Mindmappen en zo #deel1

Mindmapping is een middel om

  • na te denken over idee
  • dingen op te schrijven
  • te brainstormen
  • ideen uit te werken
  • ….

Tony Buzan zegt dat hij de bedenker is van de moderne mindmap maar daarover verschillen de meningen.
Zeker is wel dat Buzan de methode erg populair en bekend heeft gemaakt.

Mindmaps

Wat is een mindmap, wanneer gebruik je ze ( en wanneer niet) en wat is nu eigenlijk het verschil met ouderwets notitie nemen.

Veel mensen werken niet met mindmaps omdat ze eigenlijk niet goed weten wat ze ermee kunnen doen.

Een mindmap is een visuele voorstelling van informatie rond een central idee/thema. Dit plaatst men in het midden van de pagina. Vanuit dit idee vertrekken dan weer onderverdelingen. Elke tak kan dan bestaan uit kleinere takken 

Soms zijn er verbanden tussen de verschillenden takken.
Dit kan je ook visueel tonen in je mindmap.

Gebruik mindmaps voor

  • Samenvattingen  van informatie
  • Brainstormsessie

Waarvoor kan je mindmaps niet gebruiken ?

 Als je slecht een kleine hoeveelheid informatie zonder veel structuur wil vastleggen, zoals bijvoorbeeld een boodschappen lijstje.

Als je te veel informatie wil vastleggen, is een mindmap ook niet efficient.
Een mindmap moet nog altijd overzichtelijk en leesbaar blijven.
Als je mindmap te groot en onleesbaar wordt, kan je het centrale idee eventueel opsplitsen in meerdere mindmaps.
Bijvoorbeeld van een te grote mindmap: alle financiele bedrijfsprocessen in 1 mindmap voorstellen

Waarom neem ik niet gewoon notities ?

Notities zijn gewoon een platte voorstelling van informatie.
Je kan wel een klein beetje structuur tonen zoals bulletpoints en nummering en af en toe een kleine titel om wat hiërarchie en structuur te laten zien.

Gebruik notities voor

Notities zijn niet echt gemakkelijk om

  • problemen op te lossen,
  • te brainstormen en
  • alles waarbij het nodig is om de verschillende verbanden tussen stukken informatie te tonen.

Een betere manier om al je notities te bewaren zijn spreadsheets en databanken. Zij zijn speciaal gemaakt voor grote hoeveelheden van gestructureerde data.

Verschillende types van mindmaps

Er bestaan verschillende soorten mindmaps en je kan ook verschillende indelingen maken

  1. Moeilijkheid
  2. inhoud
  3. Opbouw

A.  Moeilijkheid

Een eenvoudige map : heeft een centraal idee en hiërarchische vertakkingen

Een meta mindmap : zoals de eenvoudige map (met 1 centraal idee en hierarchische vertakkingen) maar er staat meestal nog extra informatie en commentaar bij

Complexe mindmap : dit type bevat meerdere centrale ideeën en toont de relaties tussen de verschillende ideeën en hun respectievelijke vertakkingen (nodes). Je kan een complexe mindmap opsplitsen in meerdere eenvoudige mappen.

B. Inhoud

Mindmaps om problemen om te lossen :

  • Worden gebruikt tijdens brainstormsessies met de bedoeling om zo veel moeglijk ideeën  te genereren.

Mindmaps als project mappen

  • Om een evenement te plannen
  • Om de lancering van een nieuw product voor te bereiden
  • Om een strategie te ontwikkelen

Mindmaps als kennis mappen

  • Beschrijven van bedrijfsprocessen
  • Vastleggen van stappenplannen

Mindmaps als referentie

  • Voor het verzamelen van documenten en rapporten

Presentatie mindmaps

  • Om een presentatie te houden
  • Als begeleiding bij een opleiding

 C. Opbouw

  • Mindmap met central idee in het midden
  • Mindmap  met rechtse kolommen : centraal idee staat links en alle vertakkingen staan rechts uitgewerkt
  • Mindmap met linkse kolommen : omgekeerde van het voorbeeld hierboven

Waarom zou je mindmappen ?

Je kan mindmap voor allerlei zaken gebruiken. Hoe frequenter je ze gebruikt, hoe meer ideeën je krijgt om ze te gebruiken.
Ik gebruik ze meestal om betaalde ideeën uit te werken.

  • Brainstormen : mindmaps zijn ideaal om te gebruiken tijdens brainstormsessies.
  • Notities nemen : maak notities van je boeken met een mindmap. Ook notities die je neemt tijdens een lezing of opleiding kan je prima verwerken in een mindmap.
  • Drafts van documenten : maak een mindmap van alle zaken die je wil vermelden en bespreken in je document.

Mindmapping Tools

De eenvoudige manier om een mindmap te maken is met pen en papier.
Meestal gebeurt de eerste uitwerking van een idee nogal nonchalant op een kladje papier.

Natuurlijk bestaat er ook een enorm aanbod aan software.
Je kan op veel manieren een keuze maken

  • gratis of  betalend
  • voor computer of  iPad of …
  • voor Mac of Windows
  • offline vs online
