Scientific research shows that our brains like to work using association and visual patterns. So it only makes sense to allow our minds to use these natural methods in the most efficient manner possible.
Mind maps are an ideal tool for brainstorming. They encourage our minds to use the natural process of association. Ideas develop in a more free-form manner; unlike the restrictive linear "laundry list" system most of us have been taught to use.
SmartDraw gives you fast, automated mind maps that are the perfect tool for brainstorming, planning, and managing information.
You can build a mind map three ways:
With our one-click compact formatting control, your mind map will fit into a small space and look more attractive—no matter the size or scale.
Brainstorm freely and if you want to make an idea actionable, you can easily connect your visual to any existing Trello board for your team and create a Trello card. Updates from Trello will be automatically reflected on your mind map too.
Project planning is often best done using a mind map. Brainstorm a to do list and arrange them into related groups. When you're ready, convert the fruits of your brainstorm into a functional project plan with assignments and due dates in just a single click. Changes made in one view will be automatically reflected in the other.
