    I read this blog post on Mind Mapping in Testing and it got me thinking about Mind Maps.

    Having come across a few recently related to testing, I wonder how common they are in testing and if they are a useful tool or take up more effort than they are worth?

    Would you say they are relevant to all areas in testing or are only particularly suited to certain testing disciplines?

    Thanks for sharing the blog! In exploratory testing it fits well, i think , and in many others areas.

    hi,

    If you look at the State of Testing Survey 2015 it says that 21..5% of testers use mind maps for documentation.
    here is the report: http://www.practitest.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/State_of_Testing_Survey_2015.pdf

    And if you are looking for a testing mindmap you might want to check out: thetestingmap.org

    have fun !!

    Hi Ronan,

    I use mind maps extensively in my testing. I find it useful in note taking during exploratory testing – keeps me always on track.
    I also use mind maps in test design, to quickly put my test ideas before I document them.
