Mind Mapping or Idea Mapping?
Jamie Nast
I started Mind Mapping in 1992 and was the only Senior Master Trainer for the Buzan Centre until 2006. I've authored a book titled, "Idea Mapping" and have trained 17,000+ professionals world-wide.
I use the term Idea Mapping out of respect for our mappers who map strictly by the Mind Mapping laws. Idea Mapping encourages breaking those laws. Although they have a time and place, I've had many a frustrated client who nearly threw out the tool because they felt their creativity was hampered (especially the one-word-per-branch law). I share these guidelines, but leave it to the mapper to determine if and when these guidelines are necessary based on the purpose of their map.
