The result is efficient creation of a concise and effective message.
It has been said that today’s world is drowning in information and starving for wisdom. There is a system for making sense of all this information, and it has undergone refinement for 2,500 years—rhetoric. Rhetoric is the art of using language effectively. The rules of rhetoric are not arbitrary; they mirror the way the mind works. Plato and Aristotle did not invent these rules. Rather, they discovered the information structures that our minds use to make sense of the world. Based on this time-proven rhetoric, Walter Lowney developed a practical and effective method for both persuasive and informative communication.
We look for patterns to make sense of information. The methods and pace of communication may change, but the structure of ideas required for effective communication is timeless. Structure creates meaning. The OptiCo idea structure uses a simple visual model to guide critical thinking and development of a clear central message supported by detailed evidence.
