Overall Satisfaction with MindManager

My primary use is in project planning, idea generation and brainstorming with a priority of seeing the range of relationships and connections possible for prioritizing and managing projects and engaging in a process of innovation. MindManager is a core tool for our operation which I have used for over 20 years. Each annual update adds helpful tools that make it an even more effective planning and innovation tool.

MindManager has been a great tool for developing presentations and providing specific examples in the tool, while also providing a range of creative design options, which has been an effective way to memorize what is being presented. Some of the tools allow for prioritizing steps in project completion, with the option of creative colors and formatting, which adds to the planning and creative process. Expanded content can also be easily linked to a text box.

Great for project planning tied to daily operations, as well as medium and long term visioning. MindManager serves as an effective brainstorming and idea generation that aids in planning, problem solving, and timely decision making. MindManager also provides a creative way to do daily work, and to think in the bigger picture for strategic planning. It is not as effective with substantive knowledge management.
