I use mind-maps in my day-to-day business analysis work, and I use them more often when exploring subjects I want to write about in a blog post. So it should come as no surprise that I built a mind-map for my recent article The Role of the Business Analyst – It’s Time for a New Perspective. And I have continued to expand on it and I continue to think about my perspective on the subject.
Given that, I figured some of you who are not as familiar with mind-maps might find it interesting to see the mind-map I have been working with (updated as of today) and maybe get some ideas how you might use them for your own needs (either professional or personal). I am currently using the MindMaple ‘Lite’ software, but you can find links to it and several other mind-mapping packages on the Mind-Mapping Software page of the wiki.
Here is the mind-map. Click the image to see a larger version.
As always, comments and feedback are appreciated.
