Burritos & Sundresses It's summertime and most of my motivation, to put it bluntly, is focused on Chipotle, Mountain Dew and girls. It reminds me of that episode of Friends when someone asks Joey what he'd rather give up, food or women?
This article proposes some conventions on formats for common mind maps used in organizations, with a view to enhancing their use by using familiar patterns. It does not suggest that flexible, free-form mapping should be dropped. Its author has pointed out that "formality versus flexibility is not an either/or situation – both are needed, at different times and for different purposes."
If you have spent a few minutes at Mind-Mapping.Org or on this blog, you will know that I like and use mind maps and concept maps. You may not know I also use more formal visual models like data models, object-role modelling, and process simulation models. I find these immensely useful in understanding the way businesses work, improving businesses and finding ways to solve problems. One modelling tool I learned about last year, Southbeach Notation, has grabbed more of my attention. Someone emailed me and asked why Southbeach Modeller was not in the Master List, and I slapped my forehead and asked myself the same question, because I had known about it for around a year. This may not have the whizz-bang visual effects of some tools covered here, but it is practical, and produces a visual result that gives a good overview, and guides where effort should be focused as a problem-solving project proceeds.
Southbeach Modeller is a low cost prosumer modelling tool, offering advanced features not found in any mindmap or concept mapping software.
