First introduced in 1970 by Tony Buzan, the goal of a mind map is to identify the core idea and then organize related topics around it. Each subtopic can be broken down further into end nodes if desired. This process is thought to depict the way our brain naturally operates and can aid in the organization of ideas. For this week, you will develop a mind map identifying each stage of a project lifecycle. When developing your mind map, be sure to include several characteristics of each stage, and cite your references when appropriate. Be sure to watch the “What is a Mind Map” video prior to beginning this assignment.
