A recent topic of discussion in the Yahoo MindManager group has been a tool for MindManager called Visual Project Maps Pro. It acts like a "front end" for this popular mind mapping software program, by providing a dialog box where you can define the key parameters of your project. This "wizard" then generates a "project dashboard" with links to sub-maps for each aspect of your project. I strongly urge you to take a look at the demo of this tool, because it does a marvelous job of explaining what Visual Project Maps Pro does, and the elegance with which it does it. Once you have added content to the structure it creates for you, Visual Project Maps Pro also helps you to export your project data to Microsoft Project – very cool.
I can see how this program could be a real time-saver for project managers!
