Mindjet MindManager is a unique program aimed at business people keeping track of complicated projects with objectives that change on the fly. While this program offers users a chance to streamline their world, it is not something people can leap directly into and operate.
This program's main objective is project management. The goal is to provide a free-flowing chart, making even the most complex goals visible. This is accomplished through a flexible set of tools to map agendas, priorities, people working on the project, deadlines, and more, all with the ability to update and change.
MindManager is a complicated program that will take many hours of practice to perfect. While it is organized like Microsoft Office programs and may be semi-intuitive, there are so many options, that a new user may be lost. Fortunately, the program comes with a helpful tutorial that walks you through the many options available.
MindManager has the ability to really help users get organized, but even with the tutorial, the sheer number of commands and buttons can be overwhelming. We would have liked to see a slightly longer trial period than the standard 30 days, just so users could get their bearings using the tool. In addition, the flow chart the program creates may be unlike anything co-workers have used and will take time on their side to understand what each box, line, and symbol mean. However, if you are looking for a dynamic way to organize projects and are willing to put in the work, MindManager could be the answer.
MindManager 8 enables you to capture, organize, and communicate information using an intuitive visual canvas. The map is a visual diagram that imitates the creator's thoughts, with the interactive benefits of embedded data, live hyperlinks, collaboration capabilities, and much more. MindManager is an indispensable fifth productivity application, along with the word processor, spreadsheet, presentation, and e-mail. While integrating with and augmenting all of these applications, MindManager 8 enables you to capture, organize, and act upon limitless ideas, data and knowledge without ever leaving your mind map. Millions of successful people use MindManager to manage projects, develop plans, create presentations, and accomplish a limitless number of other tasks. Track your projects with greater ease with automated calculations of task progress. And now communicate your vision and ideas by transforming your map into a clickable, interactive Adobe PDF or Flash file. Combine MindManager with MindManager Web to collaborate online, share documents in secure workspaces, and conduct Web conferences. Work smarter, and transform your ideas into action more quickly.
