Nobody reads anymore. They scan.
If people scan and if pictures (business process visuals) are worth at least a few hundred words, why don’t we use pictures more to communicate with others?
My bet is that when someone scans a process visual they slow-down enough to read (probably because there’s a few hundred words to absorb)…
For example, imagine a one-inch square drawn on a piece of blank, white paper labeled “current organization” with a line a few inches long exteneding across the paper with an arrow at the other end pointing to a two-inch octagon labeled “future organization.”
Does this description of a business process visual create curiosity?
I submit the idea to you to include a business process visual in your written communication if it is important that others read it.
Ironically, as soon as I have one of my team members figure out how to fix the translation of images inserted into my blog posts in Google Blogger to the http://www.cimastrategic.com/ homepage, you will see more business process visuals to think about and use for your own purposes if you like.
