Overall Satisfaction with MindManager

Mind Manager is used by a small group of people, but they're very dedicated to it. Mostly used for brainstorming and/or getting a handle on big-picture ideas in a very simple way. The total product is simple to use and quick to note ideas down on. Although it is a licensed product, there is a free reader version if you need to keep license costs down.
  • Strategic Planning
  • Brainstorming
  • Education & Training
  • Enterprise Collaboration
  • Meeting Management
  • Problem Solving
  • Project Planning
  • Different way to note ideas down, but very powerful.
  • Easy to use.
  • Easy to read other user's mindmaps.
  • Licensed product.
  • No viewer for all platforms.
  • New version yearly.
  • Saved time.
  • Allowed us to break down a large task to smaller parts to make it easier to handle.
  • Improved quality of our projects as a result.
Recently we've been going through a project to replace all of our mobile devices. We are able to use MindManager to build 'user stories' and what their requirements, then build a project around this to meet all of these needs. This is easy to explain and justify to management, allowing the project team to focus on implementing the projecting rather than justifying it.
I'm really not aware of any alternatives to MindManager!
Well suited to brainstorming or distilling big problems down to smaller parts to make it more easily manageable. It is actually fairly effective as a project planning tool. A downside is it can be difficult to share these files if users don't have (or know of) a viewer for the product.
