Overall Satisfaction with MindJet MindManager

In my solo law practice technology consulting business, I use MindManager nearly every day to brainstorm, organize and present projects. It is especially effective at sorting out thoughts, issues and processes.
  • Outlining
  • Making relationships and issues visual
  • Reorganizing and condensing complex issues.
  • Allow multiple icons on topics, for additional emphasis
  • Constrain graphics size when importing to keep map from "exploding"
  • Export to Microsoft Word can work well, but a "receiving" template planned for MindManager content helps.
  • Clearer issue spotting and organization for writing.
  • Better meeting planning and execution.
  • Eliciting excitement about ideas.
I view MindManager in a class by itself. There are other mind mapping tools, but from brief tries, I find MindManager works best by itself, and in connection with Microsoft Office. Compared to outlining in Microsoft Word, for example, I always turn to MindManager first.
MindManager works best when beginning to think about an issue. While it can (and should) be used for presentation of ideas, it is not a replacement for writing a clear report. Often the MindMap serves as an outline that works along side written content.

MindJet has been vigorous about product improvement, and every version has brought new capability and excitement to the product.
