Mind Mapping is an effective productivity tool that I’ve been using for about 10 years. I find Mind Mapping really makes note taking more efficient. Also, the visual representation of ideas lets me comprehend the concepts quickly. Frankly, I’m surprised that I don’t see more people in the business world using this method.
In summary, Mind Mapping is useful for:
- Summarizing information;
