Conversation mapping

A technique developed by Bruce McKenzie similar to a group mind map, conversation mapping has specific rules that allows participants to freely, anonymously, time-boundlessly, tangentially comment and converse and contribute to important complex issues that are not easily solved.

Using a trigger word or phrase, participants begin to write feelings or impressions that relate to that key word on large sheets of paper. Given a little time, it is easy to see the importance of issues and linkages. The process rests on principles of transparency, learning and all contributions are valuable.
