Planning and executing a Consulting Assignment using mind maps
Business Club webinar: 14 December 2017
We are delighted to welcome one of our community members, Brian Clark for our next Business Club webinar.
Brian is the Director at DOTS Talent Solutions Consulting in Brisbane and will be talking to us about his uses of mind mapping to undertake business processes in the planning and execution of a consulting engagement.
So if you work in consulting, professional sales, advisory and or if you manage people in these sorts of roles, or even if you have an interest in consultancy, we recommend this webinar to you!
In this webinar, Brian will discuss and demonstrate how he is using mind mapping to capture information about client requirements in a structured way, developing a consulting plan for the engagement, and tracking the execution of the consulting engagement. This includes task management, communications, information capture, client approval and payment milestones.
Brian hopes to assist the listeners to gain an understanding of how he uses mind mapping to plan and execute a consulting assignment for a client. This will hopefully help you to generate some ideas on how you could apply mind mapping to any project whether client focused or internal. Listeners will see how mind mapping can play an effective role as an information and planning hub as part of an information and client management system.
There are many challenges faced when working in consultancy, but Brian believes that mind mapping can help to reduce the risk of misunderstanding and lack of clarity with clients, and also helps in differentiating you from other consultants and advisors. In this webinar, Brian will showcase how mind mapping software is a powerful tool for managing information effectively for both a consulting business and a client.
