MindManager Services

One of the problems (in a good way :-) with MindManager is that it is so useful and can expedite so many different, every-day business tasks and processes, that it's difficult to pin down with words all the many ways in which we can help clients get the best from it. We've tried our best below :-).

About Our MindManager Services

Top

If you read about our ethos you will see that 2 of the things that make us most mad in life are:-

  • the waste of human resources through needless re-invention of wheels.

  • the failure of people and organisations to make the most of the knowledge resources that already exist so they can "stand on the shoulders of giants" and get more done, quicker, and more efficiently, which ultimately benefits us all. 

As individuals and employees we often can't really do much about the former as it is often an institutional failing that is foisted upon us. However the latter is frequently just due to the lack of suitable information management tools and training in how to use them at the individual level. Even though the information they need is out there, people can't lay their hands on it in the form they need, when they need it, so they can do what they are trying to do. Or worse still, don't even know the information they need already exists so they don't have to go and recreate it.

This could be for a variety of reasons but it is usually not because of lack of information itself. More likely it's the other way round - too much information, too much of which is irelevant "noise", kept in too many different places, in too many different formats for one person to keep track of let alone synthesise and act upon.

This is where MindManager, the worlds leading information ("mind") mapping software, comes in. We firmly believe that its intuitive to use, flexibile, productivity-boosting features enables people to :-

  • stay in control of their workflow and not feel overwhelmed by "information overload".

  • collaborate in disparate teams in a timely, efficient, transparent and inclusive manner.

  • make connections and gain business-intelligence insights they didn't have before.

  • take it to the next stage of being able to act upon their understanding of the information by giving them the means to brainstorm solutions, create implementation plans, work break-down structures and individual task lists etc., all within the same software environment that they discovered and synthesised the information in in the first place!

All this helps individuals and organisations save time & money, increase their return-on-investment, and ultimately get a lot more done with a lot less stress... :-).

It is our professional missions to offer our expertise and experience as MindManager products and services that help the rest of the world to do just that!

Bespoke MindManager Map Creation

Top

We love creating information maps and, due to the range of layouts, formatting tools and information embedding options that MindManager has compared to other information mapping software, these can take many different forms and fulfill many different purposes.

What we love most about our maps is that they provide a cartographically designed, "visual knowledge framework" that enable users to:-

  • discover information of potential use to them more intuitively.

  • put / keep it within a "bigger picture" context.

  • add thier newly discovered information to it and make it their own. For example our atlas maps and calendar maps help users organise information by geographic space and time.

Maps can be taken

 

  Public Domain Information Mapping

Section
Top

As part of our ongoing mission to "connect people with the information they need to know using maps (of all sorts)", we are creating useful (often funamental) knowledge framework maps of public domain information using Mindjet MindManager, and making them available on our online mapstore at www.knowledgemappers.com for the benefit of all.

As much as is possible our maps link to the definitive online source of the information, like an organisation / inititiative official website. They also link to Wikipedia articles if possible, to complete the virtuous circle of public knowledge (see our blog post).

There are 3 routes in to our Public Domain Information maps:-

"Off The Shelf" Maps - Available In Store

We have tried to make it is easy as possible to discover the maps on our site. Use the Map Categories menu on the top left of the page to browse our maps by :-

Icon_A-Z

by Subject Category - Drill down through the subject categories arranged A-Z.

Icon_Business

by Business - Maps that are of relevance to particular business processes or sectors. These will also be listed under a particuar subject category.

Icon_Level

by Geographic Area - Maps that pertain to a particular geographic area such as a country or region. These will also be listed under a particuar subject category.

Icon_Free

Free maps - Contrary to received wisdom there is such a thing as a free map!

Icon_Coming_Soon

Coming Soon - Maps that are currently in production but not yet ready for sale will be listed here. There will be a product page and description for them but probably no images. Maps will be listed as "out of stock" and it will not be possible to add them to your shopping cart, but it will be possible for you to add them to your Wishlist.

Icon_Author

Map Author - Maps are listed here by name of the author. Cuirrently this is just Knowledge Maapers but we hope to add to our range of contributers in the future.

Icon_Latest

New Arrivals - Maps that have been added to the site recently will be listed here as well as under the other categories

Users obviously will also have the option of a Free text search of the map descriptions using the search box at the top of each page.

 

 

Coming Soon -

The Coming Soon page of our mapstore lists all our maps that are currently “in production”. This is a slightly wooly concept as it encompasses maps that are still at the idea stage, to those that are at the final stages of completion, and all points in between.

However as they are fond of saying in TV talent shows these days, the maps in our Coming Soon page are listed “in no particular order” in terms of what's next off the production line. Thus if you see a map there that you are keen to get your hands on, then get in touch and we will make it a priority to make it available in the store for you as soon as we can.

 

Request A Map

However if you’re desperate for a particular public domain information map and it’s not listed in our current catalogue or our Coming Soon page, then we will be happy to create it for you if the information is “out there” in the public domain to be mapped.

 

 

 

 

 

We can also create bespoke maps from your own / your organisations information, be it work processes and/or professional knowledge (such as in blogs), documents & files (such as SharePoint sites), or data (in spreadsheets and databases). With our cartographic knowledge and expertise with MindManager and it’s many add-ins that extend its functionality, we can map anything!



 

 

Business Information Mapping

With our information cartography skills and experience, let us "map your world" for you. We can create the dashboards, framework maps, map parts and templates to get you started in using MindManager to manage your world and make it a better place.

If you have your own information that you need to share amongst your employees, customers or fellow community members, we can turn it into knowledge map resources that will help you do this :-

    Document projects and Initiatives (perhaps stored on SharePoint sites) so you can find the information resources you need sooner, as well as raise awareness and buy-in from stakeholders.

    Create easy to use digital directories of organisations, people networks and communities, which can also serve as structural diagrams as well as educational and awareness raising resources.

    Capture and document your own organisations knowledge before it gets lost (when the only person who knows retires to the South of France, leaves to work for your rival and / or gets run over by the proverbial bus (are the 2 events connected?).

Please contact us directly to discuss your requirements.

MindManager Map Audits & Optimisation

Top

Information mapping is a great tool, but just like anything else it takes time & practice to develop your skills and your own way of doing things that works best for you and your organisation. In the process  a lot of maps can be created that can get a bit out of control if left unchecked, especially if there are a lot of engaged and enthusiastic MindManager users involved!

Let us use our expertise to audit your existing MindManager map libraries and map-making processes and suggest ways in which they can be streamlined to maximise your efficiency.

Please contact us directly to discuss your requirements.

 

 

MindManager Macro & Add-in Development

Top

MindManager is already a great digital information mapping software tool “out of the box”, but it is also currently the only one of its type that has a rich, well documented API (Application Programming Interface). This makes it possible to develop macros and add-ins that greatly extend its capabilities in bespoke ways.

  • "Off-the-shelf" - There is already a great range of "off-the-shelf" MindManager add-ins available, most of which have been created by fellow members of the Mindjet International Value Added Partner network. We can offer help and advice in using these add-ins to extend the benefits you get from MindManager.

  • Custom - We can also commission the creation of new add-ins on your behalf from our partners once we understand what it is you wish to achieve (see our wheel re-invention abhorence above ;-).

Please contact us directly to discuss your requirements.
