Mind Map Exercise

UPDATE: A friend commented that this presentation needed more information... He hadn't read the speaker's notes. Please click the tab "notes" next to the "comments" tab... the notes appear on slide 5 forward.

The first few slides are just bullet points mostly... there's a reason for that. Slide 5 starts to pick up the pace. This is a short primer on how to mind map and why they can be so effective. I've given this presentation to CEO Peer Groups and it is always successful with lots of questions and interaction. As a normal course I use Mind Maps to solve problems and build strategies for the Market Development work that I consult on for clients. If you like the presentation, will you "tweet" it for me?

Mind Map Exercise

  1. 1. Mind Map Exercise
  2. 2. What are Mind Maps?• A mind map is a way to visually organize notes, thoughts, ideas, and conversations.• Tony Buzan has largely tried to take credit for inventing modern mind mapping. (he’s a British psychologist)• In reality different forms of mind mapping have been used over many centuries – Buzan really just popularized it and offered some theories around why they work so well to capture thoughts and are compatible with the thought process.• A Mind Map is created around a single word or text, placed in the center, to which associated ideas, words and concepts are added.• Mind Maps have many uses including business situations where you could use Mind Maps to document conversations, general note taking, brainstorming, or to parse out a strategy or a particularly complicated situation you may face.• In business mind maps are most frequently used collaboratively – but it is possible to use mind mapping on your own, as an individual.
  3. 3. Mind Map Uses• You can use a Mind Map for: – Problem solving/decision making – Strategy development – Outline a proposal – Create a timeline – Defining roles at an organization – Collaboration technique – Expression of creativity – Condensing your thoughts onto one page – As a SWOT analysis – Create a framework – Put visuals and text together – Develop keyword phrases
  4. 4. Mind Map GuidelinesIn his books on Mind Maps author Tony Buzan suggests using the following guidelines forcreating Mind Maps:• Start in the center with an image of the topic, using at least 3 colors.• Use images, symbols, codes, and dimensions throughout your Mind Map.• Select key words and print using upper or lower case letters.• Each word/image is best alone and sitting on its own line.• The lines should be connected, starting from the central image. The central lines are thicker, organic and thinner as they radiate out from the centre.• Make the lines the same length as the word/image they support.• Use multiple colors throughout the Mind Map, for visual stimulation and also to encode or group.• Develop your own personal style of Mind Mapping.• Use emphasis and show associations in your Mind Map.• Keep the Mind Map clear by using radial hierarchy, numerical order or outlines to embrace your branches.

  8. 8. To Use Mind Mapping Effectively… Screen Shot from RSA Animate - Changing Education Paradigms http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDZFcDGpL4UYou will have to break free of the standards based paradigm ofeducation. We have been conditioned not to think in a way compatiblewith the brain, but compatible with high test scores.
