Stakeholder map: the project stakeholders' classification
Identify and classify the stakeholders who have an influence on your project.
Mindmapping, or mental mapping, is a simple and visual way to organize ideas, by representing and connecting them in a dedicated space. Photos, words, symbols, colors, drawings, everything can be used to convey your message, and to make sure everyone in your team understands it.
This powerful tool can bring in many benefits to improve organization, learning and information retention. On a mindmap, it becomes easier to visualize all the ins and outs of a project, and then faster find the right solutions. Even more, this can help a lot to increase productivity and boost your team's creative energy!
If you have already tried to organize your ideas visually, one of your main conclusions probably would have been that it can quickly get out of control. Too much space on one side, not enough on the other, with 100 sticky notes holding tight in a little square, and threads between ideas crossing in all directions...
Does this ring a bell? In the end, it can even raise doubts about the efficiency of mindmapping itself, because the after picture looks more confusing than the before. Then, how can you make your final mindmappings clear and logical?
When it's just you and your mindmap, it is easier to represent things in the way you imagine them. But when a project requires to be mapped visually with your team, you need to ensure a good overall coordination, especially when everyone is not physically together.
To put into perspective all the shared ideas, your mindmap needs to be constantly up to date as the group reflexion moves forward. And here is how you can make it work with organized, collaborative and accessible mindmaps!
