It is easy enough to do individually but MindManager’s power is in quickly assembling maps from individuals.
Here is a suggested process:
Plan: Let individuals brainstorm first. Then combine into a group map for a further session of group brainstorming.
Group members creat their brainstorm map around the question, theme etc.
- Ask users to add their name as a resource to all topics on their map:
- Select All (Ctrl-A) > Task Info > Resource name (Tip: make sure they have unique name. First and surname is easy, if a little formal)
Combine the Maps
- Link individual maps to a central map. Then 0pen Mulitmap view > Select All > Combine All.
- Right click main topics and map name topic > Remove Topic.
- View > Show/Hide > Task info for anonymous session.
Start Brainstorming again either in an open session using a beamer.
Or give the combined map back to the participants and reiterate, recombine and then go to an open session. This will produce many duplicates on the combined map.
- Show Task info if further information is required from the topic owner.
Do you have an alternate or an improvement to this process?
