How Visualisation helps navigate our complex environment

A session at Lean Agile Scotland 2015

Thursday 8th October, 2015

12:10pm to 12:40pm (GMT)

In knowledge work, many things are typically invisible or opaque, ranging from our process, the actual work items, to our models for making sense of these.

These are therefore open to assumption and misunderstanding, stemming partly from a variety of different perspectives.

At Spotify, we aim to build shared views and models to reduce unnecessary ambiguity and improve our understanding, allowing us to more effectively navigate in a Complex environment.

I’ll share some examples of how Spotify is using Visual techniques in creating clarity, to learn and respond faster.
