Visualize Your Business

Visualize Your Business

Reg at Elemental Truths has an interesting premise: turn your business into a “battlefield map.” The basic premise is that by converting logistics and details to a bunch of visual elements on a map, more meaning can be made from the results. Also, it’s an easier (faster?) way to consume a lot of status data visually.

When I was in the service I learned the importance of building a detailed map of the battlefield. This task was carried out to be as accurate and complete in every pains taking detail, as humanly possible. This is one instance in which the phrase military intelligence is not an oxymoron.

Reg continues with a list of ten ways the maps might prove helpful. He mentions even taking the analogy forward into using an actual map of your building, or the region, if your activities are confined to that area. See what you think.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
