Overall Satisfaction with MindManager

MindManager is being used by me personally. My company does not use the software.

I use it to lay out diagrams of books that I study for certification exams that are a part of the job I do teaching. It helps give me a good picture of everything I need to know to pass these exams.
  • Process Mapping
  • Education & Training
  • Knowledge Management
  • It lays out information in a hierarchy that makes it easy to understand.
  • Colors and designs make presentations quite pleasant to look at.
  • It has great exporting features to export to HTML so everyone can view a map at their convenience.
  • In the org chart, I have not figured out (if possible) to add a side bar (e.g. the president's secretary reports to the president, but vice presidents don't report to her).
  • Better printing functionality (I know it's difficult with large maps, but more than 2 page height would be good).
  • Sorry, no other complaints. Program is excellent for my uses.
  • Saved time in studying for exams.
  • Gives me a visual outlay of the topics.
  • I love going back and looking at old maps to refresh my memory on things I've learned.
I have used MindManager extensively for studying for both certification exams, and for preparing presentations for work. It gives me:
  • an orderly view of everything I need to accomplish
  • it opens and closes different branches as necessary
  • allows me to design maps that are easy to read and share with others
It is a great solution!
Project is OK for scheduling things, but it lacks the free space concepts that MindManager brings to the table. Project has some characteristics that are better than MindManager, but overall, MindManager is much more flexible and easier to use for other things beside projects. It is a much better program for the type of things I do, both at work and at other activities I'm involved in.
In education, very appropriate to lay out courses. You can lay them out by chapter, topics, or any other breakdown you choose. Within them, you can put details you need to cover in each one, and then break them down as far as you want. It is a great map for the entire course that grows as much as you need it to (no width or height restrictions). You can be as detailed as you want to be.
