Brainstorming is a problem-solving approach by generating new ideas, topics, and solutions. The process begins with a defined objective to achieve or problem to solve followed by exploring all the possible angles. In the professional world of collaborative work, team members brainstorm ideas and topics without any judgment. These brainstormed ideas are transformed into a mind map after proper analysis and discussion.

EdrawMind offers an excellent brainstorming mode where you can brainstorm ideas collaboratively, group the topics distinctively, analyze the ideas thoroughly, and transform them into a mind map structure instantly. You can collect random ideas, group them as per priority, and connect them. You can even use a timer to conduct the brainstorming session within time limits. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to open and use brainstorming mode.
