Thanks to the cross-platform productivity app iMindQ for sponsoring BrettTerpstra.com this week.
What is iMindQ?
To quickly summarize, iMindQ is the tool to inject instant productivity into your daily activities. With a smooth and flexible user interface, and vast array of mapping opportunities including mind maps, concept maps, flowcharts, WBS charts, organizational charts and other types of diagrams, iMindQ is the solution to clarify your thoughts, start your project plan and get the creative boost you need.
Inspire your inner creativity and brainstorm better
iMindQ is the perfect tool for single or group brainstorming. Being a technique that closely replicates the way our minds are wired mind maps are the best way to improve creativity. Next time you are brainstorming make sure you have iMindQ in front of you, and visualize your idea developing into a mind map which contains the solution you are looking for somewhere in its subtopics. Using iMindQ in your company’s brainstorming sessions will ensure your team members understand the topics which are up for debate, participate evenly and leave the session with unified meeting notes.
Go from Concepts to Action Plans
As soon as your group finishes the brainstorm sessions, iMindQ will help you organize your meeting notes and connect the ideas that collate with each other. As soon as you have set the goals into a sequential strategic plan, you can use iMindQ to create tasks, deadlines and resources for your action plans, and monitor the progress as the project develops.
Add Flexibility to your Project Planning
iMindQ also brings good news for project managers: you can turn your Mind Map into a Project Plan by creating a WBS from your deliverables and visually analyse the outcome using Gantt chart view. Communicating information with mind maps will ensure that the project team will understand the project plan and avoid the misunderstandings that can occur from working with different software solutions. Project managers can create a master mind map with all project related information to avoid document cluttering and never miss important information.
