Overall Satisfaction with MindManager

My use of MindManager is not in any way problem specific. I find it helpful for working with any complex problem. In my experience, it helps me to clarify and refine my own thinking and organize my thoughts and express them visually so that they are more easily understood by others as well.
  • Strategic Planning
  • Brainstorming
  • Process Mapping
  • Education & Training
  • Problem Solving
  • Task and Project Management
  • Project Planning
  • The interface makes it very easy to use.
  • The fonts and design elements make the maps easy to read.
  • Exporting the maps to other formats is easy to do.
  • I would like to be able to click and drag some elements to make it easier to read. Some things can get bunched.
  • Always looking for templates from other users who are smarter than me.
  • I am more effective at explaining complex scenarios.
  • The program is much faster than me trying to create something in PowerPoint or by hand.
The program is very powerful and I confess that I am probably only benefitting from the tip of the iceberg when it comes to features available to me. Whether it is reimagining organizational charts to examining processes, the software is intuitive and helps me make my thoughts visual, and sometimes even visually appealing.
This is really the only one like this I have used. I have tried workarounds like InDesign, PowerPoint Photoshop, and others but there really is no comparison as this was built for exactly what I am trying to do.

This is the single best tool to help visual learners express themselves on complex matters in my opinion. I have tried and used other programs that have certain elements, but this is far and away from the best option for me. The more complex the problem, the more that using this pays off. I tend to start in almost brainstorming mode and then move to group items and either arrange them in terms of process flow or simply organizationally.
