Mindmapping panel

introduction

moving from an area of personal to team productivity

the value of tacit knowledge has grown very much

retirement - the entire workforce will be considered too valuable to walk off the stage too soon

value of mapping and collaboration

lots of personal use

visualizing the big picture

being able to manage a larger number of R&D projects

collaborating in innovation

bringing together disparate groups

companies using for sales - co-creationg of content with customers

strategic planning

examples

US army

research to combat bird flu

SnapXT - ability to create a disposable application, generating websites with not technical knowledge at all

questions

people taking up when no one is pushing?

why be limited to the kind of mapping that can be done on paper and replicate it to computers?

panama has made it cosnstitutionally mandatory for children to learn? (Martin - to follow up with him for references)

what does it tkae of mm to become mainstream in business

constitutional mandate ? :D

people realize that they are able to unlock ideation

mindmapping is a situational applications, it's coming into organizations thorugh people who see if with others, user generated, it will happen naturally

children use it now and grow up with it

what are the other companies doing to go web 2.0

collaboration online

what MindManager does on the desktop can be done on the web

discovery of info on the web that pertains to this mindmap

switching between different types of visualization

mindmapping not so freeform as pure paper - much nicer - much closer to the philosophy

much more compelling tools come up - a lot to choose from

look at stuff like concept share; visual thinking

visual thesaurus

evangelizing

getting people to come into

putting value / content into the map, business practicality

context - form there into other parts of the organization

collaboration - process, now they use they same process for each new account

start using the map with customers as they are doing the sales discovery process; co-creationg between customer and sales people...

the customer gets the proposal in a map - they co-created it

cutting sales cycle a lot

why mindmapping on the net?

it seems like an obvious choice!

the team put up up the map of this panel on MindMeister

but it doesn't look like it is public... or is it?

co-creating

people are not usually in an office when they need to collaborate in creating

it is still important to also have a direct, voice conversation, instead of just typing away silently

very important at the start up - visualization can help bridge some language and cultural issues

SnapXT

taking a map and doing stuff with it

allowing people to take a map and generate collaborative websites

they were using MindManager as the front end

clients are using it in 2 ways:

virtual teams with completely custom projects, create project in a mindmap, generate a complete website of that from the click of a button

creating a body of knowledge, legal firm in real estate law, mapped out the legal information in this area, to get to the website content, they use a mindmap

bi-directional nature

bringing stuff back into a map and working on it there

the tool is good for its connectiveness to the next stage of collaboration

Intensil

the question of ROI for enterprise 2.0

going from ideation to something repeatable

the customers made them implement mindmapping as an input device

creating instant workflow from the output of a brainstorming session

in a non-threatening environemnt

you can always re-organize

mindmaps get people thinking in a process-oriented level

intuitively, people build maps that translate into flow very well

if you've been working on a list, inserting things feels threatening because you're disturbing a sequential order; not in a mindmap!

allowing a team to evolve their thinking as a team

normalizing mindmapping as a normal business application

re-arranging ideas is a very good way to get to the core of a theme

encouraging loose thinkging - they allow for possibilities in connections

concept mapping is something else

a reflection of language

non-hierarchical form, no main idea

if you give your mindmap to another person, he /she might not be able to do a lot with it

mindmaps are great for computers because of the semantic clarity, add a thought

new stuff

Everything is miscellaneous - Weinberger - everything can be a node

if everything is leaves, you can use a mindmap as a structure to pull the trees together

any leaf can be on any tree

in current mindmaps, there is always a central topic - anything should be able to be a central topic

the map is not the territory
