Biggerplate Consulting

Helping organisations to integrate mind mapping techniques to achieve maximum business impact!

Our Process

We help organisations apply mind mapping in the right places, based on a comprehensive understanding of existing activities, and the development of practical templates and guidance to align with them.

Our service is based on the following 3 phases:


1. Map the System

We work with you to map out your existing business activities, and identify the areas where mind mapping could add most value.

2. Template Development

We develop a set of custom mind map templates aligned with your existing activities, and 'playbook' guidance for each use case.

3. Implementation Support

We provide training and support to help teams and individuals easily integrate the mind mapping templates and techniques into their working routines.

1. Map the System

Our goal in this phase is to identify existing areas in your business where mind mapping tools and techniques may provide the most value. We identify these by working with key team members to map out an overview of your current business activities, including any particular problem areas, and/or significant opportunities.

What are we looking for?

We're looking for existing activities in the business that may benefit from better information management, improved collaboration, and/or creative and critical thinking. We're looking for areas where a macro and micro view are needed in order to be effective, as well as customer-facing activities that might benefit from more consultative approaches. Finally, we're looking for repeatable processes that may feel cumbersome or overwhelming, where people take shortcuts or fall into a box-ticking, form-filling mindset.

These areas are likely to be the most relevant places to implement mind mapping techniques, and hence will become the focus of the next phase.

2. Template Development

Having identified the most relevant activities within your business, we will then work with you to develop custom mind map templates to reflect your existing approaches, and provide accompanying guidance documents (a 'Playbook') for each of the identified activities, showing how to use mind mapping in each specific context.

The goal here is to closely align our mind map templates with your existing processes and activities, so that it is easier for people to experiment with mind mapping via a process or activity that feels familiar. This is NOT about process re-design, but rather integrating a robust mind mapping technique into the existing activity via simple templates and practical guidance.

3. Implementation Support

Once all templates and guidance documentation has been provided, we then work with you and your team to ensure successful implementation. This is achieved through training and coaching (which can be delivered in-person or virtually), as well as via additional resources delivered via Biggerplate website (such as relevant webinars, tutorials, and accompanying mind maps).

The goal in this phase is to provide people with low-risk opportunities to experiment with the mind mapping templates and techniques, to build both confidence and competence in using the techniques regularly in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do we need mind map software?

Eventually, yes. The outcome of this process is a set of digital mind map templates, and your team will need software in order to use these.

If you already have (or are about to purchase) mind mapping software, then the entire process will be conducted using your chosen software.

Not got software yet? No problem! We will be able to advise on which mind mapping software options may be most relevant for your organisation. We do not make or sell software, so can offer independent, impartial advice on what is likely to suit you best.

Will we need to become mind mapping software experts?

No. We know that the majority of individuals and organisations get most value from the basic functionality within mind mapping software, NOT the advanced features. Everything we develop with you will be focused on using the core mind mapping software features that can be learned quickly and easily by anyone.

How much does it cost?

Pricing for these projects depends on the number of business activities identified and agreed for action after the first phase, and the complexity of the work to be undertaken.
