ThinkBuzan Training On a Roll

The last two months have been bustling on the training front at ThinkBuzan.  As we grow our training portfolio and activity, we are creating more and more mental literacy champions across the globe.  The calibur of delegates at the TLI (ThinkBuzan Licensed Instructor) courses couldn’t be more impressive and we know they will be invaluable partners in our mission to get the world thinking better.

TLI Orlando

Our ThinkBuzan Licensed Instructor Pathway in Orlando last month was a phenomenal success.  The group ranged from UN advisors to US Navy Admirals, from Budapest to Milwaukee.  Intelligent, creative, quick off the mark and one of the warmest groups of people we have ever worked with.

iMindMap 5.1 is ready

It has been just over 1 month since I first posted a reply to the feedback on iMindMap 5 launch. During that time the entire team has worked tirelessly to deliver on a promise I made, that we are listening to you.

I think that point is worth making again, iMindMap 5 is not just a product we sell to you. It is a product where our customers will actively shape its future, and where we as a company can work with you to create the best thinking tool on the planet!

Our goal is simple, we want to increase the mental literacy of the world. It is no small goal and one we know we can only do by making positive steps. When we launched iMindMap 5 we committed to giving away iMindMap Basic for free. When I last posted, we updated the software with some very early fixes and committed to acting based directly on what you said. Now you can see the results.

iMindMap & Crunch – Creative Accounting クリエイティブな会計

Part 4 of iMindMap in Motion

Crunch Logo

「クリエイティブ」と「異なる」という言葉は、会計会社と聞いたときにまず思いつく2つの言葉ではないと思います。 会計士の方がクリエイティブでは無いということではなく、業界に対してあまりカラフルではないイメージを持っている方が多いのではないでしょうか。



Crunchはファイナンスから苦痛を取り除き、複雑をシンプルにし、退屈を楽しいことに変えることを念頭に全てがデザインされています。Crunchの取締役がiMindMapを選択したのもうなずけます。iMindMapはまさにこのような方達に使用していただくためのソフトウェアです。 難解な専門用語で埋め尽くされたページは一見それらしく見えますが、実際にはまったく効果的ではないことをCrunchのDarren Fell氏そして我々もよく理解しています。退屈で混乱を招く内容は創造性を起こさせる要素もなければ効率的でもありません。

今回Crunchの取締役Darren Fell氏にお話を伺い、将来有望なこの会社がどのようにしてマインドマッピングを彼らのビジネスの数式に組み込もうと思ったのかを探ってみました。




  • 11のメインブランチをもつマインドマップは、それぞれが会社の部署を表します。
  • 各部署の主となる役割や優先順位を子ブランチとしてまとめます。
  • そしてこのマップから各部署の新しいマインドマップへリンクを貼ります。各部署の子ブランチはそれぞれの部署が担当しているプロジェクトやタスクとして展開します。

Crunch Master Map

各部署とその部署に関連した問題や懸念事項を深く検討することで、全ての部署が明確な方向性と焦点を持った状態を確保することができました。全ての部署はいつでも参照できる目標が明確に提示されたマインドマップを持つことになります。もとのメインのマップはFell氏が各部署の動向の全体像を把握するための情報源となります。これにより、全員が同じレベルで理解し行動できる状態になります。 このシンプルなモデルは会社全体の方向性へ焦点を絞りながら常に前進しクリエイティブなエネルギーを増幅します。このエネルギーはCrunchのWebサイトを見ただけで強く感じ取れるはずです。

iMindMap's Project ViewFell氏はここで止まりません。マインドマップを会社全体の業務に活用しています。

ユーザーが目にする外側は可能な限りシンプルにすることを念頭に新しい製品の開発を行っています。皆さんもご存知のようにシンプルで直感的なインターフェースは実は裏ではとても巧妙で複雑な仕組みが存在しいます! 製品の開発過程を管理し予定通りに遂行していく手助けにiMindMapのプロジェクト管理ツールが一役買っています。
