Measuring the Value of the Visual Practice, beyond Anecdotal Data

Thanks to the International Forum for Visual Practitioners for another inspiring event. We had a dynamic and exciting dialog about data and the importance of validating the field through a combination of quantitative and qualitative data on results. I must admit, I never thought I would be promoting number crunching, but it was highly satisfying to see the positive numbers to confirm what we believe to be true. As many found the lexicon from my report to be a helpful guide, I am placing it here for quick reference. Listening to the conversation and buzz of a field in fast growth, is exciting. I appreciate all of your support for the research and I hope you will continue to use the results and build on them. Enjoy!!

Interview on Research on Value of Visual Practice

RockTheMonkeyWebinar-Heidi-Forbes-Oste_1

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.: http://alphachimpu.com/rock-the-monkey-visual-practice-with-heidi-forbes-oste/

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.
