Mind map

Mind Mapping is an important tool to be used immediately after the thought shower stage has generated all of the thoughts and ideas.

Although the term "mind map" was first popularised by British psychology author and television personality Tony Buzan, the use of diagrams that visually "map" information using branching and maps traces back centuries.

This tool can help to group or collate these ideas into an organised, workable format and can be used in combination with trending or to categorise the output.

Mind Mapping is particularly useful after a brain writing session on cards or Post-it notes.
