)-- Scientific studies have shown that looking at pictures, drawings, and other graphics engage both sides of the brain--opening the "mind's eye" and business systems to new possibilities we might not otherwise see. Frustrated by lackluster approaches to strategy, companies are combining illustrations and color with business strategy with phenomenal success.
In this Soundview Live webinar, Transform Decisions with the Power of Visuals, Chris Chopyak will help you master the principles of "strategic illustration," a proven system for visualizing ideas. Chopyak provides a fresh new business model for developing specific "seeable" actions that can be measured, tracked, and cascaded into other priority areas.
