Sketching helps you to communicate abstract ideas and transform them into tangible artifacts that can be further explored and validated. With their low fidelity, sketches provide room for interpretation and invite discussion. Sketches also are a starting point for iteration.
Many companies, such as Google, have come to recognize sketching as a powerful communication tool that can be used not only within a team, but also when collaborating with customers.
