Overall Satisfaction with MindManager

In our organization, we use MindManager as an alternative tool/method to display interdependences. This helps on one hand in understanding complex topics and on the other hand, gives structure and indicates gaps. The automatic layout function saves a lot of time especially when the full picture (because of the complex topic) is not known in the beginning.
  • Brainstorming
  • Knowledge Management
  • Problem Solving
  • Automatic layouting when entering more/new items
  • Additional information can be added to the items
  • Easy handling by automation
  • Multiple connections (n to n)
  • Export functionality
  • More easily co-editing (compare with Mural, Miro, Whiteboard etc.)
  • Safes time
  • Helps discussions more focussed
  • Identifies gaps which might have been overseen
We use the tool for various topics. One example was the collection of technologies that were structured into areas. It helped to identify gaps and redundancies. To use it as a thesaurus was another project, but it became quite complicated as the items had multiple connections. Here we see some potential to improve.

Microsoft Teams, Navisite Productivity and Collaboration (Microsoft Office 365 and MDM), Visual Team Workspace - Whiteboard for Confluence
The MindManager tool is very useful for complex topics as it grows dynamically with the maturity of work. It shows enough flexibility as the full picture is not known at the beginning. More templates like Kanban charts would help in broader usage of tools. More flexibility in export functions would make it easier to integrate into our business processes.
