Convert a book into MindManager

Overall Satisfaction with MindManager

I use mind manager to organize content of reference books and create value charts.
  • Strategic Planning
  • Brainstorming
  • Process Mapping
  • Problem Solving
  • Dynamically organize information.
  • Help identify strategy gaps.
  • Maintaining mind maps in the cloud.
  • Improved process mapping.
  • Support for Scrum.
  • Organized content needed for consulting.
  • Improved strategic planning.
  • Ability to quickly find information.
I took the BABOK guide and completely transferred all the content, text, chapters and illustrations into a mind map. I can see relationships between various chapters much more easily.
Not applicable, I only use MindManager.
Very well suited for organizing content. I took content of book and dynamically organized chapters by relationships. Still a bit difficult to do process mapping and Scrum.
