Visual Planning: Storyboarding Techniques Pioneered by Walt Disney

Visual Planning

This highly interactive presentation on visual planning introduces the storyboarding technique of organizing and expanding our thought processes. Pioneered by Walt Disney, storyboarding is taught to Fortune 500 management as a thinking process that clarifies how we think, expands creativity and ensures a wide scope of possible solutions to complex business problems. Key topics covered are:

  • The Franklin process
  • Six thinking hats
  • Brainstorming
  • Business process models
  • Strategic thinking
  • Personal role planning

Value to Members: This process yields significant dividends in a member’s personal life. As part of this talk, members will create their own storyboards of the roles they play in their lives. They will present them to the group. The personal learning about roles, goals, organized thinking and personal change are enlightening, fun and lead to greater self-understanding. For some, the storyboarding process for thinking through problems, priorities, schedules and goals becomes a permanent part of their lives.
