MAPPING STRATEGIES
• A Strategy map is a strategic internal
communication tool in the form of a
diagram that is used to capture and
communicate how the strategic goals
are being pursued by an organization
in broad terms.
• The first diagrams of this type
appeared in the early 1990’s.

MIND MAPPING
• A mind map is a graphical way to
represent ideas and concepts.
• It is a visual thinking that helps
structuring information, helping us to
better analyze, comprehend,
synthesize, recall and generate new
ideas. Just as in every great idea, its
power lies in its simplicity.

• In a mind map, as opposed to
traditional note taking or a linear
text, information is structured in a
way that resembles much more
closely how our brain actually works.
• an activity that is both analytical and
artistic

What can we use mind maps for?





Note taking.
Brainstorming (individually or in groups).
Problem solving.
Studying and memorization.
Planning.
Researching and consolidating information from
multiple senses.
• Presenting information.
• Gaining insight on complex subjects.
• Jogging your creativity.

How to draw a mind map?
 
• Start in the middle of a blank page, writing or
drawing the idea we intend to develop.
• Develop the related subtopics around this central
topic, connecting each of them to the center with a
line.
• Repeat the same process for the subtopics,
generating lower-level subtopics as you see fit,
connecting each of those to the corresponding
subtopic.
• Use colours, drawings and symbols copiously
• Keep the topics labels as short as possible.
• Vary text size, colour and alignment.

A mind map enables one:

• To capture and develop “flashes” of insight
when they occur.
• To clear the mind of paradigms, thus providing
space for new creative thought.
• To explore all the creative possibilities of a given
subject.
• To encourage more consistent creative thinking.
• To create new conceptual frameworks within
which previous ideas can be reorganized.
• To plan creatively.
