How to Brainstorm with ConceptDraw MINDMAP

Brainstorming is a way of generating ideas related to a specific theme. Usually brainstorming involves a group of people generating a lot of ideas in a short period of time. The key to brainstorming is putting off the process of evaluating ideas until a later stage. The participants keep a record of their ideas as they come to mind, without thinking them over. Unorthodox and unusual thoughts are welcome, and no criticism or justification is allowed in order to encourage participation. Though one can brainstorm individually, the technique works better in a group, as ideas expressed by one participant trigger more ideas from others, often based on associations, and the participants can benefit from each other’s experience and knowledge. Brainstorming using a software tool has a lot of advantages over the traditional way of capturing ideas like flip-charts or white-boards. The latter have physical size limitations, which constrain the process as the number of ideas grows. Ideas become scattered around the room, making it is easy to overlook important ideas. Further grouping and prioritizing of ideas is inconvenient and requires a lot of effort. ConceptDraw MINDMAP helps to avoid these problems.
