Mindjet Connect + Cohuman: Vision and Action for Getting Work Done Right

The enterprise has changed. I’m not talking about compared to 10 years ago—everyone knows that. Today’s modern business is in a constant state of flux that seems to change every few months.

What works today in communications, business, and technology probably won’t work tomorrow. And the changes keep changing!

Most organizations haven’t adapted to this new reality. Teams get one shot at “getting it done.” They “succeed” and cross it off the list, even if they fail to get it done right. This rush to keep up creates organizational frustration and marginalizes the talents of your best people.  What results is sub optimal job performance and decreased job satisfaction- not a great recipe for success.

“Get it done” mentality leaves no time for collaboration.

It’s a process failure that stems from rigid embedded business practices, lack of accountability to business drivers, and lack of alignment between individual action and organizational goals.

Technologies that try to aid collaboration haven’t been adaptable to teams that need to create a new vision. A complete, out-of-the-box collaboration infrastructure was unheard of…until now.

Connect your team’s vision to action.

Today, we launched the latest release of Mindjet Connect, that includes a new feature: the first integration of Mindjet Connect with Cohuman, our new social task management solution.

Now you can pair Mindjet’s creative visualizations, content management, and collaboration with Cohuman’s project coordination and progress tracking capabilities—it provides a seamless work management system from initial vision to final action.

Where’s the new stuff?

In Mindjet Connect’s mapping view, you’ll notice a new button in the Tools section called “Send to Cohuman.” With a single click, important tasks can now be exported and tracked inside Cohuman.

Here’s how.  Just as before, you can still use Mindjet Connect for initial project preparation—from brainstorming, to organizing, to planning—but, if you export those tasks, along with due dates and % completions, Cohuman will delegate, coordinate, and track them all the way through to completion.

But that’s not all.

The export feature also lets you determine where you want these tasks to reside in Cohuman— in an existing project, a new project you can name during the export, or to your personal task list.

Within Mindjet Connect, this feature creates hyperlinks in the map that link to specific Cohuman tasks for quick and easy access.

Cohuman also includes a hyperlink to the map that the task was exported from, so you’ll always have a seamless link between Mindjet Connect maps and their related Cohuman tasks (see below).

Once you complete an export, you can coordinate tasks by assigning them to others, adding followers, assigning target dates, starting discussion threads, and attaching relevant files—everything you need to manage the project.

Mindjet Connect with Cohuman: This is how to go from “get it done” to “nice job getting it done right.”

    …and, please, when will your MMgr for Mac users be able to use the features of Mindjet Connect and the Cohuman link?  We hate being second-class citizens :-)…

    Que interesante idea, no tengo duda que esto hace mucha falta para gestionar el progreso de los proyectos colaborativos, aunque considero que al minamanager hace falta agregar la presentación del mapa mental convertido como una gráfica de pescado.

    Hey guys,

    This looks like a neat social task management system! I don’t fall under the target market for this software, but it looks like you did a good move with this purchase. It will be great added value.

    Cheers!Matt
