Ideation

Not an experience based deductive approach, but rather a creativity based inductive approach to organizing information.  Additionally, using collaboration increases group’s thinking power facilitated by simply creating, editing and grouping that naturally lead to more creative ideas and directions. MindMapper also offers brainstorming templates such as radiant associating, radiant association, attribute listing, fishbone, SWOT analysis, backward reasoning, and forced connection.

Planning

Daily activities at home, work, and school involve a little planning. They are all small projects carried out to achieve successful end results. The key to this success is logically breaking down main activities with sub-activities that are doable in a given timeframe. Mind maps are great for planning projects, events, problems, and even concepts. Creating WBS has never been this simpler.

Meetings

  1. Map out key agendas before the meeting
  2. List meeting contents with keywords
  3. Group or denote contents with relevance
  4. Use the legends to display confirmed items and relationship lines to display relation.
  5. After the meeting is over, convert the map to MS Word for reporting and distribution purpose.

Project Management

Organize tasks, denote persons in charge, status, and schedule. View project schedule using the Gantt chart and use the calendar to view other schedules.

Information Visualization

Create a map to connect frequently used files or only the necessary information from a countless number of files and information scattered across your computer and internet. You can access them much easier and quicker. Also, you can hide topics that you do not use often to clear up mapping space.

Learning

Utilize goal and time management feature coupled with mapping benefits to enhance self-directed learning.  Map out lessons, hyperlink information, schedule activities and projects, review them on the go with mobile devices, implement with the calendar so that learning becomes the goal and time-based visual information for longer retention and creative applications.

Annual Plans

Organize and plan for your special days, vacations, hobbies, events, and more with a full view of work schedule and projects. You can insert memos, images, and hyperlinks so that you are not only managing daily schedules but also an annual plan.

Note Taking

Instead of writing note in a linear format, why not write in non-linear visual format of a mind map. Write down key ideas and concepts and easily arrange them to make more sense. Add detailed information, images, legends, hyperlinks, relationship lines to fully understand the note. Try it while taking notes from books, lectures, seminars, meetings, and online learning courses.

Writing

Brainstorm for ideas and topics. Develop storylines, plan out essays, fill in the details, try out new approaches, add images for inspirations, and visually rearrange and make revisions. Easily come up with an outline in mind map format. Convenience of easily creating and rearranging ideas visually is ideal for facilitating creative writing process without hindering the creative flow. Also coming up with an outline for essays, books, thesis, and even dissertations can dramatically improve the writing process.
