‘Fractured Workplace’ Open Book Project

Here is the C-Map I developed to begin this project. If you click on it, you’ll get it full screen size.  As you can see, it maps out the main ideas, concepts and relationships of the book, in a general way,at the current point in its development.  C-Map is a great (free) tool for this kind of conceptual mapping, very flexible and easy to use.

The C-Map for the book is not intended to be exhaustive or to lock the project down–it allows for evolving ideas and themes which emerge in the process of writing. It provides a provisional map of the conceptual landscape, which allows me to begin the project and to focus on each topic in turn, within the whole. It frees up the creative process by taking care of the emergent possibilities. The book will evolve, as I shape and re-shape it through my own iterative readings, and in interaction with your comments, and the map will evolve with it–it’s a unique kind of map, in that it changes as you move through the landscape, and things up ahead begin to move around and take different shapes.  It remains a map, though, a central navigational aid, telling you at any point where you are, and where you’re going.
