From banking to local government organizations, our clients have come to believe that Storyboarding is among the most powerful tools they have learned in their careers. Chapter 10 of The Disney Way is entitled, “Capture the Magic with Storyboards.”
Nearly a century ago, the Storyboard made it possible for Walt Disney to experiment, to move drawings around, to change direction, to insert something he thought was missing, or to discard a sequence that wasn’t working. Decades later, in the 1960’s, Disney expanded the Storyboarding technique from simply a story depiction to a visual technique for generating solutions to problems and enhancing communications.
Storyboarding takes a simple technique—visual display—and uses it in a unique way to help participants unleash their collective creative energy to produce ideas and solve problems.
Key Benefits of Storyboarding:
- High level of participation. No forced discussion. Everyone’s ideas are protected due to anonymity.
- Heightens concentration. Everyone is immersed in working on the topic, idea and/or problem at hand.
- More organized than the output from brainstorming, yet retains the flexibility that individuals and teams need as they work their way through the various stages of idea generation and/or problem solving. From three to six times more than the number of ideas generated by traditional brainstorming.
- Barriers between functional areas begin to crumble…everyone is working together for the common good of a team.
Creating a Customer-Centric Culture
– The Disney Way
This energizing and dynamic workshop experience brings to life the inside story of how the Disney success was achieved – not by sudden flashes of creative insight, but by the force of a much-considered and carefully wrought system for achieving “good show,” all through the eyes of customers or “guests.” Bill Capodagli shares leadership and teamwork lessons from Disney and organizations featured in The Disney Way 3rd edition, and provides a roadmap with specific actions to produce a customer-centric culture.
