Likelihood to Recommend

MindManager

It is very well-suited for introducing topics and concepts e.g. taking a 200 page study and reducing it to a single map with key concepts and key data for initial discussion with a team interested in working on that topic. Good for a small group discussion (less than 15 members).Not so well suited for discussion with a larger group (too much detail) but the "one-button" translation of maps to powerpoint works well with the larger groups.

Xmind

Xmind is suitable for a brainstorming session. For example, when we are trying to formulate a new product or service, we utilize Xmind to capture our considerations. Xmind is also suitable for customer engagement, and taking note of customer concerns in a single view. With Xmind, employees could summarize a complex problem in a short glance. Xmind is less appropriate for a customer presentation, where descriptions and long elaboration are required, as it is in the form of bullet points, rather than a paragraph

Cons

MindManager

  • Over the 9+ years that I have been using MindManager, the application has added all functionality that I have longed for. My biggest one was having to use Microsoft Visio whenever I needed to create a flowchart. Now flowcharts are included as a map type, so I'm good.

Xmind

  • A few steps are needed to mark a label for each customized branch.
  • Branch customization, such as line width and style, could be improved.
  • Customization, such as a different shape of nodes, would be good.

Xmind

It has a different form. Trello is good for task management. Xmind will give an overall connection between different tasks and how all the tasks interconnect to each other. The reminder function in Trello is good to keep track. However, a bird's eye view in Xmind will put conversations into context, and ease the navigation of any discussions.
