Quality Mind Maps: A Creative Look at Quality Procedures

Successful quality management implemented in a company of any size is a critical component of a company’s organization. Effective quality management requires strong formal procedures and a quality culture inside of the organization. Constant improvement of key performance indicators that are related to quality is a step in the right direction for a company interested in market growth.

Flowcharts (TQM flowcharts, VSM flowcharts, etc.) are recognized as a formal method of visualizing quality management and are a fundamental tool in quality management. There are other tools that are available to lend a fresh look to quality procedures. ConceptDraw MINDMAP has a new addition to the ConceptDraw Solution Park that provides a creative approach to visualizing quality processes, Quality Mind Map Solution.

Mind maps can be used to depict a quality process. With a mind map one can easily describe a quality process using a tree structure as well as show process relations, use visual symbols to improve understanding, and produce presentations. You can use mind maps for a complete quality process analysis, giving more visibility to the focal points that you need to get clear.

ConceptDraw MINDMAP v7 is a good way to describe visual instructions on any process. Printed on a single page, it is easy to identify the critical points during a conference call. As a note-taking tool, it lends itself to reorganizing the notes taken during a planning conversation to the corresponding spot in the structure of a template. Note organization is as easy as dragging-and-dropping content to its correct placement.

Mind maps are great for producing agendas used in quality meetings. You can print a copy for each participant, in order to keep everyone informed on core points and objectives. Viewing the mind map on a large screen during a meeting and making changes and putting notes helps to keep all participants on the same page. Final decisions, deals, and to-do lists can be added to this mind map so that the map content can be sent or printed for everyone, so that the whole team has a ready-to-work document.

Once a quality problem is identified, mind maps can be of great value in depicting and describing a problem in detail, then structure it, and find the right decision. The visual form of mind maps is helpful in all stages of quality management, from describing problem to describing and documenting a decision.

Using quality mind maps is a perfect addition to quality visualization in your company. Mind maps provide descriptive documents for daily work and keep all quality team members clearly informed about key points. The features of ConceptDraw MINDMAP v7 preserves total quality management and helps bring out the best in your products and services.
