In 2006, I published a landmark survey of mind mapping software users. Never before had anyone quantified how it was being used, or how much of a productivity increase was possible from utilizing this amazing type of productivity software.
This survey, conducted nearly four years later, was an opportunity to take a fresh snapshot of what you’re using, how you’re using it and the benefits it provides.
Topics covered in this valuable report include:
- The primary mind mapping program respondents use in their work
- The productivity increase that mind mapping software has enabled in their work
- The application for which respondents are using mind mapping software
- The biggest benefits they have experienced from it
- The factors that are holding mind mapping software back from being more widely adopted in business
- Data on how respondents share mind maps with their coworkers
For many of the survey questions, I benchmarked the results of the 2006 survey against this year’s responses, so you can see how the use of mind mapping software has evolved during the last four years.
