MindManager For Brainstorming & Planning


MindManager maps are like virtual whiteboards that promote more creative thinking. Brainstorming sessions with MindManager are more productive because you can focus on gathering great ideas, and just drag-and-drop to create an organized plan. Quickly build on your ideas then assign tasks, establish priorities, and insert documents and links with just a click:-

  • Think Visually with Mind Maps - Mind Mapping enables you to visually capture ideas in brainstorming sessions, then organize and prioritize them in a relevant way that boosts understanding. You start with a central theme, and then add branches with different ideas, notes, attachments, links, and images to enhance your concepts and ideas.

  • Set Priorities and Take Action - Prioritize your work and add action items right into the mind map, then assign tasks and timeframes to make your maps become live project dashboards where you can track progress against your deadlines.

  • MindManagaer Maps are Easier than Spreadsheets - Better than spreadsheets or lists, MindManager maps are interactive diagrams that let everyone see the big picture while keeping the details in context. Drag-and-drop editing makes it easy to re-organize ideas by topic or quickly change direction.

  • MindManager Inspires Innovation - Use the Guided Brainstorming feature to inspire new ways of thinking that drive you and your team to consider alternative approaches and solutions. Choose from predefined challenges and questions cards that help you categorize ideas and work through hurdles when you hit a mental roadblock.

MindManager For Events & Meetings


MindManager’s visual format makes it easy to plan your meeting / event in advance:-

  • Get Started Quickly - Built-in map templates help you quickly lay out the essential elements of your event plan. Use MindManager as a virtual whiteboard to brainstorm goals, themes, and venue ideas. Just drag and drop topics to organize the details, and then add attachments and links to keep crucial information in reach.

  • Interactive Budgeting - Itemizing event budgets in the context of the plan helps everyone see the impact that individual changes have on the overall budget. MindManager automatically calculates planned and actual costs in a visual format that’s much easier to follow than a spreadsheet.

  • Gain Alignment on Assignments - Map out deliverables, due dates, dependencies and resources so everyone knows what they are doing, and when. And stay on track at a glance with graphic markers that clearly highlight priorities, completion status, and new information.

MindManager’s visual format makes it easy to prep the participants beforehand so they come prepared  with all the documents and information they need in order to add more value to your meeting / eventfor everybody and they leave ready to take action:-

  • Detailed Visual Agendas - Successful meetings start with agendas created in MindManager’s hierarchical format. Everyone can quickly see how the details relate to the top priority agenda items. Participants can prepare in advance for meaningful conversations, and it’s easy to incorporate feedback into the meeting map. Add notes and attach files from team members so you’ll have everything in one place during live meetings.

  • Productive Conversations - Mind maps let you share ideas on a virtual whiteboard where you can add everyone’s contribution in real time and then distribute a complete set of notes immediately after the meeting. MindManager lets you highlight meaningful connections and clearly prioritize needs while you build out ideas. A meeting mind map is a sharable, organized, and understandable record of your conversation.

  • Clarify Action Items - Quickly move from planning to execution by assigning tasks, priorities, and deadlines right in the meeting map. Comments and decisions can be documented so everyone is prepared for next steps, and participants leave the meeting knowing what’s happening, who’s assigned to each task, and when action items are due.

During your meeting:-

  • Create Better Presentations - Automatically create slides from MindManager mind maps to quickly create high-impact presentations. And changes that are made in slideshow mode are reflected in the map, so you can easily make on-the-fly changes while presenting your plans.

MindManager For Projects


Successful project management depends on effective management of expectations and commitments. MindManager mind mapping software helps you keep teams in alignment on the decisions and tradeoffs that determine if a project will meet goals and deadlines. Create a blueprint for your project by defining goals, prioritizing issues, capturing stakeholder input, and validating requirements—all in one application:-

  • Visualize Goals - Clearly defining goals and prioritizing issues means getting input—and more importantly, buy-in—from the entire team. MindManager mind maps give project teams a virtual whiteboard for brainstorming where every idea and concern can be surfaced and cataloged. MindManager maps help teams think visually so they can quickly lay out deliverables and identify any gaps in the plan.

  • Validate Requirements - Adequately validating requirements is the first step to ensuring project success. Quickly capture stakeholder input in a format that encourages participation. Verify decisions by visually ordering and reordering topics, drilling down to review details, and using priority markers to provoke essential trade-off discussions.

  • Manage Resources - Use MindManager mind maps to create detailed process maps to intelligently allocate resources and identify dependencies. MindManager helps everyone involved see the big picture and all the details in context. And if needed, you can export straight to Microsoft Project.

  • Adjust and Optimize - Quickly make adjustments when schedules and resources change. The task roll-up feature shows the overall impact of changes to assignments and dependencies so that everyone can understand (and respond to) the implications of schedules and budgets. Integrated Gantt charts provide a timeline view of your schedule.

  • Agree on Budgets - Create and manage project budgets in the project mind map alongside priorities and schedules—all in one place. Use the Autocalc feature to quickly set up formulas throughout your map and use the formula editor to add more sophisticated calculations. Conduct “what if” analyses by dragging topics into or out of the formula’s range to immediately adjust the calculations.

  • Be Prepared - MindManager helps you get started faster with project map templates and pre-built map topics for creating project charters, plans, status, and timelines. Once you create a project, you can save your working mind map as a custom template to guide future work, reducing the time needed to start your next project. And if projects require Six Sigma processes, integrating maps into Six Sigma programs provides much-needed visual support for planning, brainstorming, and meeting management.

MindManager For Agile


Operating in an agile way means working iterations, delivered by small, multi-disciplinary teams, in response to end-user stories and feedback, within regular and relatively brief time windows, rather than fully fledged output delivered long after the original brief has been superceded by events. It means a lot of information gathering, organisng, sharing, synthesising and collaborating "on the hoof".

MindManager is the ideal digital information tool for all aspects of the agile development process, from the initial collection of user stories to the end delivery. Think of it as an infinite project board where you can pan out to see the "big picture" or drill down to the smallest details behind the summary scrawl of a sticky note.
