MindManager is a project management suite created by MindJet. There are versions of MindManager for Windows and Mac. The idea behind this application is to provide information visualization, that will allow project managers to identity potential issues of a project. The application includes several tools for different areas of project management. This includes meetings, organization chars, project flow charts, to-do lists, status reports, among others. Once the data has been entered into the program, the program allows you to input changes and updates on the project, and all the areas of the program connect with each other (Meetings section gathers data from the calendar and from the Human Resources directory). However, to set everything up you will have to spend quite some time reading the tutorials and guides included, because the options you have are just overwhelming. However, the program has a nice intuitive interface.
If you are managing a large project and you often find yourself lost in thousands of memos and notes, then this program is definitely for you.
- Lots of options in one package.
