I have read on the website of FastCompany What projects are worth working on? As illustration there was a pretty lame (popplet) mindmap (although it is no mindmap in my definition).
Almost a year ago I made this one about how to pick a promising (profitable) project.
As you can see from the MyThoughts mindmap ‘How to pick a promising project’, I am inspired by books/theories like Blue-Ocean (Kim), the Black Swan (Nassim Nicholas Taleb) about how we are focussed on the information we know (and not on the information we do not know), the Canvas model (Alexander Osterwalder), etc.
As you can see the mindmap goes way beyond the Popplet (a semi mindmap app for the iPad) of Fast Company.
Sub areas of the mindmap (sub branches) can be mindmapped further. E.g. the header of this blog is a mindmap brainstorm to arrive at a new innovation that moves XRF to a uncontested blue-ocean market.
Mindmapping is also a strong technique to trace information you don’t know (read the Black Swan).
Furthermore using iMindmap you can first make a draft mindmap of your project and then consequently extract the project management plan.
