Pop quiz: You're on the way home from a conference. At the airport bar, you strike up a conversation with the person on the next stool. She asks, "What you do?" You say, "I manage Enterprise Architecture Projects for mission-critical business applications with an emphasis on Services Oriented Architectures." She smiles politely and says, "You broke your what?"

Let's face it: describing the complexity of today's working world is hard... unless we use pictures. In this session, Dan Roam demonstrates step-by-step how anyone -- regardless of artistic talent or training -- can use simple pictures to describe what we do, explain complex concepts, solve fuzzy problems, and sell others on breakthrough ideas.
