Wisdom Consulting charts biz plan on idea mapping

Lisa Harvey Roach used to work for a big automotive supplier, teaching project management and helping things run smoothly. That is until she was told her services would soon no longer be needed, even after 20 years.

"They told us we had two years to find another job or we would lose our jobs," Roach says.

The Farmington Hills resident made a decision at that point in 2008. She decided to start her own company, Wisdom Consulting, and base it around her expertise in idea mapping. She teaches time and project management in a way that is different than the normal linear learning process. Think of it as organizing and problem solving in a manner similar to how one would brainstorm. "Not everyone learns the same way," Roach says.

That knowledge turned into a consultancy and education firm. She regularly teaches seminars on project management and helps businesses in need of that sort of help. She is also looking to expand into the education community by instructing teachers about idea mapping as part of their in-service training.
