What is a Mind Map?
Mind maps are a popular method for idea management or brainstorming sessions. The main node represents an idea, a concept or a project, and is located in the center of the mind map. All around it various branches, nodes and sub-nodes are created. That’s why mind mapping is such an easy method to structure ideas. But the advantage of mind maps goes even beyond that, as you can also visualize the hierarchy between tasks and also their dependency on each other.
Task-based Mind Mapping
Task-based mind mapping means that you create your mind map in a specific way. Thereby the nodes of the mind map correspond with the tasks of a project. Afterwards it’s easy to start your project planning based on the identified tasks. This approach is also called bottom-up planning.
