Knowledge workflows don't start with Reports, Kanban boards and To-Do Lists.
We surveyed people like you and asked them the question How do you go about solving problems?
I think incredibly visually and things feel ‘right’ when they ‘align’. It means I can be very certain very fast and I can move to a representation of an idea on a slide almost instantly.
My son’s math class is set up in teams with a whiteboard desktop as the table for each team. The teacher gives them a problem before they get any training on how to solve it. They do their best to figure it out together first, then individually to see if they can crack it.
CEO at an Education Company
Abstract models and patterns.
Emerging Technology & Innovation Consultant
I have a habit of using the air around me as a 3D canvas space. There must be other people out there who do that too (am I crazy?)... How do I think about relationships between tables of data? Get the 👐 in the air and map it out. Similar for thinking about and understanding diagrams or concepts more generally. It all comes to life more than something on a screen or paper. It doesn't help my drawing skills at all though. 🙃
Data Scientist at a Travel Company
Diagramming and drawing things, that’s how solve problems, correlate, develop relationships, and understand concepts. Data visualization is key or else I’m staring at spreadsheets waiting for my brain to see a picture.
A Digital Innovator
Colors, diagrams, patterns in colors.
Non-Exec Director and Fundraising Specialist
I am more direct/relationship focused communicator and a visual learner, so if someone is unrelatable/talking around the subject and there are no visuals, I get very lost!
Founder at a Marketing Agency
As a UX'er I hear what people say, see what people do and analyse numbers. All that being said I'm definitely more visual and see things in diagrams and flows.
UX Director and Startup Founder
I see in patterns, both visually and numerically.
A Customer Engagement Innovator
Geometric Shapes - like Tetris - seeing how things fit together and if two objects are on a collision course.
Founder & CEO of an Upcycling Environmental Company
Holographic thinking here - basically dove deep and throw a load of things on a mental wall. Then join dots organically as opposed to a,b,c... Find that I often have to spell the a-z out in steps and then show the shortcut otherwise it gets lost.
CEO of a Blockchain Company
I've never met a white board I didn't like. Kanban literally gives me goose bumps. I still believe in the Think Tank process. Write it all out. Get the buy in. Have snacks! The osmotic conversations are rad! I visualize and assess. I high five the team and we are good. Mapping, mapping, mapping. Then chocolate. Yes!
Technical Senior Program Manager
100% Diagrams. Until I get the chance to draw out what’s being explained to me, I’m only ever 50% of the way there - and like a nodding dog!
Vice President at a Bank
I look for linkages, flows, plausibility.
Director of Research at a Media Agency
