Getting started with visual facilitation

Authored by Nina Gritzke

One of my favourite training courses that I attended whilst working as a consultant at Elabor8, was a visual facilitation course where I was introduced to the bikablo® visual facilitation technique and neuland® visual facilitation pens.

The course was very practical and I was able to apply my new skills to my work immediately after the training. Visual facilitation instantly brought more creativity, fun, and engagement to my work day, and now it’s impossible for me to go back to text-only facilitation.

One motto of visual facilitation techniques is “everyone can draw”. I agree, with just a few tips, templates, and training, anyone can pick it up very quickly.

With this visual article I’d like to inspire you to start facilitating visually, and to give you essential tips to send your visual facilitation off to a good start. Have fun! And start drawing!

    I would like to know when is the next bikablo training available for sign up?

    I am a new product owner and I believe that visual facilitation will help me in my role when I engage with various stakeholders to populate the product backlog.
