According to molecular biologist, Dr. John Medina, there are more neurons in the human brain dedicated to vision than the other four senses (touch, smell, hearing, and taste) combined. Most humans think visually. Visual thinking is the act of visualizing a thought process. In project management practices it is encouraged for this to be a facilitated group-based activity. Visual thinking tools help in guiding the idea-development process and discussion among project team members. We will highlight some visual thinking tools then open the session for a broader discussion of current work. 

Each project management open office hour will provide a short overview of a specific concept, method, skill, or technique that can be applied to a variety of projects followed by time for an interactive discussion of current work. These open office hours are designed to be a space for learning opportunities, community discussion, and sharing of ideas and practices in how to manage any library project. You can join at any time during the hour, but registration is required. 

Minitex Conversations are an opportunity to meet with Minitex staff on an informal basis to ask questions, learn more about a particular topic, and connect with others.
