Getting the most out of MindManager 7-templates, styles, and ribbons

MindManager 7 Pro brought the Office 2007 look and feel to MM users, but the Ribbon Bar might get annoying for some people.  Brain Friedlander has a quick movie on saving space:
Many of us are really enjoying the new Fluid Ribbon Interface in MindManager 7, which has made the program much more accessible. However, there are times when we […]

Should I take notes on my computer or on paper?

I think this must be one of the key questions facing workers right now.  Silly you think?  Okay, you go into a meeting, you know that information is going to be shared that you need to remember or you are going to be given a task (or three), so how do you record said information […]

MindManager 7 is shipping-try it now

I got an e-mail from the folks at MindJet today letting me know that MM7 was now available. Disclosure: Because of my participation in the beta and other MM7 events I received a free license to MM7 Pro.
MindManager 7 helps users and workgroups “mind map” — lay out concepts and manage information visually. The technique […]

MindManager Project management map

Gotta love the folks at MindJet. As the count-down continues (4 more days!) until MM7 is released, here is a great map idea-use a drafting table metaphor.
You can, and I would suggest, taking it to the next level. Dart board? Cork board? I think with the right background image you can […]

MindManager 7 announced-steady improvement on a great tool

Man I’ve been dying to blog about this for over a month.  I’ve been in the private beta test of the new MindManager 7 Pro.  If you’re a MM fan, this is a good upgrade.  Must upgrade?  If you use Office 2007, I’d say yeah.
The new MM 7 Pro is officially coming out May 30.  […]

Mindsystems ThemeReader-An exciting new add-on for MindManager

 I got an e-mail from Tom Hodgers today.  Remember him?  Yeah he was one of our contest winners.  It sounds like Tom has been getting into MindMager and told me about a really cool new MM add-on called ThemeReader.  Here is how Mindsystems describes it:
Mindsystems ThemeReader™ is the latest edition to the MindManager® family of […]

My Idea Board

I am fortunate that I have a large white board where I work that I can use for…whatever. At the end of 2006, I was staring at the white board, noting how much stuff was still showing up on the board even after being erased.
So I got out the cleaning spray and cleaned off all […]

If MindManager isn’t for you, maybe try Freemind for mindmapping

Liz Strauss has a guest post from Grigor Ćorić on mindmapping.  Grigor recommends FreeMind as an alternative to commercial mindmapping tools.  Okay, I’ve tried FreeMind and I didn’t like it. I was spoiled already by MindManager from MindJet.  Hobie Swan introduced me to MindManager and gave me a license to use.  MindJet is also one […]

Have you used PersonalBrain?

One of the commenters on Kelly’s post that I just blogged about recommended an app I’ve used before, but haven’t tried for a while: PersonalBrain.  This is an app that you have to see to understand.  Essentially it’s very much like mind mapping, but the way the app does it is pretty innovative.  As you […]

Brainstorming doesn’t fix problems

I don’t know about you, but I love to brainstorm ideas. Big ones, small ones, ideas that will help a company and ideas that will help me. Ideas, though, are just the beginning of a process where we have our ideas translate into something that is finished.
The brainstorming role, then, is to come up with […]
