Overall Satisfaction with MindManager

I extensively use MindManager in my work as a modeler and trainer. For example, I use it to create and publish concept maps and trainings. A recent feature is the ability to publish interactive mind-maps.
  • Strategic Planning
  • Brainstorming
  • Process Mapping
  • Education & Training
  • Knowledge Management
  • Meeting Management
  • Problem Solving
  • Task and Project Management
  • Project Planning
  • Creating mind maps and concept maps.
  • Providing an extensive set of templates to create different diagrams for many situations (e.g., strategic, project, and knowledge management).
  • Publishing maps that are accessible to anyone.
  • Ability to link maps.
  • Adding internal and external graphics to maps.
  • Ability to turn off auto-connection when topics in a free-form map get too close.
  • A more extensive internal graphics library.
  • Add a "causal loop diagram" template. It is a feedback diagram in System Dynamics.
  • Crystalized concepts.
  • Improved information access.
  • Developed published products (MindManager diagrams, themselves).
People have complemented the material on my Resources Maps page and my System Dynamics page. Meetings have gone well when we used MindManager to collect information or brainstorm.
I have evaluated no other products like MindManager.

Did implementation of MindManager go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy MindManager again?

Yes

Well-suited uses: brain-storming, creating knowledge maps, managing projects, etc. I use it to manage most of my personal information. However, I can only use it on my PC. Evernote is better at capturing information from the web using multiple platforms (PC, ipad, iphone). MindManager can help organize the concepts collected for articles and books.
