    • Abstract:
      • Drawing can be used to advance a personalized learning approach in accounting. • Visualization triggers a sensemaking process responding to previous understandings. • Seeing one's managerial area of responsibility through financial logic is essential. • Drawing offers a novel approach and counterweight to language in management research. This paper reports on a teaching innovation using participant-generated drawings. Experienced managers were asked to produce a drawing to illustrate their work from an accounting perspective. The drawings were then used to make the managerial context of the participants the explicit starting point for personalized executive learning. This study is the first in the sphere of accounting education and research to take drawing seriously as a learning method. The results of the experiment show how drawing can be further used as a tool in management education by facilitating the visualization of the managerial contexts participants work within.
