Five years ago I flippantly (apols) proposed an international no flip chart week. Chris Corrigan has just written an excellent explanation of why this would be a good thing. And perhaps for more than a week.

I especially resonate with his observations that power accretes around a flip chart and that it leads to very linear ways of thinking.

Can I just add that there’s a similar rant to be written about tables, especially big ones.

(Though I do have a secret liking for those flip-chart sized post-its – but I never have to pay for them.)
