The ability to visualize is becoming an important skill for many project managers. Good project management requires efficient meetings and team interactions to solve problems, make decisions, and execute plans accordingly. In this workshop we will explore visual facilitation techniques for addressing the typical challenges that project managers face. Learn visual techniques that will:

  • prepare you to run engaging meetings
  • facilitate big-picture thinking
  • clarify complexity
  • create visually interesting flip charts (pre-meeting or live)
  • co-develop an action plan or roadmap that gets high buy-in from all your stakeholders.

Incorporating a visual approach will take your project and team management skills to the next level. You will no longer hesitate to intervene in a meeting, produce illustrative schemes, or present with flipcharts instead of PowerPoint slides.


In one day, we will cover the basis of both visualization and facilitation techniques.

Benefits of visual facilitation:

  • it helps to align group thinking
  • it boosts creativity
  • it improves understanding by reducing complex systems to their core
  • it improves the quality of your communication

Target audience

The workshop will work for anyone concerned with projects and will be helpful for: Scrum Masters, Scrum Product Owners, project managers, agile coaches, business analysts, process managers or analysts, engineers, R&D, ...

You do not need to have any artistic drawing skills. You just need an open mind and be willing to learn something new (and fun).


The enthusiasm of the trainer was super. A great "work"shop with enough time to practise the new technics and the experience of drawing and focus in an integrated excercise.
