Why using Mind Maps?

I get amazing questions when talking to people about Mind Maps. One of the most amazing and strangest at the same time is: OK, but why would I need that? I get this question – which actually equals to indifference – from people whom I would expect to show more open attitude towards new things – people involved in business. I alone have a business and that’s why the question causes me a little surprise.

For that reason I had to review and reconsider so many times the reasons WHY Mind Maps. To form a practical, clear and short answer to tell everybody who asks. So WHY? Because I know that well running business needs a tool improving important areas of business which consequently improves and boosts up any business performance. A good business has to have that. It is important for a good business. That tool is Mind Map ;-)
