New initiative! Skill lab conceptual visualisation

Visualizing your system sounds easy and is essential to explain it to stakeholders. However, it is challenging to get the right: context, scope, abstraction level, focus, topics. Learn to make visualizations of your system that are suitable for communication, understanding and decisions.

Goal of this skill lab

Focused practice on conceptual visualisation.


For who?

For everyone in the high-tech industry who wants to increase their skill level around basic architecting and designing. Next to that, you should have a concrete case where a technical challenge is part of the presentation/communication. You will pair with somebody in order to iterate and reflect. You can also come in pairs so that you can easily do this back at work.
