Zarya era sketches on a napkin

My belief in the amazing power of pictures is not naive. Three megatrends that are developing in the business world are pushing me to this: globalization, information overload, and the surprisingly rapidly increasing speed and range of communication.
If you linger on the topic of airlines already touched on today, then you should tell that not so long ago I read an amazing article about the next generation of Boeing 787 airliners, which are already being built around the world. It's hard for me to come up with the best illustration for total globalization. One of the most complex machines ever created by man is assembled, with an accuracy of one millionth of a centimeter, on thousands of assembly lines in several countries, by people speaking a good dozen languages. All this is possible only because the aircraft manufacturers mapped the whole (plans, processes, project), and then created on its basis countless pictures.
Perhaps we are not engaged and will not be engaged in the creation of huge airliners, the essence is different: we no longer know what native language the members of our project team will have. It is possible that tomorrow we will have to work with people who do not speak our language at all.
Global supply chains and expanding markets make the world more flat, information overload becomes the norm, and communication channels are improving. All this will only contribute to the growth of problems in business. The world has accumulated an incredible amount of data that exists in many forms and in many languages, and today more than ever need businessmen who are able to quickly make optimal decisions and convey the fruits of their thoughts to other people.

For us as businessmen, confidence in our visual abilities is extremely important - and the feeling of comfort caused by this. It is important for us to work on improving our ability to look at complex information, see the emergence of new and the development of existing trends, imagine new opportunities and clearly explain the essence of our discoveries to others. Very soon, these skills will become our main and most valuable asset.
Looking into the near future, I believe: we will understand how visual thinking will change the way we do business. The fact is that visual thinking:
Helps us make better decisions faster
I expect that over the next few years we will see how the bulk of business analysis is done using special graphic formats that allow you to manipulate a huge number of different indicators and visualize the most complex interactions and outcomes. Several companies are engaged in creating such tools (even taking Tableau and Business Objects), but even ordinary Excel has an incredible development potential, especially if you take into account the excellent capabilities for processing graphics that are present in the simplest computers.
Helps us communicate our decisions (and vision) in a more efficient way.
As more and more business people understand the power of pictures as a communication tool, more and more tools (both software and “physical”) will appear on the market to help create (alone and in teams) meaningful graphs, charts, time lines, maps , flowcharts, etc. The main question is to first understand what we want to show and what our audience wants to see, and only then start the engine.
Helps teams execute these decisions in a more efficient way.
Project managers have long been well aware of the power of the visual time line, which should help each project participant understand what and when he should do. The problem is that often only the managers themselves know how to interpret the graphics they create. And from the point of view of team members, these are some walls filled from top to bottom with incomprehensible hieroglyphs. Currently, several companies are working to create interactive tools with truly incredible features. These tools allow groups scattered around the world to get instant visual contact with the project and with each other, as well as track everything you need, and at the level of detail required at the moment.
Regardless of how we look at the world around us and where we are going, the pictures will mean more and more to us. And the starting point of our journey is the ability to see.

    In 410 AD Rome fell under the onslaught of the barbarians. This time is considered to be the beginning of the Middle Ages. In Europe, there was a stagnation of science and the decline of knowledge about the diversity of wildlife, including the causes of animal diseases.
