The expanding application of Concept Mapping includes its role in knowledge elicitation, institutional memory preservation, and ideation. With the advent of the CmapTools knowledge modeling software kit, Concept Mapping is being applied with increased frequency and success to address a variety of problems in the workplace.

Supported by business application case studies, Applied Concept Mapping: Capturing, Analyzing, and Organizing Knowledge offers an accessible introduction to the theory, methods, and application of Concept Mapping in business and government. The case studies illustrate applications across a range of industries―including engineering, product development, defense, and healthcare.

The authors provide access to a free download of CmapTools, courtesy of the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, to enable readers to create and share their own Concept Maps. Offering examples from the United States, Canada, Australia, Spain, Brazil, Scotland, and The Netherlands, they highlight a global perspective of this dynamic tool. The text is organized into three sections:

  1. Practitioners’ Views―supplies narratives, guidance, and reviews of applications from career Concept Mappers
  2. Recent Case Studies and Results―presents in-depth examinations of specific applications and their results
  3. Pushing the Boundaries―explores what’s possible and where the boundary conditions lie

Applied Concept Mapping facilitates the fundamental understanding needed to harness the power of Concept Mapping to develop viable solutions to a virtually unlimited number of real-world problems.

He began his career as a psycholinguist, and founded the journal, Metaphor and Symbol. His subsequent research leveraged the psycholinguistics background in the study of methods for eliciting the knowledge of domain experts. Robert has been recognized internationally in disciplines including psychology, remote sensing, weather forecasting, and artificial intelligence, for his research on human factors in remote sensing, his work in the psychology of expertise and the methodology of cognitive task analysis, and for his work on HCC issues intelligent systems technology and the design of macrocognitive work systems. He is a Co-Editor for the Department on Human-Centered Computing in IEEE: Intelligent Systems, is Editor for the book Series, Expertise: Research and Applications, and a co-founder and Track Editor for the Journal of Cognitive Engineering and Decision Making.

He has consulted with more than 400 schools, universities and corporations, including recent work with Procter and Gamble, NASA, the U.S. Navy, and the Electric Power Research Institute. His recent book, Learning, Creating, and Using Knowledge: Concept Maps as Facilitative Tools in Schools and Corporations (Routledge, 2010) is being translated into three foreign languages. He has received a number of awards and honors, including a 1998 Honorary Doctorate from The University of Comahue, Nuquen, Argentina; Honorary Doctorate, Public University of Navarra, Pamplona, Spain, in 2002; Honorary Doctorate from the University of Urbino in 2006; and the first award for contributions to science education from the Council of Scientific Society Presidents.

Review:

Applied Concept Mapping has a place among strategies that help organizations generate innovations and enhance effectiveness by clarifying, organizing and connecting knowledge.
--Professor Rob Cross, McIntire School of Commerce, University of Virginia

Tools, benefits, uses... this is everything industry professionals need. An excellent example of how knowledge tools are making their way into industry application.
--Matthew Kelley, Westinghouse Electric Company


Concept Maps are one of the most flexible, powerful, and widespread methods for knowledge engineering, and this book shows practitioners how it is done.
 --Dr. Gary Klein, Author of Sources of Power: How People Make Decisions

This book is a key step toward expanding the power, usefulness and rewards of Concept Mapping into "the fields."
 --Professor Alan K. McAdams, The Johnson School, Cornell University

The wealth of knowledge, case studies and techniques this book embodies will be of significant value to all students and practitioners of knowledge engineering.
--Simon Henderson, QinetiQ
