This mind-map was completed with the use of teamwork where everyone had to brainstorm several ideas to arrive at a suitable solution. It has wide adaptability as it is convenient to edit and enhance memory with concise information. It is an easy visualization tool that allows making connection between several concepts. There are some limitations as well of the mind mapping tool (Wheeldon & Faubert, 2009). Its disadvantages include it is time consuming, it has to follow some rules and it also has some text limitations.
