7. Project Management
Planning a project with a mind map allows tasks to be arranged starting with large
categories and broken into smaller pieces. This refinement of tasks makes it much easier
when it comes time to assigning, budgeting, and estimating timing. Plus, when you use a
SmartDraw mind map, you can convert it into a Gantt chart with a single click or assign any idea or action item using Trello®.
Mind maps work extremely well in presentation settings. Using mind map diagrams,
rather than bullet-point lists, is a more interesting way to present information.
SmartDraw mind maps are also easy to import into PowerPoint®, MS Word®, and Google Docs®, and more.
9. Evaluating Situations
Sometimes problems arise and require assessment. A mind map is a good tool for this purpose. It allows you to explore various aspects of the problem, and group them into related areas. Thinking and recording such a situation visually in this manner can also stimulate finding solutions.
10. Taking Notes
In meetings, classrooms, online programs, and for general everyday use, mind maps are a fast, effective way to take notes.
