Mind Mapping a Professional Judgment and Decision Making Model

As I’ve been reading Judgment and Decision Making in Accounting, I’ve been concept mapping with an app called Mindomo. My map ended up looking like this (click to enlarge).

Problem Solving Mind Map

I’ve never mind mapped (or would the correct term be “mapped mind”?) while reading before, so it was an interesting experience. Bonner describes problem solving’s three major components: the person, the task, and the environment, and the research behind each, particularly as it relates to accounting professionals. Good stuff! Each of the little notebook icons are elaborated notes (which, of course, don’t work on an exported image file). Mind mapping was useful for engaging with the text, with the happy side effect of producing an artifact that will be a handy reference sheet later.
