Rich Picturing: Conversation Mapping
Non editable automatic button
Conversation mapping is a technique developed by Bruce McKenzie and has been used globally for decades. People read and write, moving to various tables with unique challenges and “conversations” emerging at each table. They become investigative journalists to identify patterns, themes, and emergent new ideas. These are the first steps to tapping experiential knowledge.
