Digital data and technology are everywhere. Big Data, Data Science, Machine Learning, Internet of Things… these are buzzwords of today’s world. Anyway, the question is how to present digital technology concept. In this post, we propose a few ideas how you can illustrate digital idea in an easy way by one picture.
Let’s face it – data is everywhere. No matter where you turn in business or in life, you’ll have to look at numbers and chase statistics to get anywhere. You’ve heard all the marketing buzzwords and seen all the fuss. You know it’s important, but how can you effectively talk about data science during presentations? Data mining. Data science. Predictive analysis. The internet is full of these things. It’s full of everything! Odds are that you’ve heard all of these terms. You might not necessarily know what each mean, but you have a few batches of figures you’re familiar and comfortable with. You don’t have a need to ask about […]
In Scrum, meetings are pretty crucial part of the whole project management process. An effective meeting can move you forward, ineffective are not only waste of time but can demotivate the whole team. And that can hurt the whole project. So it’s better to follow the meeting best practice hints. Check our slide show of Golden Rules of effective Scrum meetings. We visualized meeting rules for 5 types of Scrum meetings. Those rules were suggested by experienced Scrum practitioner and our Scrum contributor consultant Sebastian Schneider. The five meetings are Spring planning, Backlog Grooming, Retrospective meeting, Spring Review and most frequent Daily Scrum. Here is an example of recommended […]
Another example how explaining IT concepts can be easy and fun. I illustrated how cloud sharing and file storage in the cloud works. If you are presenting or teaching IT, check this Slideshare presentation. Get some ideas how you can do it yourself. I illustrated two cloud related concepts. One was about data synchronization – how files and other content is accessed by various mobile devices. See the simple gradual illustration on the embedded Slideshare deck – uncovering elements step by step helps to explain. It’s better than throwing the whole schema to the reader at once. Step one: Uncovering next step: Another illustration shows difference between sending files via […]
Information Technology is one of the areas full of complex processes and devices. Good old visualization comes for help also here :). Having a step-by-step presentation can make wonders in explaining IT quote fun. See an example of illustrating IT network security and how the firewall works. Explaining IT can be quite a challenge. Despite I have a background in computer science I am often lost myself when facing all those new technologies and architectures. When I discuss various IT concepts, I usually do a drawing of a simple diagram sketches in my notebook. It really helps. Moving it into PowerPoint form is also easy. And to make it look […]
Are you managing a project in IT, automotive or other similar domains? If you do, you know that presenting such complex topics can be a challenge. One of the popular approaches to flexible – agile project management is Scrum methodology. The Scrum is represented by one main process flowchart diagram. Due to that, I fell in love with it on the first sight :), you know I am a fan of diagrams. Thanks to this simple visualization, you can see what’s the Scrum process about on the first look. You see two loops there and you know it’s about iterations. However, the full Scrum approach still can be a pretty formal […]
Today I want to share a nice example how a rather technical topic can be illustrated by simple diagram.
Recently I created simple diagram illustration for an interesting article. It was about a customer centric projects approach in project management.
Recently I was designing slides on topic of Big Data Concepts (it’s my other area of interest, after visualizations).
