It is easier to explain it with a comparison.Sprinters and marathoners are athletes. The first ones run 42 kilometers long and the second ones 100 meters long, but they could never switch competitions. They have completely different physical characteristics.The marathoner has to be light because he must carry the weight of his own body for 42 km. On the other hand the sprinter has to be all muscles because he needs a good balance between arms and legs from the start and throughout all the race.One is resistance, the other one is explosive power.What has this to do with the different types of
Graphic facilitation is Agile. Working Agile and graphic facilitation are processes about adaptability, speed and coordination.
Dave Wood's insight:
I'm re-scooping this because its such a good article from Sam Bradd. The same principles apply whether you're recording an event, group or individual sessions. "Because it’s my job as a visual facilitator to help groups be successful by valuing process over the visual product."
You can front end load the process through planning and preparation.
That creates the space for adaptability, speed and coordination. Its not about getting it perfect.
Draw on everything with celebrated visual artist Shantell Martin. This half-hour class takes you into her NYC studio to explore the projects that inspire her, the markers that move her, and creative prompts she's used with thousands of students to help everyone find their own personal creative voice. Watch her create a series of rapid-fire, stream-of-consciousness drawings, then draw your own "creative sprints"...
Every now and then, when I am scribing at a conference or event, I’ll hear a whisper behind me that goes something like this: “Wow, that’s really cool! Do you do this for a living?” Why yes, it is. And yes, I do.

These objections mentioned are so common
“It’s not the way we have worked in the past.”“In meetings, we need detailed notes, not just nice pictures.”And the killer: “We use a lot of PowerPoint instead.”
This article resonated with me because of a recent experience.
I taught a group of colleagues basic visual facilitation skills about 18 months ago. It was enthusiastically received and some went on to apply the skills in low key ways. Text based notes and bullet point powerpoint presentations were still the norm.
Couple of days ago I saw one of that group and she was excited to share how she had graphically recorded a planning session for a major change initiative the organization is working through. The chart was now on the wall of the project team and she couldn't be more proud. Especially the degree of engagement it generated. Great feeling to go down with her to see it share her excitement.
18 months in the gestation but well worth the wait......
