Stuart Young

I am a professional Business Visualiser with extensive traditional/ Agile Project management experience and a deep-rooted appreciation for Design Thinking and Agile Principles/ Methodologies.

Over time I have become accustomed to Agile and Design Thinking ways of working, becoming a Certified Scrum Practitioner, DSDM Agile Analyst, Lean, Kanban Practitioner and SPC4 consultant.

With international notoriety within the Agile Community and beyond I have provided business visualisation at multiple Global events. By creating a visual information radiator I translate concepts and processes into engaging visuals with the intention of simplifying complexity and accelerating learning.

I contribute to team and organisational visioning and planning events by offering captivating visuals that crystallise ideas, cultivate learning and drive innovation. Key insights can then be transformed into illustrated storyboards to enable organisations to visualise the work, explore business/ product possibilities and align people with the business direction.

I facilitate a suite of Design and Innovation courses/ labs that catalyse customer centric creativity and innovation, harbouring Design Thinking/ Service Design practices and supporting individuals in gaining the confidence to visualise and innovate effectively. The newly gained skills assist teams to solve problems and map ideas with the use of Design Thinking tools and visualisation techniques.

I joined Radtac in 2015 where I continue to assist individuals, teams and organisations with an array of Innovation and visualisation services.

Wednesday 13th March 2019 10:45 - Visual Storytelling is the secret sauce

Agility alone will not lead your organisation to success or encourage people to embrace change! Poor communication is a leading contributor to project and product failure so let’s start with the simple stuff.
Visual storytelling is an essential tool for inspiring stakeholders, enhancing communication and gaining a greater understanding of user needs. Research shows that 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual so isn’t it time you opted for a simpler and quicker way to tell a compelling business story in a way that will stick?
During this talk I will give examples of how visualisation techniques such as storyboarding can play a significant role in accelerating learning, solving problems and generating ideas at scale. I will explore the use of visual storytelling within the context of Agile and Human Centred Design.
