was accomplished in four hours. In parts of the interview that deviated from the established
influence, I tagged the transcript with a Post-ItTM note.
Using Microsoft Office, I coded transcripts using the mind mapping strategy. The final
transcripts were printed and labeled based on each participant, the influence covered in the
transcript, and the order that the interview occurred. Pages were numbered for reference
purposes with S1 (1) being the Scientist, Interview 1, Page 1. I used mind mapping to form
general thematic ideas within each influence. Concepts were represented by circles emanating
from a single, central circle, linked by non-directional lines. Multiple maps were produced from
each interview, based on emerging themes. When an idea discussed in the interview did not fit
into the influence being discussed, the page was tagged with a Post-ItTM note. If an idea could
also be included in another influence as well as the one being discussed, the page was also
tagged with a Post-ItTM note.
All participants' transcripts were coded once using this methodology. Coding for each
transcript took between one hour and four hours. Mind maps were stored on a USB flash drive
by name of the participant, influence number, and date when the interview was coded using mind
mapping, so the Scientist 1.4.5.06 was the Scientist's first interview, with mind mapping done on
April 5, 2006. These mind maps were printed in hard copy for review. After coding was
completed on all participants using this methodology, a second round of coding was completed
to verify original mind mapping. This coding was done in the same order as the original coding.
Changes were handwritten on each map. A third round of mind mapping occurred where tagged
interview concepts were integrated into the original mind maps. These tagged concepts were also
handwritten on the original mind maps, including the location of the idea within the interview
transcripts. A fourth round of mind mapping was undertaken whereby concepts within each
