Number of Idea Mapping Participants 7-2014I crossed the 23,000 mark! As of this moment I have trained 23,162 individuals in Idea Mapping. This new record was set as a result of last week’s 392 participants in the Idea Mapping DDM Leadership Series at NIH.

In this graphic you can see that from 1992 thru 2001 I trained nearly 12,000 people. That’s where this graph starts. “2” represents 2002, “3” represents 2003, etc. and these numbers are cumulative over the last 22 years.

I think it is also interesting to note that most of the professionals that have taken my Idea Mapping Workshop have been part of a small course between 20-30 participants. People still comment that it is one of the best  courses they have ever attended and they wish they had learned the tools contained in the workshop when they were in school. Never too late to learn.
