Concept Mapping

Concept Mapping (also Group Concept Mapping) is a participatory-based approach that explores how a group of individuals understands a particular issue. This method combines ideation, idea sorting, and idea rating with advanced algorithms to generate information-rich deliverables. With Polygon’s intuitive tool, the participant’s experience is seamless, unleashing the full potential for interpretation and understanding. Tap into collective knowledge with CM*.
