For example, in a mind map, it is convenient to see what you have now and what you want to get.
In this format, you can immediately see:
- the ways of moving,
- the pros and cons,
- the benefits and costs.
It is possible to collect all the options, to make connections with what relates to what, priorities, and it is easy to add or remove something.
So if you make a strategic map of the main goals, as you see it, and distribute it to the heads of departments/responsible persons. They will understand at a glance what it is all about, where the focus is.
With this, it will be easier for departments to make right tactical maps for their areas and not to miss the main things.
- Make goals and define a plan to achieve them in their departments/teams.
- Bring the message to employees.
Who also won't need a long explanation. Because in mind maps everything is clear and at a glance the whole situation can be seen and the details can be clearly seen.
In this way to focus on the tasks and goals set, it is convenient to set up e-mail notifications to employees every morning or every Monday, for example, with a link to the map. This can also be done directly from IOctopus mind maps.
What do you get?
- Employees see the process clearly.
- This gives them better quality control.
You can use checklist mode so that staff and managers can see when tasks are ready.
And immediately track where things are going well.
And where problems are brewing and action needs to be taken.
By the way, finding a solution can also be made more convenient by mind maps. If you brainstorm to the person or to the team in real time and draft solutions. And then arrange the pros and cons and see the best way out.
- Then, when a solution has been found, the link to the summary map can be shared with other staff in view-only mode, and trusted staff can be shared for editing as well.
It also works effectively when mind maps are used by employees in their day-to-day tasks both individually and within the department.
This allows easier and faster:
- communication within the team,
- control of deadlines and quality,
- new ideas and improvements to the product and workflow.
So you get a better product and service.
And besides that the product will increase the value to the customer. This will provide an increase in satisfied customers. And consequently positive feedback. A high rating and good reputation will bring new customers. Increased sales. And profits. Yum yum.

For communication between employees, there is a sharable link function with two modes - edit or view only.
If you share a link for editing with several participants - even if it is the whole department - they can edit the mind map at the same time and see in real time the cursors of other people and the changes made by each person.
