Interview on Research on Value of Visual Practice


130418 Rock the Monkey with Heidi Forbes Oste from Alphachimp Studio Inc. on Vimeo.

Thanks to Peter Durand at AlphaChimp Studios for a great opportunity to share my research with the visual practice community. The  video (click on image to right) shows the visual recording he did while we spoke as well as being able to hear the interview. He breaks it down into sections in his blogpost, if you only want to hear specific parts.:

I am glad to know that the research has been helpful so far to the community of practitioners. I hope it will help grow the field and the adoption of these practices in formal meetings and events. I am happy to share my research and further thoughts on the practice at events and meetings. If you have any research or materials that provide evidence, please share them.  Together, we can strengthen the argument. Education will lead the visual practice from a “nice to have” to “must have” in the first stage of planning.

Flattr this!

Research on the Value of Visual Practice

In the midst of my state of buried in books, research, work and (well) life, I was asked by a colleague where the link to my research on the value of visual practice could be accessed.  The data was posted, but my process and finding were written up and I have posted the pdf here to share.  It is a bit narrative on my process as that was the purpose of the submission, but there are some interesting resources and data.

In the 6 months between when this was submitted and now, there have been several great books and articles that further strengthen the argument for the visual practice. Additional research, mentioned in this paper, but submitted to a conference awaiting publishing mentions other forms, software-based in particular, as a complementary method.

My research with the visual practice, focusing on how it supports leadership and global teams using social technologies, continues as piece of my dissertation. Stay tuned for more in this space for that. I will post bits and pieces that seem worth sharing during the journey.

Flattr this!
