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.

Thanks for sharing this David, I enjoyed reading this very much!


hi. I am interested to be a graphic facilitator too. but I live in Australia and there seemed no chance for me to go to USA as I have little children.
Do you happen to train in Australia as well or if you don't, do you know where I can go for it? I live in Brisbane.

Nicola Hunnisett has a company called Paperplane in Sydney and does graphic facilitation. I believe she does some training as well. She's reachable at

Hi David,
Great post, I was at VizThink Berlin a few years back and saw your work there. I think you mentioned about a few architects who got into the field in the 80's who set up a consultancy.
I have your first book and look forward to the Visual Teams Book.

I am interested in training in Ireland & the UK - is there anyone you can recommend?


Are there any workshops in Asia ? (e.g. Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand , etc ?)

David L Jenkins

Dear David, My name is David Jenkins (and currently work as a teacher and performer of flamenco guitar) but years ago I I had the privilege and delight to study multi-party facilitation with Michael Doyle, David Strauss, Mary Gelinas and Peter Gibb whose process literacy skills and splendid teachings (including their use of Graphic facilitation techniques) I ultimately absorbed and incorporated into my practice as a commercial mediator who went on to mediate over 3 thousand multi-party disputes in 44 states, alas that's all in the past! I write you to inquire on behalf of a bilingual friend (Spanish/English) architect friend from Mexico City who is in a position to has receive a grant to come to the U.S. to learn graphic faciitation. Can you suggest with whom , where & when she might be able to receive this formal training...Incidently she has worked with me in Mexico as a commercial co-mediator in high-profile, complex, multi-party cases so I can attest to the high level of her emotional and process literacy...Many thanks in advance for any coousel you can offer,Cordially-David L. Jenkins
