The EdrawMind Mind Mapping Tool lets you collaborate and plan with others easier.
Good ideas are a dime a dozen. Even cheaper, in fact. Many of us have several good ideas a day, and since they often go unrealized, we’re practically giving them away for free.
The trick is in turning those good ideas into actual business plans or products, and that’s where even the most seasoned entrepreneurs have trouble. And while collaboration can often refine those ideas, it can also muddy the waters. It’s hard enough to bottle that lightning out of your own brainstorms, much less keep your focus when there are several good ideas competing for attention.
That’s why EdrawMind might be the most important tool your team can use. There are tons of ways for workers to communicate online, but this app is one that lets them truly collaborate, making it easier for everyone involved to capture those “eureka” moments and improve on them.
Mind maps are nothing new, but what EdrawMind does is turn them into a rich playground of ideas, rather than one entrepreneur’s sandbox. With this app, everybody can work on the same map in real-time, adding ideas and comments and narrowing down what works.
The interface really is the key here. Even if you’ve never heard of a mind map, EdrawMind lets you get comfortable within minutes. Choose from a vast number of templates that allow you to create and configure flowcharts, Gantt charts, and almost any kind of organizational framework you can think of. Topics can be moved anywhere, linked to other ideas, and edited—all on the fly.
The software runs on all the popular operating systems, so no matter what platform you’re using to communicate you can bring the team along. Afterward, save your map to the cloud or share it as any number of file types.
