Mindmapping, a popular mindset tool among entrepreneurs, could substantially boost your workplace's productivity.

According to Tony Hackett, a success coach, the best way to leverage mindmaps is in an environment and scenario that is best fitting to achieve the best possible success by means of increasing productivity.

"Mindmapping is amazingly constructive and efficient and mindmapping software is the single most effective workplace productivity tool," he wrote in a blog post about the subject on Medium.com. The tool is effective, he explained, more so than once thought. However, how you mindmap and what you use the technique for varies in its ability to help you be more productive at work, school, or home.

"There is no other tool that supports all of the uses in the diagram above, but more than broad functionality, it inherently encourages dialogue," Hackett wrote. "This is achieved in a variety of ways, from the loose and unstructured of brainstorming to the building of presentation or proposal outlines."

Hackett explains that there is a wide-ranging variety of mindmapping software applications that are powerful enough to tackle some of the toughest challenges in productivity and organization.

One software that Hackett points to―known as SimpleMind― is a powerful cross-platform mindmapping tool that allows you and members of your workgroup to get thoughts down and understand the flow of projects in real time. SimpleMind's software even allows you to visualize your mindmap with pictures and symbols while also providing functionality to analyze every step of progress made in completing a project. Firms like Ubisoft and Cisco use this platform for collaboration on projects.

Hackett points out other mindmapping software products that are cross-platform and allows for thought processing and team collaboration on the go. But, the main point that Hackett reveals is that mindmapping is a tool that can be a game changer.
