Work isn’t just about getting the job done. In a fast-paced business environment, the most successful organisations are those that have recognised the importance of remaining flexible and adaptable. To stay ahead of the game, these businesses prioritise creative thinking in order to spark innovative solutions.
You don’t need to be artistic to be creative. At iMindMap, we believe that anyone has the ability to harness the creativity they were born with and put it to good use. Mind Mapping and visual thinking allow you to generate original ideas and not only think outside the box but remove that box completely. Experience total freedom of thought and an ‘anything is possible’ mindset. Read on to find out how iMindMap 11 will be the solution to all your creative ambitions.
It’s easy to get stuck in a habitual routine, especially at work. Break free from the status quo by making time for daydreaming. Many think of daydreaming as something only done in laziness. We don’t think so. Discover the value of focused daydreaming in the search for creative solutions and insights. The key is to keep it focused and deliberate, without preparation, but with a goal in mind.
Then, make sense of your fresh thinking with iMindMap’s Brainstorm View where you can visually organise your ideas on a limitless cork board. With the ability to add lists, images and connect thoughts with a digital string, working in this visual way will enable you to trigger your own inspiration and think more effectively. With a flexible overview of all your thinking as it develops, you’ll be able to spot associations between ideas and find the creative solutions you’ve been looking for.
Businesses need to be innovative to survive, so having an adaptable plan makes it easier to pivot in order to respond to changes in the market. The flexibility of Radial Map View will allow you to give your business a new lease of life, stay up-to-date and keep up with industry trends. Helping you to deconstruct your challenges and overcome them more easily, Radial Map View will enable you to simultaneously see the forest and the trees, giving you a high-level overview and a more detailed perspective in one easy-to-digest diagram.
Perfect for a rebranding project, expand specific nodes on your Radial Map to focus in on individual steps of your business renovation such as the website interface, the use of colours, or your company logo. Avoiding information overload in this way will help you to think clearly and creatively. Add more ideas as they come to you – your Radial Map’s circular structure will always remain intact.
When creative ideas escape you, generative thinking is key. Produce a network of infinite ideas with Fast Capture’s Bubble Web. Like a word association game, don’t be afraid to note down whatever pops into your head. Switch to Bubble Groups later to group and organise your new thoughts together.
To grow your ideas even further, branch out to Mind Map View, our ultimate view for reaching the heights of your creativity. By placing keywords on your Mind Map’s radiating branches, you’ll be able to spark associations between ideas, while having a visual overview will allow you to spot gaps in your thinking. Use images along child branches to develop concepts. By connecting different and opposing ideas, you’ll create new combinations, helping you to realise your most creative and innovative solutions yet.
