Improve your Brainstorming Sessions with a Mind Map

I haven’t used this tool yet but as creative-types, we often do a fair amount of brainstorming. I’m not claiming this is going to add value to your sessions but it may.

Not sure what a mind map is? Wikipedia defines it as:

An image-centered diagram that represents semantic or other connections between portions of information. By presenting these connections in a radial, non-linear graphical manner, it encourages a brainstorming approach to any given organizational task, eliminating the hurdle of initially establishing an intrinsically appropriate or relevant conceptual framework to work within.

Waa? I’m confused. Perhaps a pretty picture would help us understand better.

Mind Map

Anyway, a tool called MindMeister has launched allowing you to create digital mind maps. I suspect it is easier to create than the map above so throw those coloured pencils away! The tool has different levels of membership but the base is free.
