The entire workshop was brilliant! If you are brand new to Visual Thinking, you will immediately be able to implement the new tools learned once you're back in your workplace. If you are more seasoned, this becomes a master class and you engage at another level; you observe how people respond to the tools and where points of clarification and intervention are most helpful. I could take the same workshop again and get more and different value out of it."

XPLANE’s visualization process forced me to think things through, articulate, test, and validate my ideas. This workshop helped me distill complex ideas into stories that non-technical people could understand.”
