What's it about?
Graphic Gameplan is an approach that helps to clarify the steps to be taken and in which order for any given project or activity. Considering projects, tasks and timeframes, it assists the users to come up with a plan that is actionable. Many projects can benefit from this approach, which helps to provide increased structure to project planning activities. This approach is used to identify the tasks that must be completed and in what order for the project to be completed on time.
The Graphic Gameplan is created through brainstorming. The approach that is taken helps with breaking down the project or projects into more achievable blocks of work. Working in this way all of the required activities to complete the project are more likely to be identified, and consequently achieved. The debate that occurs during the creation of the Graphic Gameplan helps to determine the exact order of the tasks to achieve success, and to better identify dependencies.
While it is often carried out as a group brainstorming activity, it can also be performed by one project manager, to organize their thoughts on a project.
