Mind mapping is a great technique that helps organize information around a specific topic.
There are many ways to organize and plan out your thoughts for your next product idea, be it physical or digital.
Some prefer to incorporate lists, while others might prefer to use outlines all on whiteboards, paper, or computers. Doesn’t matter what your strategy is as long as it works for you.
However, one of the most effective methods I have learned to use for organizing my thoughts and ideas is the use of mind mapping on my computer.
Mind mapping is a great technique that helps organize information around a specific topic enabling better product productivity.
Additionally, when using a mind mapping program on a computer, collaboration can occur from anywhere when uploading to the cloud.
But What Exactly Is Mind Mapping
Mind mapping is a technique that assists in organizing your thoughts and plans around a specific idea.
Instead of just writing down your associated thoughts, with mind mapping you incorporate a visual approach.
The way it works is once you note your main idea or thought you then draw lines off the main idea or thought to the next associated idea.
You continue drawing additional lines off those thoughts and ideas until satisfied with the results.
While creating your mind map you are able to use different symbols, colors, fonts, or whatever you want to visually organize thoughts.
As you work you will develop a visually appealing map that demonstrates your thoughts, ideas, and plan to complete the project.
Any can now see how everything is linked together to make complete sense.
A clear picture presents itself as to how the task will be completed.
A Great Product
Part of developing a great digital or physical product is first discovering a need and then finding creative solutions to satisfy that need.
To satisfy the client, these solutions should be clear and understandable.
Mind mapping can be a tool to help you do exactly that. Visually you can organize your thoughts to help in the development process.
At that point, you will have a clear picture in your own head and should be able to develop your product easily.
According to James Spillane from business2community.com, “the brain processes images 60,000 times faster than it does text. And it’s more accustomed to processing images—ninety percent of the information sent to the brain is visual, and 93% of all human communication is visual.”
Factually speaking then, using mind mapping to visually organize your thoughts and ideas will hasten the entire process more effectively.
A Visual Technique
Mind mapping is a visual technique. It allows for easy collaboration when including others to help with your project or product creation.
As you are creating a mind map based on your next project on a computer using a program such as MindMup, you can easily upload the mind map to the cloud for others to access using another tool such as Dropbox.
Everyone involved in the development of the project can see the map as it takes form.
