MindManager is specifically helpful in creating taxonomy at an enterprise level. It is a good tool for collaboration as you can use different mind maps and brainstorm. This tool can also come in handy for keeping meeting notes and expanding on them later in further meetings. It will be very helpful in design and planning.

This is a good thing for medium/large companies for inside the company and/or for interacting with remote employees/freelancers. As the program facilitates the interaction between employees and managers it speeds up the distribution of tasks and allows managers to identify possible problems on the fly. For indie developers - it's a little expensive.

Pros

  • Great GUI and visuals
  • Excellent method for project planning and brainstorming

  • We tested the free version of the program. It improved communication within the team.
  • Allowed to trace performance and time spent on tasks. Each team member was aware of the status of the tasks and could plan their work.
  • Simplified interaction with managers, as it could present the results in the form of Gantt charts.

Cons

MindManager

  • I find formatting a challenge. Example, make all the boxes the same format and fonts so when you add a box, it understands the format of the top level box.
  • I have played around with some of the templates but find creating my own each time is better route. The project plan template is very good but I find myself deleting boxes and again, takes more time than creating a new map every time.
  • I try to get colleagues to use MM but they are intimidated by the UI. I am really comfortable with it but to them it can look more complex than it really is.

  • The program interface is overloaded. Especially when there is little time for a detailed description of the tasks.
  • I would like a faster way to publish the result at the completion of the task.
  • Projects and tasks are two different workspaces/pages. Personally, it would be more convenient to combine these things.

I feel the main issues of the old Mindjet seem to be gone with the
Corel purchase. With the huge advance of sharing via browser HTML even 1
user can affect many. And, actually, using MM kind of forced my rigid
brain to rethink how I categorize and classify information/projects.
The
idea of paying $69USD for an annual cost is more than fair and a great
model for Corel/Mindjet to keep rolling out improvements!

MindManager is very intuitive. The user interface is not cluttered and the ribbon icons are easy to understand. Several excellent "how-to" videos are available on the MindManager site as well as on YouTube. MindManager starts quickly and the user interface is very responsive. Launching other programs from MindManager such as Excel is very fast and issue free. The browsing feature is lightning fast. The drag-and-drop capability is also very fast and reliable.

The application is quick and responsive. We are able to produce mindmaps and reports with ease. The program is not complicated at all and integrates well with software and programs like Microsoft Outlook and Teams, which we truly appreciate.

I have called technical support a few times. During the COVID Crisis, I called a few times repeatedly due to a rush request. The technical support guy called me back in minutes. He somehow knew that I had called repeatedly and wanted to make sure my issue was resolved immediately

The videos are not well categorized...I had to do a bit of digging to get what I wanted and many videos on older versions. If Mindjet was to improve the titles used that would help.

Alternatives Considered

MindManager

Our network is fluid. Previously, we had used software that allowed us to make changes to a fiber route, ring diagram, etc. immediately. It was easy to maintain and update. It allowed the Planner/Engineer to be creative and tell a story with their Market Assignments. When we used Visio to show how equipment connects together, we found even an entry-level field tech could use this drawing and connect everything correctly the very first time. However, Visio is not available in MacOSX, I'm a Windows user but for some of my coworkers that means that they need a Virtual Machine to run Visio or not running Visio at all, making MindManager the obvious choice.

Trello was excellent, but we did not choose it because of the price and relatively positive feedback from employees using Orangescrum who wanted the easiest and fastest way to create reports so as not to be distracted from work (as a two-click report).

A team can collaborate on the same project but cannot create a shared project file. It would be helpful for that feature to be added.

Return on Investment

MindManager

  • Productivity - Shortening my thinking time to an outcome - when I have a problem to think through, my first choice is MindManager. It gives me the space to simply get everything down on the page and then sort it all out.
  • Quality - The quality of our thinking is improved when we think together using MindManager - we never stop at first answers and MindManager allows us to think deeper and find connections that were not previously considered.
  • Control - Often we will use MindManager to maintain a list of client requirements and success factors in a single place. This has helped us out many times from an engagement management and control standpoint.

  • It accelerated the work of the team, but the mastering of the program interface was slow.
  • The interface is not intuitive. It proved to be quite complicated.
  • For managers, the program has facilitated reporting and streamlined team tracking.
