I'm a software development coach based in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I'm also the founder of a small consultancy (6 people) that specialises in assisting companies and development teams to understand and create better software, using Agile and Lean principles and concepts such as software craftsmanship etc.
I've learned the power of visualisation over the past few years, at both a personal and team level. Most recently I realised that by asking my accountant to draw pictures I finally understood what she has been going on about all this time :D
As our company (Driven Software) grows (3 people in the last 3 months, targeting a size of ±10), I am trying to practice what we preach and build the company around the same values that we teach our clients. With this in mind we have a strategy day coming up where we would like each person in the company to present something on their personal goals, their vision of the company and where they see things going from here.
I've created an A3 page (attached) that I plan to print out and give to each person with a pack of crayons/coloured pencils for them to fill out and present back to the group on the day.
I would appreciate any feedback on the layout/ideas - I think this ties in nicely with what this group has been formed around, unless I am missing something?
Essentially the problem is how do you use visualisation to develop company strategy.
