Portfolios exhibit a degree of complexity that easily exceeds the human ability to achieve optimal decisions through mere intuition. Making sense of this complexity involves a wise use of larger quantity of data. Visuals can help the analysis of more data through different perspectives. Yet, visuals can also aggravate the challenges involved in portfolio decisions. Inspired by Weick and Sufcliffe’s concept of mindfulness, we conducted an experiment with 204 participants to explore how to use visual mindfully in project portfolio context. The results suggest that use of purposeful and familiar visuals contributes to a more mindful engagement with visuals.
