Overall Satisfaction with MindManager

Used just by me in preparation for workshops where we need to brainstorm and validate a variety of topics.
  • Strategic Planning
  • Brainstorming
  • Education & Training
  • Problem Solving
  • Project Planning
  • Ease of use on the fly when a group is working live.
  • Nice aesthetics such that maps can be shown in final deliverables.
  • The right amount of functionality.
  • Pop-up tips as you go.
  • Format options that change everything to a pre-defined format.
  • Remove the constant pop-up reminders to upgrade.
  • Faster time to outcomes
  • Clearer objectives
  • Well-defined priorities
In a recent project, we had to design a digital playbook for a sales force. To do so we wanted to capture a set of key strategic initiatives that buyers care about. In the process of discovery interviews, we began using MindManager to capture hierarchical topics. Then, during a live workshop, we were able to elaborate upon the list and re-organize on the fly.
Mindmanager is far more robust and seems to be built for a larger landscape than the smaller apps. The ability to create new topics via the keyboard makes adding/changing concepts very fast; these capabilities just cannot be achieved on a phone app. At the same time, MindManager makes it easy to export, etc.
MindManager is very well suited for scenarios where you are attempting to organize categorical information, present it to a group, and then subsequently engage in group brainstorming to determine next steps. The response is typically very positive and people want to know what software is being used so they can use as well.
