"A good way to define the context for a concept map is to construct a Focus Question, that is a question that clearly specifies the problem or issue the concept map should help to resolve. Every concept map responds to a focus question, and a good focus question can lead to a much richer concept map"  (Cañas and Novak) When you feel you have a focus question that gets to the heart of the subject you intend to map, you will add boxes containing the concepts related to the question.
This article originally appeared in Wikipedia, but was deleted because it was judged not to meet Wikipedia notability standards. It describes a useful visual thinking tool, however, and is therefore reproduced in WikIT, which originally had a brief mention of it. Southbeach Notation is a visual modeling language for situation improvement  and is one of an increasing number of methods used around the world for intensifying innovation.  It is derived from and extends TRIZ notations for inventive problem solving.  Models are created in the form of diagrams similar to Cause-effect graphs that show the different parts of a system ( Agents ) as red blocks if they are considered harmful and green blocks if they are considered useful. Organizations known to be using Southbeach include CSC, BearingPoint UK, Intel and ShapingTomorrow.
