Chapter Meeting – January 2021: Evolution of the Pre-Historic Sticky Note

Non-Members $25, Members $10, Volunteers $0.  

Abstract:

Tired of sticky notes and whiteboard sessions? Mind Mapping is used in requirements gathering sessions and the construction of the WBS.  Mind mapping has traditionally been presented as a tool for planning and organization, an effective way to develop, organize, and present multiple facets of the project plan.  Primarily used for the construction of the WBS, advanced uses of this technique also simplify the complex process of communicating the project plan. When Mind Mapping is coupled with technology it simplifies the process and enhances communication.  During this presentation, I will explain the mind mapping theory and how that theory can be applied to BAs and PMs.  I will also demonstrate best practice techniques in mind mapping and how it relates to technology. Participants will learn how to simplify the project life cycle and improve communication of a project plan.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand how to mind map and the mind map theory.
  2. Grasp the concept of mind mapping as it relates to project management.
  3. Comprehend how mind mapping will simplify the project life cycle.
