Overall Satisfaction with MindJet MindManager

I utilize MindJet whenever we are facing a complex issue with multiple variables. Often times the simple process of visualizing ideas, dependancies and constraints with the simple ability to drag and drop results in the solution falling out. I find it useful in a variety of applications from product development, to personnel planning to even personal projects.
  • Clean drag and drop features. Frequently the initial construction turns out to not be the best, and moving single pieces or entire sections is very simple.
  • The visualizations of items and connections along with the ability to customize is fabulous.
  • Tremendously appreciate the keyboard shortcuts.
  • Collaboration can be challenging due to the learning curve.
  • Better prepared for "unintended consequences" sometimes we have a good idea of a situation, but once we visualize it the potential pitfalls are evident.
Different applications, I will use both depending on the product.
It does not make sense to use this in all projects at all times. I would not recommend it for simple or linear problems. It is great for complex multifaceted situations.
