About This Course

This course first covers MindManager: How to Map, the basic of MindManager Pro 7. Additionally, it addresses how to use MindManager for the Creation and Use of Dashboards, Planning & Running Meetings, Developing Effective Communications and Planning & Managing Projects. The last topic will cover Extending Microsoft Office with MindManager. There is also a section on additional resources that you can utilize after the fact to assist you to achieve your personal Value of an Hour.

By using the Value Features in MindManager users can find at least three more hours a week. For the average person, that translates into over 18 work days per year in productivity gains. For companies, these types of productivity gains can mean savings of millions of dollars. It’s not enough to preach about time-saving theories. In order to realize practical productivity gains, it is necessary to know how and when to use MindManager’s Value Features. The underlying concepts of MindManager are based on the work of Dr. Roger Sperry, who together with David Hunter Hubel and Torsten Nils Wiesel, won the 1981 Nobel Prize in Medicine for his work with split-brain research. In this course James will cover the Value Features of MindManager.
