A mind map is a visual tool that breaks down a large topic into manageable pieces. The tool organizes ideas/concepts to help the user see relationships among all the pieces of information. Once all ideas are visualized, associations between ideas are more easily seen which allows prioritization.

Use When

  • Brainstorming and visualizing concepts
  • Presenting and communicating ideas
  • Outlining reports/documents
  • Organizing tasks and project management
  • Breaking down a complex topic
