You and your co-learners

This course is for anyone who wants to tackle complexity using simple visualization techniques to show the essence of a group conversation. Or for those who want to create clarity in their own or co-owned projects. To work practically with a big-picture mindset and show how things are connected, related, or hierarchically organized. Or for those who want to collaborate fast and efficiently - online - even if you are part of that knowledge-heavy and diverse team, who have never met face-to-face.


The diverse co-learner constellation of this course will spark creativity, innovation, and new perspectives.
