7 redenen om voor een mindmap te kiezen #deel4

Als je niet bekend bent met mindmappen, dan zal je niet snel geneigd zijn deze ook te gebruiken.
Toch kan je met een mindmap meer doen dan louter brainstormen.

Waarom ga je mindmappen ?

  • Mindmappen heeft veel voordelen tegenover gewoon platte notities
  • Je kan een mindmap voor allerlei zaken gebruiken omdat het een goed visueel overzicht geeft

Hieronder vind je 7 redenen waarom je zou kiezen voor een mindmap in plaats van voor een gewoon papier

1. Notities van vergaderingen

Een mindmap is een handige manier om je aantekeningen tijdens een meeting te verzamelen. Sommige vergaderingen lopen niet altijd zoals gepland. Er worden allerlei ideeën en strategieën besproken en van alle kanten hoor je feedback.
Als je alleen maar doorlopende notities maakt, krijg je wanorderlijke en onduidelijke notities.

In deze situaties krijg je meer overzicht als je alles noteert in een mindmap.

2. Project Management

Er bestaat genoeg software voor het beheren van grote projecten.
Voor kleine projecten echter kan je zeker werken met een mindmap.

Kies als onderwerp van je mindmap je huidige project.
Voor de verdelingen kan je de volgende items kiezen

  • Deelnemers
  • Budget
  • Middelen
  • Wat is het doel
  • Deadline
  • ….

Dit zijn slecht een paar onderdelen van een project.

3.Voor studenten

Je kan mindmaps gebruiken als je nota’s neemt en tijdens het studeren.

Ook als voorbereiding voor een examen kan je werken met mindmaps.
Je kan een thema noteren en dan alles wat relevant is, uitwerken per onderdeel.

Je kan ook verbanden leggen tussen sommige items.
Zo kan je je hele cursus uittekenen in een mindmap, zonder jezelf in de details te verliezen. (Waarmee ik niet wil zeggen dat de details onbelangrijk zijn )

4. Als je plan of uitdaging hebt

Een mindmap kan je helpen als je voor jezelf bepaalde doelen gesteld hebt.
Misschien wil je binnen 6 maanden 10 kilometer lopen. Met een mindmap kan je een stappenplan uitwerken.

Vooral kleurijke mindmaps kunnen heel stimulerend werken omdat ze je helpen om je doel te visualiseren.

5. Oplossen van problemen

Er zijn veel manieren om een probleem op te lossen maar een erg bekende manier is met de 5W methode

Wie, Wat, Waar, Wanneer, Waarom…. Om het compleet te maken kan je ook nog Hoe gebruiken.

Als je deze 6 vragen stelt (elke vraag staat voor 1 tak van de mindmap) zie je dikwijls de verbanden tussen je antwoorden.
Dit zorgt ervoor dat het probleem erg duidelijk wordt en laat je toe de juiste oplossingen te vinden.

1. Begin door  je probleem het hoofthema van de mindmap  te maken. Elke vraag is een aparte tak van de mindmap.
2. Beantwoord elke vraag apart. Als je alle vragen beantwoord hebt, overloop je ze samen. Op deze manier vind je dikwijls een oplossing.

6. Brainstorming

Bij brainstormen ontstaan er veel ideeen en sommige zijn zelf verschrikkelijk ver gezocht en niet toepasbaar.
Door al je ideeën in een mindmap te verzamelen kan je later alle bruikbare ideeën verzamelen.

7. Knopen doorhakken

Als je beslissingen moet nemen is het handig als je een overzicht hebt van alle knopen die je moet doorhakken.
Je kan dit erg gemakkelijk doen met een mindmap. Je verzamelt al je opties en je kan eventueel de voor- en nadelen van die optie vermelden.

Op deze manier krijg je een visueel overzicht en zie je direct de verbanden tussen alle opties.
Beslissingsbomen zijn ook een goede manier om je te helpen de juiste keuze te maken.
