1. If you like describing things in detail – you need to look at http://www.edwardtufte.com/tufte/books_vdqi

    A bizarre but fascinating book, expensive but definitely worth reading.
