Our friends at Rosenfeld Media describe Dave Gray as The Godfather of Visual Thinking.
Like his movie counterpart Don Vito Corleone, Dave has been deeply involved in some challenging change initiatives in industry, government, and small business. Astonished at people’s ability to miscommunicate and misunderstand one another, Dave spent years developing an arsenal of street-proven techniques for creating alignment. Unlike Don Corleone, Dave’s methods require only minor arm twisting, at most. Kneecaps remain untouched.
In 1993, Dave became founding father of XPLANE, the visual thinking company. His team of faithful advisors and expert facilitators help teams worldwide to make better, faster decisions, and work better together to create lasting, sustainable impact.
Dave has written four books on design, change, and innovation that are staples on the shelves of most UX teams: Liminal Thinking, Gamestorming, The Connected Company, and Selling to the VP of NO. According to rumours, HBO has begun production of an edgy and dramatic movie adaptation of Gamestorming set in post-war New York City.
Stay tuned for details of Dave’s session at Fluxible. In the meantime, follow him on Twitter and say ciao! (Cautiously and respectfully.)
