Have you ever had a brilliant idea that you were excited to share, only for fear to kick in and stop you in your tracks? What if others thought it was too wacky? What if it was flawed? At some point, we can all fall victim to self-doubt. Don’t fret, Mind Mapping a Greens and Reds Analysis will help you to surpass your initial doubt.
The Greens and Reds Analysis is a simple but effective problem solving strategy that allows you to look at an idea’s pros and cons and make confident choices. By doing your homework, in this case analysing your idea, you will build a strong case around it before you present it to others. In the example below, we will imagine that we manage a companies I.T. department and some of our support team members would like to work from home a few days a week, rather than travelling to the office every day. For an effective analysis, we recommend weighing up the ‘Greens and Reds’ of an idea using the Mind Mapping technique.
