Diabetes Association of Greater ClevelandThis idea map sure looks different from the original one created by hand!

On January 28, 2011 I shared the story about how Siri Zimmerman and I used idea mapping to plan the content of a 2-hour session I will deliver for around 150 people at a conference in March sponsored by the Diabetes Association of Greater Cleveland. It was drawn by hand as we brainstormed.

In this case it was necessary to put the final version into MindManager and time each segment in order to stay on task during the workshop. In addition Siri needed to share the idea map with colleagues, so the clean version needed to be sent to her electronically. So attached you will find the final version I sent to her and you can compare it to the original. I’ll let you know how it worked for me after the conference.
