Whether your team is enmeshed in ideation, strategy development, or action planning, you’ll be more productive if you can clarify and maintain focus on the Big Picture—the driving purpose and “why” of the work. Unfortunately, too few leaders can sustain the collective clarity on the big context that shapes the team’s priorities.
At ActionCraft Company, we help change-makers create a unified Big Picture and use it strategically to expand their impact. Session after session, we provide colorful, spunky drawings of the essential themes and the implications for generating lasting impact.
We are grateful to our steadfast client partners. In their honor, we are delighted to share a Big Picture Scrapbook loosely organized around a few common leadership themes. When you need to re-imagine and energize the meetings that matter, reach out to [email protected].
Big Picture Reel
Celebrate your roots to help you tackle a big audacious goal
Ken Hubbell created live vision drawings for Arkansas’ Kingsland Heritage Center, focusing on Johnny Cash’s roots in rural Arkansas and his lasting contributions to American culture. Cash kept returning home to celebrate with friends and family and to share his songs at nearly fifty live Arkansas performances: these stories create the Big Picture for the Center’s interpretive mission.
Developing innovative products feels like a roller coaster ride without a visual map
Ken created live visual story maps capturing the Big Picture of no-code tech start-up LeapXL. Leap’s themes of centering design at the core of continuous strategic innovation creates a sustainable framework during the roller coaster process of product development.
A conceptual Roadmap improves your ability to adapt
Ken illustrated an emerging adaptive cycle to help leaders at Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation forge a collective Big Picture of the strategic space the team was navigating.
A true Big Picture is shaped by multiple, diverse perspectives
The Big Picture for The Fresno DRIVE Initiative is centered by inclusive prosperity. Ken helped ideate visual stories for this 10-year investment plan to develop an inclusive, engaged, vibrant, and sustainable economy for residents in the greater Fresno region. We partnered with Dr. Elvis Fraser at Sankofa Consulting.
A leader’s journey is more understandable when you realize the Big Picture
Ken illustrated several leadership convenings during the year, helping change agents unfold the big picture through individual stories of possibility. These were developed with Gary Hubbell Consulting for Conversation 2022.
