I wrote an article on mind maps in the BenefIT magazine for the March 2011 issue. The people at BenefIT are nice enough to license the content under a CC license, so I can host the pdf and point you to it:
This article talks about how mind maps are beneficial for the thought process and how you can use them to make decisions.
This is my second article that got published in the BenefIT magazine. I've written one on taking frequent breaks from the computer earlier. Writing for non-tech, business-oriented people is different, and not very straightforward :-)
