Over the past six months I’ve seen the word infographics coming up a lot in blog posts, articles and so on. Looking at the word combinations and the way it was used I had a clear idea of what the word infographics meant. According to Wikipedia, the definition of infographics is “Visual representations of information, data or knowledge.”
It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, so here is an infographic of how to generate great ideas, which is a combination of the steps from Graham Wallas and James Webb Young models. It’s a topic we have covered a few times so it should be familiar if you have been reading this blog for a while. The process to generate great ideas is a four-step process: Preparation, Incubation, Illumination, and Verification/Implementation.
What are some ways you can use infographics in your work to make complex ideas simpler to digest? How can you use this information? What do you have to add to the conversation?
