I released the first version of my IBIS notation editor to the Mac App Store today. Over the next weeks will I need to polish it and beautify the supporting material like screenshots, etc. But have a look here: https://kneupner.de/software/visual-thinking-ibis
So what is IBIS? I found this page as an introduction. The same author did one more blog on the topic. The author (Chris Tomich) did a good job. If you want to understand more, read the book from Paul Culmsee and Kailash Awati.
I disabled the comments for this blog post. Please comment on the software page.
I just published a new mind map in my Visual Thinking Library. The topic of the mind map is a book on coaching that I like.
I want to make you aware of this great blog entry that is named similar as this posting. The author (Tim Urban) goes a lot deeper than many other articles that I have seen on this topic. It is a homage to Elon Musk and his Tesla company, but you get a lot more out of it. Having known most of it I am still impressed. Well researched, nicely elaborated on the context, skilfully put together.
Why am I so impressed by this article? Because the article goes way beyond the usual superficial answers. It is the best application of the “5 Whys Model” that I have seen so far. The outset of the article is about the Tesla car company. But to provide the full understanding of the material the author goes back to evolution.
The authors blog is worth looking at.
I already posted this video earlier as an example course in leadership. But now I found a second interpretation around consumer adoption.
Some background to this version: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technology_adoption_lifecycle (Moore’s Chasm version is an adoption of Rogers’s version)
Which version do you like better? And now we need to think, is the guy with the green shirt the first follower or the first customer? If he is the first customer then what did he buy? Or is there no real difference between first follower or first customer.
Did you find a 3rd interpretation?
Please let me know…
