Here’s a mindmap template I’ve found useful for managing product development activities. The right side of the mindmap contains the typical ‘phase’ activities that lead from concept to launch of a product. The left side of the diagram has administrative items like key milestones, documentation, and schedules. On the development ‘phase’ activities, add tasks and next actions for the activities you’re engaged in (or about to start). It’s best to only add next actions for items you or your team is actually working on (phase activities can cover a large span of time and you should be focused on getting what needs to be done now).
