The concept map method allows a person or team to collect their ideas about a central topic in a visual way. This is known by a few different names: concept mapping, mental mapping, mind mapping, and even concept webbing.
The main topic will be in the center of the map and related ideas will radiate out from it.
A concept map maker like SmartDraw lets you visualize your ideas without interrupting your creative flow. As you think of a new idea just add a shape to your concept map and type. Ideas will be loosely connected to each other. You can always go back to organize and create logical groupings and hierarchies later.
You can easily make any idea on your concept map a Trello card by connecting to any existing Trello board for your team. Updates from Trello will be automatically reflected on your mind map too.
