“Taskforce” Meeting Template December 8, 2005

Posted by Gary Slinger in MindMapping, Process.
2 comments

To me, a “Taskforce” meeting is one where a variety of folks are called together, and told to “fix that problem”, whatever that particular problem may be. I’ve just been asked to form such a group, to address an application performance issue at work, and in setting up the meeting, I brought together a number of my current notes and templates into a single MindManager template, for re-use. Thought I’d post it here – if you find it useful, have any comments, or want a copy of the template file itself, just let me know.

When I hold the meeting tomorrow, I’ll give out copies of the map, with the “Notes/Thoughts” section collapsed, but everything else expanded, for the participants reference. The “Notes/Thoughts” section is for me, as the meeting lead, to remind me of “discussion methods” that can be useful for these kind of things – simple brainstorming, the Six Thinking Hats, and SCAMPER.

During the meeting, I’ll make notes on the whiteboard, on my copy of the agenda, and on regular paper as I see fit. As it’ll be a fairly interactive meeting, I’m not going to try and take digital notes, either in OneNote or straight into MindManager, as I might under other circumstances; instead I’ll update everything into the MindManager map as appropriate after the meeting, and then send out both the map itself, and a Word document generated from it, for participants reference.

Update: I realised that although I can’t use the MindManager web embed option, I can load the file up to WordPress for those of you that have MindManager itself, and want the file. I’ve got no way of tracking that, so if you take it and like it, or have any other comments, do please let me know in the comments section. Thanks.

Update 2: Well, apparently not. It worked in testing yesterday, but WordPress.com won’t allow me to upload a “.mmap” file now. I don’t know if that is a deliberate change, or a temporary thing. I’ll check again later. So, the original still applies – if you want the file, just let me know.

I’ve added “Blackberry” as a sub-category to “Technology”, as I seem to be writing about it regularly.  I’m going to go back and update previous posts to reflect this category, in addition to “Technology”.  Hopefully, that won’t push those back out to the RSS feed – sorry if it means you get dupes; it’s just a one-off correction.

Hello WordPress Dashboard Readers… November 29, 2005

Posted by Gary Slinger in Blogging.

No idea how I ended up on the dashboard as a “growing blog”, but it’s been very apparent once I looked at the referrer’s page!  Anyway, posting has been light the last few days, as you’ll see, due to the Thanksgiving holiday in the US, and a personal vacation, but I plan on getting back in to this.

Coming up, in the next day or three, a post on “GTD With A Blackberry” – as I’ve noticed a few referrer hits from that particular Google search, and practicing the Getting Things Done methodology, with a Blackberry, is indeed something I make a habit of.

Comments welcome, good or bad, on what you’ve seen so far.

Cheers!
