How to visualize product lifecycle management

Product lifecycle management story

If your work requires explaining complicated subjects to people that have to understand, then visuals are a great tool. As a goal this year, I’ll post a new visual business story on a monthly basis. For those of you that follow my blog (hello out there?) there will be something to look forward to regularly!

It is interesting to watch the evolution of a visual explanation from the initial conversations I had with clients through their final illustration. Rather than get hung up on the precise description of what we discussed, I will share the sketches created and let them convey the message.

About two months after the first sketch, further refinements are evident
