Using Mind Mapping Software to Organise your Business – Wiki Maps

Unfortunately MindManager does not have a Wiki facility but you can answer the question “Please give examples of how you use it in your business?” by adding comments to this blog.

If you have Mindomo or MindMeister accounts you will be able to edit the maps below. I will be using the maps as examples of collaboration in my presentation on Thursday entitled “Using Mind Mapping Software to Organise your Business” at Wired Wessex in Winchester, UK.

    Hi Andrew,

    when you copied the mindomo embedded code you introduced some html break “” in between, you just need to eliminate those and the mindomo map will show up with the right size.

    Thanks,
    Zoltan.

    My partner and I often work remotely – 2 home offices an hour apart. When we begin a project, we often brainstorm on the phone – one of us captures the brainstorm in a mmap and once done attempts to organize topics. We then share the map and discuss what else to add, how best to reorg, etc. We like the approach so much that we are doing a trial of Catalyst. The PC guy likes it – maps open in Mindmanager on the PC and are stored in cyberspace. The Mac guy finds it poorly implemented – he can’t use his copy of mindmanager on his mac and must work in the catalyst space. Still, we share maps in a larger variety of applications.
    1. we have a map for each client with all information about the client, communications, engagement details, etc. in the map.
    2. We have a map for the presentations we do – with branches for each topic. We link to docs we store on Google Docs.
    3. We have an ongoing agenda – joint work at one level for the most important items to do while together (or on the phone together), and items broken into categories – hot, warm, cool. Within those categories we break things into work categories (ala David Allen) – phone, office, etc.
    4. We have a workspace (and several to many maps) for admin, marketing, documents (just links to the document locations).

    I wanted to put this stuff on your map – but Mindomo seems so slow that I gave up.

    We think and talk about doing this with clients, to define goals of engagements, etc. but we have yet to take that step. For us, the computer interferes with the interpersonal relationships.
