Renderas:sect2. Mind Mapping

This technique is also called idea mapping, clustering, webbing, and spidering. It is a fast, fun method of free association that produces ideas. It helps members suspend judgment of ideas and can be used either individually or in a group. Following is an abbreviated description.

  1. Instruct members to write a word or phrase on a piece of paper that describes the problem. Draw a circle around the problem statement.

  2. For two minutes, write down all aspects of the problem. (See Mind Map I.)

  3. Connect the related words with arrows or lines.

  4. Look for three or four main themes or categories, and assign a geometric symbol (for example, square, circle, triangle, diamond) to each category. (See Mind Map II.)

  5. Discuss the findings.
