“Typically, I speak about simplifying the project lifecycle using mind mapping technology and techniques. I spend about 15 minutes discussing the Mind Map theory and why it useful in a communication and planning. Afterwards, I actually show fundamental mind mapping techniques and how they are applied to the PMI Methodology. My presentation tends to be very interactive with the participants and educational based.”

Evolution of the Prehistoric Sticky Note

Tired of sticky notes and whiteboard sessions? Mind Mapping is used in requirements gathering sessions and the construction of the WBS. Mind mapping has traditionally been presented as a tool for planning and organization, an effective way to develop, organize, and present multiple facets of the project plan. Primarily used for the construction of the WBS, advanced uses of this technique also simplify the complex process of communicating the project plan. When Mind Mapping is coupled with technology it simplifies the process and enhances communication. During this presentation, I will explain the mind mapping theory and how that theory can be applied to BAs and PMs. I will also demonstrate best practice techniques in mind mapping and how it relates to technology. Participants will learn how to simplify the project life cycle and improve communication of a project plan.
