Graphic Facilitation : Picturing your Big Ideas

How Visuals Help Collaboration- ImageThink at Ordev

We had great fun leading a workshop and presenting at the Ordev DEVELOPER CONFERENCE in Malmö, Sweden on how visuals aid communication.  Øredev  is the Premier developer’s conference in Europe focused on the whole software development process. Øredev means Quantity and Quality, bringing the best speakers on subjects such as Java, .Net, Project Management, Web development and Testing. We graphic record the topics developers are working with today as well as the ones you will be using tomorrow!

Below is a list of resources we would like to share with our audience.

We know that many of you have links and books that you refer to for increasing your team’s collaboration. Please feel free to leave a link in the comments box to share with others!
