One of the easiest ways to plan a project is with a mind map. Unfortunately, a mind map isn't as effective a tool for tracking and viewing progress as a Gantt chart. But having to re-enter the data from a mind map into a Gantt chart is a huge waste of time and energy.
That's why SmartDraw lets you use both a mind map and Gantt chart and shares the data between them. Enter your project data in either diagram, then simply toggle between them. All of your data updates automatically.
The short video below shows how easy it is to create a project plan with SmartDraw. Plan your project with a mind map and then convert it into a Gantt chart with one click. Assign and manage tasks. You can even link tasks to a Trello® board for increased accountability.
