Use mind mapping to get a better overview and save time

 

Do you still struggle with information overload?

The information age causes an overload of media that reach us daily. Everyday we have to make decisions based on using that info. As Clay Shirky says: “It is not information overload, it is filter failure!” Tony Buzan (the originator of mind mapping) developed a note taking, memory and reading technique based upon how the brain functions. Two important drivers are: association and imagination. This organic and radiant way of structuring information uses hierarchy (main and subtopics along branches), colors, images, icons, relationships and links to sources. Information is noted in main and subtopics which makes it possible to filter.

You can apply mind mapping for personal effectivity such as an overview of goals, projects and tasks. Use mind mapping to organize information to make an article, rapport, presentation, business case or or study. Boost your facilitation skills by applying mind mapping in your next meeting, strategy or brainstorm session. Harvest information of live events and boost engagement.

Mind Mapping examples

Inspiration of mind maps I have created. Some are facilitations at events (talks), brainstorm sessions.
