My Photo

David's Portfolio

  •  HBR "75 Years of Management Ideas & Practice"
    I selected the following large Storymap's as representative examples of my information design work at The Grove where I was a lead designer on the project. Each of them were critical in moving us to another level of confidence and excitement about this big picture way of working. What these photos do not show, of course, is the rich process of facilitated design meetings that we led as a way of generating this material.

My Strategic Visioning Collaborators

  • RachelSmith
    I've included this photo album of some of the people in The Grove's associate network that use our facilitation and Strategic Visioning methods integrally in their work. They are my teachers and I theirs. Collaboration networks are behind most truly innovative, robust methodologies, and our is no exception. Claiming credit as an individual would be like a tree claiming credit for the forest. If you aren't here and know that you should be, send me you picture and a writeup and I'll post it.

Partners for Change Model

  • Sustainabilityplayersmap
    These are two supportive visuals for a Partners for Change model I co-designed with Sissel Waage and Ruth Rominger. It shows how we would bring multiple sustainability researchers and activists together around critical issues and support them to create collaborative efforts in media and tool creation.

Hi David,

Thanks for the opportunity to listen in on your webinar. It is a delightful complement to your "Visual Meetings" book, and convincingly demonstrates the principles of engaging your audience through graphics.

My husband and I have used your templates and graphic facilitation methods with planning and project teams around the world. Through the years of working with your materials, we continue to be amazed by the group creativity that evolves when people encounter visual meetings.

Your book provides many windows on why simple drawings are so effective at encouraging shared understanding and systems thinking. Concepts such as "push creates resistance and pull creates participation" are helping us explain how graphic facilitation draws people into dialogue and collaboration. This is handy when meeting sponsors have not yet had direct experience of the results.

Your work grows ever richer. I look forward to your next book on Visual Teams.
