Mind map doesn’t limit your creativity or thought processes
A Mind map is a brainstorming tool that helps you to take notes and explore and visualize ideas. It starts with a central idea, topic, theme, or event, with lots of other ideas and topics branching off it. The result is a map of your ideas and how they are connected to each other, allowing you to get everything out of your head and transfer it onto your computer screen.
Why are mind maps necessary for your work?
When creating a mind map, you can jot down notes and ideas as they come to you. You don’t have to hold ideas or think in a certain order, as you might do when making lists, for example. Mind maps work in the same way that our brains think. So, you can create a new branch for a new idea, add additional detail to a branch, and draw connections between different branches. It doesn’t matter what order you do these things in, so it doesn’t matter if you forget something – you can just add it in if you think of it later.
A mind map starts with the general topic or project at hand at the center, and then becomes more specific and detailed the more it branches out. The last branch of the mind map contains individual tasks. These tasks are transferred to other workspace tools from your mind map so you can keep working with them.
TIP #1: In LogicalPlan, you can work with accurate task date later
Unsure of how your project will run over time? In Timeline tool there is a column called BACKLOG. All the tasks from Mind map tool without the exact date of elaboration are automatically transferred to the BACKLOG. In Timeline tool you can then transfer the tasks to a timeline – quickly and easily with drag and drop. See how it works in practice! You can find more about BACKLOG in the article about the Timeline tool.
