The Visualising IT 3-Day Training Course goals are for participants to have acquired a reasonable working knowledge and fundamental skills in the use of visualisations in describing, designing, managing and presenting Information Technology.
Our aim is for participants to know:
- How to draw visualisations to describe Information Technology
- How, where and when to use visualisations in conveying technology
- How to present and adapt visualisations to suit individual’s learning styles
- Who are the organization’s groups and what visualisations are best suited to that group
- What types of visualisations are best for describing different technology scenarios
- How to create sustainable techniques for managing visualisations
- How to develop their personal style to improve their ability to create visualisations
- How to guide group thinking, using visualisations as the key tool
- How to leverage the use of visualisations to target conversations that resolve problems and issues
- What are the correct tools for creating visualisations

Training Course Outline
Below you’ll find the outline to the three-day Visualising IT course.
Each day builds on the next. On the last day we role-play a scenario by creating visualisations, presenting and critiquing them.
This builds confidence and skills in creating and presenting visualisations.
