According to the surveys of users of mind mapping software that I have conducted, one of the biggest needs that many of you have is to see examples of successful software-produced mind maps, and to understand what makes them work. In other words, many of you are looking for case histories that illustrate some of the best practices of visual mapping.
As part of my research for an expanded and updated second edition of my popular Power Tips & Strategies for Mind Mapping Software e-book, I have decided to address this need by collecting mind mapping case histories from you, the readers of this blog. If you have used mind mapping software to create a visual map that meets your needs exceptionally well (it has saved you time, helped you solve problems or handle "information overload" very effectively, for example), I'd like to hear from you. I'd like you to submit a case history and send me a screen shot of your favorite productivity-increasing map.
To make this easy, I have created a Word document where you can submit your information to me in a structured format. To download this form, please right click on this link, and save it to your computer. The document contains instructions and guidelines to help you gather your thoughts and write your case history.
What's in it for you? If I use your case history in my e-book, you will receive a free copy of it when it is published (hopefully a few months from now!). In addition, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you're contributing to a growing body of knowledge of the best practices of software-produced visual maps.
I look forward to hearing from you!
