Three Steps to Better Projects

How to Plan a Project with Mind Maps.

Your project plan is essential to your project’s success. A good project plan should include your goals and objectives, budget and costs, resources, and specific tasks. Mind maps can help you plan concrete steps for your project and boost collaboration, creativity and flexibility in the process. With mind maps, you can streamline and improve any project – from simple to complex – at any stage in the process. Here are the three steps to planning success with mind maps:

Generate Big Ideas, Together.

Brainstorm Collaboratively

Every project starts with an idea. Start with your main project idea at the center of your map. Then, add related keywords, filling your map out with fresh ideas for your project. Once you’ve got a bunch of great ideas, it’s time to start organizing your plan.

Work Smarter, Not Harder.

Outline Plans

Now that you’ve got a map full of project ideas, it’s time to sift through to find the best of the best. Once you’ve narrowed down your ideas, start to organize them into a logical structure. It’s easy to do this by dragging and dropping topics in your MindMeister mind map. Now that you’ve got a set of categories and related ideas, it’s easier to define your project.

Keep Everyone on the Same Page.

Maintain the Overview

Once you’ve developed your project plan and set it in motion, it’s essential to maintain the overview. Use online mind maps to keep stakeholders and project contributors on the same page. MindMeister’s sharing functions enable you to visualize the status of your project, present specific elements of a project, invite feedback and much more.

Plan, Execute, Document, Done.

The Meister Suite.

Project planning is the first step toward project success. Use the entire Meister Suite to manage your projects from ideation, to execution, to documentation. It’s seamless, end-to-end workflow management.
