About this course

Attention is the most valuable currency in today’s dynamic and fast business environment. How can you clearly communicate complex ideas and project plans? How can you generate interest and captivate your audience? The answer lies in „Visual Thinking“, a growing trend that originates from Silicon Valley and the Stanford D-School: practitioners as well as researchers have realised that the more complex, dynamic and electronic the business environment becomes, the more important it is to be able to master such complexity via visualisation in meetings, presentations and discussions.

This is the first public online course offered by the top-tier business school, the WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management. The Economist places WHU’s MBA programme at #6 in the world and the Financial Times calls it the #1 MBA and Masters in Management programme in Germany. The regular course is one of the highest student-rated courses in the WHU MBA programme. The course is taught by the award-winning Prof. Dr. Christoph Hienerth, the Chair of the Entrepreneurship and New Business Development at WHU.

By the end of this course, you will master two very important tools:

Elementary drawing skills

You will learn to create representative objects and artefacts as well as people and characters. This includes:

  • Revealing essential problems everyone faces in drawing and overcoming your fears
  • How to draw and visualise simple forms, people, perspective and the third dimension
  • Making drawing a daily habit and a simple routine

Visual presentation skills in the business setting

You will learn visual structuring methods so that you can transfer elementary drawing skills to the business environment and explain complex concepts with the common language of visualisation. This includes:

  • Visual thinking and communication techniques

  • Some psychological aspects of communication between the presenter and the audience
