5 simple tweaks to use Mind-Maps for meeting minutes

Summer has arrived in Germany and this is the best time to talk about Mind-Maps. Wait a minute. What do these two events have in common? Right! Nothing! But I needed a connection – and that’s what Mind-Maps will do for you – connect things. In this episode I will concentrate on using Mind-Maps for taking meeting minutes.

Taking minutes can be some real awkward story. But using Mind-Maps it gets more natural, more fluent, and more precise. But, doing it that way, I detected during running consecutive task-force meetings, that the Mind-Map approach is not that stringent. It needed some tweaks to get its real harmony and fluency. And this episode is about the five major tricks I have found during the last months when using Mind-Maps for taking meeting minutes.

In the very first part of the episode I provide you a short survey about the available Mind-Mapping software. It’s of course not complete, however will give you a very first step into the topic. In the links-section below you’ll find all the mentioned applications and programs.
