Mindjet and Thinking Dimensions Collaborate to Solve Complex Business Problems

Integration of MindManager With KEPNERandFOURIE™ Methodology Combines Visual Perspective With Process

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 7, 2008) - Mindjet® Corporation, a global leader in software that enables people to organize and express their ideas visually, and Thinking Dimensions, a global business management consultancy focused on organizational performance, today delivered a powerful package for improving decision making and effectiveness through the lens of a visual map. The combination enables teams to streamline decision making dramatically in today's challenging business climate.

Thinking Dimensions' new TD ThinkingWorks add-in for MindManager Pro 7 provides a visual interface that makes it easier to navigate through question-driven systematic processes. MindManager enables teams to see their information in context and creates a common visual language to drive performance. Employees can break down complex business problems into manageable parts, ask the right questions, and develop an actionable strategy.

"Thinking Dimensions' ThinkingWorks processes have been the key components of our organization's decision making methodology. Their integration with Mindjet's MindManager software now allows managers to connect globally with tools we know expedite results," said John Case, President and CEO of Electrolux Home Care Products North America.

"I have been using TD ThinkingWorks with MindManager to help my clients solve planning and strategic problems, and the visual format makes the process much more understandable," said Tony Wanless of Knowpreneur Consultants, a management consultancy for knowledge-based businesses. "It's often difficult to describe the thinking process -- and it is a process -- to people, especially creative people. The visual format puts it all in perspective and takes the emotion out of it. My clients love it."

Knowledge workers benefiting from this combination of tools include professionals in quality management, project management, sales and marketing, purchasing, legal services, executive management, IT, and any other function where developing problem solving processes is key to achieving success.

"Combining an analytical approach with the universal visual language of a map will enable professionals to streamline decision making and get to the root of business issues," said Scott Raskin, Mindjet CEO. "The use of MindManager's intuitive framework, in tandem with Thinking Dimensions' proven method, helps companies to be more effective and innovative in today's competitive world."
