If you’d like to provide more detail on fewer points, consider the head graphics diagram. The head graphic is a direct visual metaphor for a mind map. It shows clearly that you’re dealing with matters of thinking and creation.

Adding a few icons to each item creates a better visual association. As in the case below, where we added people symbol for human resources item, diamond for business value and arrow sign for strategy selection or planning.

Leverage the power and flexibility of visuals

Regardless of whether you use these or other forms when working with a mind map, take full use of visual representation. Adding colors, illustrative symbols support the power of the mind map approach, whether sketchnoting on paper, presenting on the flipchart or working in presentation software.

If you will go for digital presentation e.g. in PowerPoint, use the benefits of vector graphics. Having editable shapes, you can always adapt your diagrams to suit your needs. You can place your text and different aspects of the diagram anywhere you would like. You can add or remove text as you need. You can add or remove icons and even change the color. The outline style icons even allow you to select the outline color and thickness so that everything will look exactly how you’d like it to.

If you’re only going to present on a screen, then using a mind map with a dark background may be the best choice.
