Here at the Next Big Design blog, we're already looking forward to April when we will once again be heading to the FUSE conference. From now until April 18th, we're bringing back our popular feature from 2011: #FUSEFactFriday
Fuse Fact Friday will highlight some of the key takeaways from the 2011 conference, including inspirational quotes, main themes and more. Each week, we'll dive in to our 2011 executive summary and remember some of our favorite presentations and moments from last year. Today's FFF Fact is:
"It's not always about solving questions, sometimes it's about creating questions."
Sometimes Fuse can be funny, and that was the case with our keynote session from Author Doogie Horner last year. However he also offered some insights about design and problem solving through visualization. He suggested that building a flowchart can help one build a stronger relationship with information.
As posted on the Beardwood & Co. Hoot blog about the session:
"Words of wisdom from Doogie: 'You never realize how much you know about something until you make a flowchart about it. Just get started and you'll see the patterns emerge.'
Sometimes it takes that visualization to realize what it really is you are asking or solving.
