It also provides tips on how to get the best results with each type of map.
Are you thinking about investing in mind mapping software, but don’t know which program to choose? Then you should download the 2017 Mind Mapping Software Comparison Chart. It enables you to compare the features and functionality of 9 popular mind mapping programs, side-by-side, on over 140 features.
One of the best ways to enjoy the productivity-enhancing benefits of mind mapping software is to employ it to create a dashboard map. In much the same way that the dashboard on your automobile consolidates all of the key data you need to operate it in one convenient location, a dashboard mind map gives you a similar at-a-glance view of the information and data that is most important to you.
