In "The Power Of Visual Thinking?" I shared a great visual tool that had been created by EMC Global Services -- a somewhat humorous storymap showing how IT organizations transformed from silos to service providers.
That PDF has proven to be amazingly popular: both in the context of a consulting workshop, but more broadly as a tool for IT leaders to share with their teams -- helping to put all the ideas and concepts into a digestible context.
Well, our EMC Global Services team is at it again. They've created another powerful storymap, this time around how organizations learn to be proficient at big data analytics. I'm sure it will be at least as popular once it gets around.
Either way, I see this as a very useful tool in the arsenal. Thanks to Bill Schmarzo, Mark A. Lawson and Glenn Steinhandler for their great work, and for sharing with us all!
