Change often starts with awareness and aspirations. This institutional human resources department was deeply engaged in visualizing their path forward. Working in a room full of this kind of energy is one my favorite parts of being a Visual Practitioner.
While there is not one answer to this question, here are a few things to consider when deciding where to place the Graphic Recorder:
Apologies for the poor video quality. The video is a timelapse of a full day event with faculty from an elementary school. As part of their team building day, we created a 10 year timeline (Journey Map, or Heritage Wall) of their school. The educators worked in teams briefly in the morning to review their institutional history and post stickies, which I categorized with their input. After a review of the finer details with workshop leaders, the drawing began. The staff moved to other activities for the day, and we came together to wrap up the day with a review and appreciation of their Heritage Wall. This type of activity reinforces milestones and serves as a powerful on-boarding activity for newer staff. The artwork is now hung in the school to celebrate their upcoming anniversary.
