Overall Satisfaction with MindManager

It is used by my department to map out solutions to problems, brainstorm new ideas, and initially map out processes.
  • Strategic Planning
  • Brainstorming
  • Process Mapping
  • Meeting Management
  • Problem Solving
  • Project Planning
  • Easy to move ideas around allowing you to group your team's ideas during a meeting.
  • De-clutters the meeting room, making it easier to see everyone's ideas.
  • For process mapping, the tool makes it easy to add steps to the diagram.
  • Stop having advertisements randomly pop up in Window's 10. Annoying.
  • Improve notes area, making it easier to see notes without selecting the icon.
  • Improve relationships so that you can show relationships and boundaries across multiple icons that are not in the same tree.
  • Improve linkage to Microsoft applications so that updates from Excel, Access, or PowerPoint show up automatically.
  • Saved time.
  • Improved brainstorming and problem resolution.
  • Improved initial project scope activities.
We use this tool a lot for mapping out processes. We will take an initial process flow, usually completed in Visio) and map out a new process using Mind Manager. We ultimately go back to Visio for the final product, but MindManager makes the mapping discussions and change management much easier. Visio offers more specifics icons, etc. for detailed process documentation.
Visio, and to some extent, Lucid Charts, are better for formal process documentation. MindManager excels in note taking, brainstorming, and collaboration against all of these solutions.

Yes

Are you happy with MindManager's feature set?

Yes

Did MindManager live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of MindManager go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy MindManager again?

Yes

Meeting collaboration, note-taking, initial process design, initial project scope, and rollout. Not as well suited for detailed project management. Tasks are difficult to manage outside of MindManager and therefore double-entry becomes a requirement.
