Glasgow, UK (PRWEB UK) 26 June 2013
MindGenius has always been recognized as a brainstorming and planning tool for business, more so than as a mind mapping tool. Now with the release of MindGenius Version 5 on Tuesday, 4th June 2013, those capabilities have been extended to make the product a cost effective, end to end project management solution for all business professionals.
Most organizations provide their project managers with the tools and the formal training on both the recommended methodologies and the use of those tools to enable them to successfully manage their projects. Many organizations will mandate the formal training, with their project managers going on to achieve professional qualifications.
MindGenius have recognized though that outside of formal project management most people in business also work on projects and have increasing project management responsibilities; however, these workers are generally not provided with exposure to the methodologies and common approaches or indeed provided with the tools that would help them with their projects. Often the result can be that inconsistent and inefficient approaches to project management across the business are developed.
These 'project managers’ are regularly in and out of projects and require a simple solution that doesn't require re-training each time they return to or begin a new project. MindGenius provides a simple cost effective project management tool that users can adopt as a way of working throughout the project lifecycle.
Using MindGenius and the templates included in Version 5 of the product will lead the user through, brainstorming for requirements gathering, projects risks and problem solving, help them manage meetings from project kick-off to retrospectives and enable them to develop project scope and Gantt charts to manage projects to a successful end.
MindGenius customer, Amanda O'Neil, Operations Supervisor, Gael Ltd said: “MindGenius is used for project coordination with our larger customers and is ideal for providing project timelines, resource allocation and key milestones for each project we work on. The best thing about using it is using the map to build the project plan which is far easier than anything I have used before, and then converting this to the Gantt view which is quick and easy to do. We had one of our biggest customers Siloam Hospitals specifically ask for their project plan in MindGenius because they prefer the ease of changing items around within the project map which automatically updates the Gantt view."
"With MindGenius 5, the new project reports are used for review at key stages of the project to see what tasks have been completed and are ideal for giving the customer an indication on how on track we are with their project."
"Overall being able to just make 1 change on the map which is then rolled out to the Gantt view and project report is a great time saver.”
MindGenius remains the most intuitive Mind Mapping software designed for business. A free 30 day trial of MindGenius 5 is available from http://www.mindgenius.com.
