  • Natural Planning Model as MindManager map

    In an effort to be more systematic in my project planning I have translated DA's Natural Planning Model into a MindManager map. It is a straight copy of the model as shown on the GTD template card, plus a branch at the bottom showing some further information that Lisa Peake posted about reviewing projects (can't remember exactly where I found that bit). Run your cursor over the notes icons to reveal the full text. The map helps me stay consistent with GTD methodology as, when thinking larger projects through I build them onto its branches.

    I'm finding this item quite handy so I thought I'd share it.

    (By the way, everyone who benefits from mind mapping should acknowledge the contribution of the man who introduced the technique - Tony Buzan).

      Yes, but there wouldn't be much point because you wouldn't be able to see the embedded notes - just the headings.

      You could download the Mind Manager trial and take a look.

        There's also a free viewer program to read (but not edit) .mmap files: http://www.mindjet.com/us/download/viewer.php

          A free mind-mapping tool...

          Here is a link to a free software that can handle Mind Manager files... not so fancy, but anyway..

            Mindomo.com also can view MindManager files.

            While MindManager is a more sophisticated program, Mindomo.com is a great online version, the basic service is free.

              @Howard: Thanks for this map, it will help many people with this method.

              Addendum to Popeyes gint to freemind: the 0.9.0 beta 15 is known to be stable and has many more features than the 0.80 stable release.

              Yours

                  Natural Planning Process MindMap

                  Howard - thanks so much for creating and uploading this Mindmap on the Natural Planning Model. I'm listening to David Allen's webinar from May 2011 on Mind mapping and he spoke of the Natural Planning Model and the usefulness of mind mapping ... and I googled and found this in the forums! Excellent! Thanks for your work and for sharing.

                    You're welcome! I'd forgotten that I'd put this file on the forum four years ago. I'd better start using map again myself!

                    Kind regards

                      Thanks for this, I wanted to create such template myself but it's so obvious that I never actually took the time. It's still very useful to be reminded about those steps sometimes.
                      This saved me some time and effort

                      I'm using this on iPad with iThoughtsHD, fits nicely into my support material since every project support material is stored in mind maps anyway.
