Derek Roberts is a product design engineer who attended the 2-day Idea Mapping Workshop held at ACH on October 3-4, 2007. This is the first map he created following the workshop. The above meeting minutes were from a Design Review with a potential new supplier for a glove box dampener -- a small part that you don't see, but it makes the glove box open slowly and controlled when you unlatch it.
The map covered meeting attendees and the following key areas:
- Tuning (the 6 O'Clock branch) - This told Derek how the dampener could be adjusted to suit his design
- Prototypes (also 6 O'Clock branch) - Timing for parts delivery
- Need (the 10 O'Clock branch) - The follow-up required from the supplier.

Hint #16 - Meeting notes are a great place to start implementing your Idea Mapping. Typically they are a "safe" environment and the information is shared at a reasonable pace. Give it a try.
