Topic: Evolution of the Prehistoric Sticky Note: Mind Mapping

Speaker:  Brandon Conrad

Topic Description: Tired of sticky notes and whiteboard sessions? Mind Mapping is used in requirements gathering sessions and the construction of the WBS. Mind mapping has traditionally been presented as a tool for planning and organization, an effective way to develop, organize, and present multiple facets of the project plan. Primarily used for the construction of the WBS, advanced uses of this technique also simplify the complex process of communicating the project plan. When Mind Mapping is coupled with technology it simplifies the process and enhances communication. During this presentation, I will explain the mind mapping theory and how that theory can be applied to BAs and PMs. I will also demonstrate best practice techniques in mind mapping and how it relates to technology. Participants will learn how to simplify the project life cycle and improve communication of a project plan.

About The Speaker: Our presenter today is Brandon Conrad from MatchWare Inc.  Brandon has a degree in Economics and Psychology from the University of Kansas.  Brandon has worked for MatchWare since 2005 as a product manager.  In his time there, he has focused on mind mapping software and how it relates to project management.  Brandon has written articles and given presentations to multiple project management groups in the US and Europe about using mind mapping in project management.  His articles have been published in multiple PMI publications.  His presentations have been with various PMI chapters and at the PMI Global Congress in 2009.
