    Flow charts are useful to help someone visualise a process and how things are linked but that is only once you have sorted thru the information.

    Mind maps are very good at organising AND connecting ideas. It is a method for brainstorming and being able to link different thoughts to each other. It is often used as a basis for developing ideas and identifying key points.....and probably more

    My mom-in-law uses it to teach the kids how to do composition in Malay Language for primary school students.

    She herself uses it help convey ideas more easily in her PhD dissertation.

    Cheers!

    Mind maps, depending on how you draw them, aids you in visualising ideas. It works for visual people, and screws things up for anyone else.

    LOL, if I see such a powerpoint slide during a meeting, my mind immediately goes blank with my imagination drifting to a tropical paradise fully of sexy babes.

    I think mind map is a waste of time. It doesn't help me at all.

    if you are not good in organizing your thoughts and not able to recall your line of thoughts , use mind maps

    before mind maps software or even this concepts was advertised everywhere, sure a few of us was already doing something similar, albeit using the fancy illustration. i used excel for this purpose, or sometimes with post-it notes to jot down the bits and pieces of thoughts and stick them on boards... all are the same. a tool / technique is only good with a good user.

    i find mind map easy to understand. it's alot easier than jotting down point by point (doesn't help when topics in discussion keep switching).

    it helps to just put a whole bunch of words together and move them around.
    personally I find writing short phrases/thoughts in a document and then shifting them around by cutting and pasting helpful..
    mindmaps are a good tool to help sort out multiple points

    that works as well. but if the topics are related how do you connect them?

    usually you can identify certain traits that differentiate a bunch of points, so you group them under certain headers.
    (sounds like common sense but it's easy to get overwhelmed by details..)
