Visual Learning, Part Three: Paradox


In commenting on modern society, 20th century author, G.K. Chesterton, wrote, “It isn’t that they can’t see the solution.  It is that they can’t see the problem.”  This paradox also inhibits organizational innovation and problem-solving.

However, visual business solutions enable leaders and employees to overcome this paradox by providing a quicker and greater understanding of complex business functions, processes and problems, better grasp of cross-organizational connections and dependencies, increased individual accountability and team collaboration.  The tools also provide stronger prioritization, more concise and relevant communication (which is now readily remembered), faster and more effective planning and execution efforts, more reliable decisions, and reduced waste.

Bottom line, visual business solutions convert complexity and ambiguity into clarity and action.
