than you initially thought possible!Magnifying Glass

Mind Mapping, with someone knowledgeable about the theory and skilled with available software, will uncover more ideas and solutions to opportunities and challenges than any other method – Guaranteed!

This recently happened when Mind Mapping with a client on his new Financial Services business.

We started with a Mind Map of the four main products he offers his clients.  The next step was to map each of those products.  As we added graphics to the products, more and more things my client could offer came to mind.  The map grew and grew and we linked it to additional Mind Maps for more clarity.

We wound up with four additional maps linked to the original.

He’ll use these maps as templates in his work.

Bottom Line: He’ll do a better job for clients by visually showing ideas and solutions to their individual  and family needs.

Outline vs. Mind Map

Outline vs. Mind Map
Question: What’s wrong with just doing an outline when working on a project?

Answer: The problem with outlines is that you’re trying to organize thoughts before you develop them.

Our brains don’t think that way.

Test this:
Take a piece of paper and write ‘Project’ at the top.

You pick the project – anything that requires thought and planning.

Examples: Trip, remodel, new product or way to distribute, marketing plan, etc.

Do this as you were taught in school; i.e. Roman Numbers, Capital Letters, Numbers, etc. (I, A, 1. a)

The odds are, that when you get somewhere around III c, you realize that item should be II b (or something like that).

Here, as stated above, we don’t think in linear fashion.

The beauty of Mind Mapping is that we map our main topic (project in this case) then radiating from the center, place all the things that need to be included in this project.

Those topics will have sub-topics, and they can start being mapped at this time.

Adding pictures, symbols and colors to the Mind Map will increase the ideas and solutions.

Only after you’ve put down as many topics and sub-topics as you can think of (and there willbe more!), do you go back and review, edit and prioritize your Mind Mapped project.

One of the nice features of most Mind Mapping software is that you can push a button and convert your map into a diagram (if that’s the way you prefer to use it.)

Some even let you export to Word where you can have the Mind Map and the outline.

Discover New Opportunities.
Manage and Eliminate Threats.

SWOT Analysis is a powerful technique for understanding your Strengths and Weaknesses, and for looking at the Opportunities and Threats you face.

SWOT

I use a Mind Mapping to achieve the maximum results.

What makes SWOT particularly powerful is that, with a little thought, it can help you uncover opportunities that you are well placed to exploit. And by understanding the weaknesses of your business, you can manage and eliminate threats that would otherwise catch you unawares.

More than this, by looking at yourself and your competitors using the SWOT framework, you can start to craft a strategy that helps you distinguish yourself from your competitors, so that you can compete successfully in your market.

Strategic Planning

Posted by: | Comments (0)


Make a plan and follow it.

One great thing about Mind Mapping a Strategic Plan is that everyone can see the ‘Big Picture’.

All components of the plan can see where each department fits into it and all the relationships.

Each of these components can, and should have, their own Mind Map.

It can also easily be, as should any plan, adjusted for market and other conditions that constantly change.
