    Memo to guest speakers: organise your thinking

    Yes, three cheers for a call to conference presenters to have a go at engaging the audience (participants!) and delivering their thinking without the use of PowerPoint.

    On Twitter today, I happily retweeted  and  when this was put out there, with a reference to agile conferences:

    RT @neil_killick I call on #agile conferences to ban PowerPoint and equivalent. Let's see presenters really present and lead discussion.

    Here's the next challenge then - given the Agile Australia conference is set for June, the sold out Scrum conference is next week, and the UX and LAST conferences are also bearing down in August, every speaker has the time to organise their thinking. 

    Start now speakers! Get your thinking sorted out now! 

    I believe visual agility skills are what's needed - visual skills where you can swiftly and clearly:

     

    1. capture your thinking
    2. convey information, and
    3. collaborate with others

     

    ... using visuals.

    What happens is that PowerPoint gets used to capture thinking. And then it's the tool that's used to convey information. (Not as good at collaboration is it?)

    A great communicator, leader and conference speaker/presenter can use all three: 

     

    1. Capture your own thinking about what your presentation and key message is;
    2. Convey information during the presentation; and
    3. Collaborate - get input from others in the session, engage and lead discussion. 

     

    It's not for artistic types or creative folks; it's for normal people and thinking people whose job it is to think, communicate and work well with others. 

    I'll be watching next week at the Scrum conference; and I'll be capturing using visuals on my ipad.

    I so hope a session I've proposed for the Agile Australia conference gets up; no surprise it's on visual agility - I want to help Agile folks get more visual so they can help people in their teams - and right across the businesses they work with and in - to "get" what they're on about quickly, clearly, and in an engaging and captivating way.

    The sooner you're understood, the sooner we can all get on with it.

    Reflect, Tune, Adjust - that's Agile

    Several colleagues in my network are releasing manifestos - a declaration of their intentions or views or the philosophies behind their thinking and their business. 

    Some of them are lists of statements, others are beautifully designed slides or photo images perfect for Pinterest!

    My favourite manifesto is the Agile Manifesto and for those who work in the project or software development world, this may be well known to you. But for those who aren't living in project-land, Agile still has so much to offer.

    Here's why...

     

    • Reflect, tune and adjust
    • Build projects around motivated individuals
    • Changing requirements are welcome
    • Early and continuous delivery...

     

    These are the hallmarks of an innovative team, a capable leader and a collaborative group of folks who are open to what's going on. No matter what field you're in or what you're working on, whether it's your own business ideas, a new project or piece of work or a whole new career, adopting just some of the agile principles from the manifesto can give you a new take on some of your old, tired practices. 

    The key points of the manifesto are visualised here

    Look, think, let it marinate... how might you bring some of this agility to your current ways of working, thinking, collaborating and creating?

    Make those comms cut through



    It's summer time on the southern part of the globe here in Melbourne, Australia. Living by Port Phillip Bay and Station Pier we see the shiny white cruise ships coming and going. People heading off on the cruise of a lifetime.

    I imagine there are blue and white striped deck chairs on the top deck, with passengers snoozing and dozing enjoying the sea breezes and blue skies.

    Look around your office or workplace and you'll see team members on their 'desk chairs' enjoying the air conditioning, the internet, and if lucky, a view out a window. Hopefully they're not snoozing and dozing but they certainly aren't sitting there, highly alert, waiting on your message or communication. Sorry, you're not the captain saying 'abandon ship' nor the activities officer announcing Happy Hour has started!

    When you launch a communication effort - for a project, a piece of work or a new service or idea - your audiences are ..... snoozing. They're 'latent' or dormant. And before they'll take in any of your communication, you'll need to wake them up so they're 'aware'. Once they're aware, you'll be able to guide them towards being 'active' and engaged.

    1. Latent.
    2. Aware.
    3. Active.

    It's a three step process and failing to take it into account is one of the 9 reasons why project communications don't cut through - my new project whitepaper on the just launched project engagepage of my website. 

    With a new calendar year and many new plans and projects getting underway, think ahead and make sure you've got some phases of communication that wake up dozing team members, stakeholders, sponsors and target audiences.

    That way they'll be all primed and ready to receive that stunning cocktail of communication you've been creating behind the bar!
