In my previous posting Philippe Boukobza shared an idea map summarizing the contents of my Idea Mapping book. Today’s map is also from Philippe and details chapter 9 of my book which covers the “Team Idea Mapping Method”. I have used this process successfully with many clients. It helps to gather a multitude of ideas from every participant, keeps a dominant person from taking over the direction of the meeting, fosters shared understanding, give the group a “picture” of their ideas, is more effective than standard brain storming, and no idea gets left behind.
