I wonder if any forum members have any preference for Mindmapping or similar software. I have bought the program Inspiration but would like something which is closer to the mindmapping paradigm. It seems to me the bang per buck in the established packages such as Mindmanager, Mind Genius, Mindmapper, ConceptDraw etc is pretty low and they seem to be getting more expensive all the time.
I just spent the best part of a day at work trying to create a new way of looking at budgeting at work to help the number nuts understand the engineering. I had to use Visio for the idea generation and mapping process so that the outpout could be shared with others. Yuk. I could have done the same thing with Excel in less than two hours.
