    Hi Jack

    Goalscaping is best, of course! Mindmapping is great for jotting down ideas and connections; you can also do that in Goalscape though – and it has the following advantages:

    • Clear visual display of priorities and progress for immediate understanding
    • Supports a goal-oriented approach
    • Provides a structure for the goal hierarchy
    • Allows you to move from brainstorming and ideas sessions to a formal project (with targets, timescales, metrics and responsibility) using a single tool
    • Online version for shared projects, with cool collaboration features like presence and update indicators, access privilege settings and Goal Comment (per-goal IM with inline attachments and email notification options)

    Here is Goalscape inventor Marcus Baur's article on the subject: https://www.goalscape.com/blog/goalscaping-better-mindmapping/. Marcus also talks about how he came up with the Goalscape format in this short video about Using Goalscape for Presentations: https://www.goalscape.com/blog/using-goalscape-presentations-meetin....

    There are some articles out there that suggests mindmapping improves memory. Does the same apply to goalscape?

    Hello Jack

    Interesting question! Sorry for the delay in responding: for some reason your message here went into our spam filter and was only discovered during a periodic sweep. (You can prevent this happening in future by creating a Profile on this forum by clicking the link at the top of any page of this forum.)

    There is certainly evidence that people tend to respond better to visual cues than text lists. Our customers tell us that Goalscape's visual format is particularly engaging and memorable: the additional structure helps to 'cement' the image and, crucially, the meaning behind it. Check out some of the feedback here.

    Enjoy the journey!
