Idea Processing - Introduction
VIS-IT Techniques center around "idea processing". There are, we believe, six fundamental idea processing activities: capture ideas, arrange ideas, create ideas, evaluate ideas, connect ideas, and implement ideas. VIS-IT techniques consider each distinct idea as an "object" that can be introduced into many thinking environments.
All VIS-IT techniques process ideas using VIS-IT Tools, which provide mobile, colorful, easy-to-post surfaces on which ideas are represented by words or pictures.
Nineteen VIS-IT Techniques are introduced below in categories that mirror the six major idea processing activities. Click on a link below to open an Adobe pdf file, which describes and illustrates the technique.
