We are more likely to engage with data when it is presented clearly and with context. With iMindMap’s Organisational Chart View, you can set out information, thoughts and processes as part of a structured bigger picture. This week, we’re providing you with some Org. Chart inspiration. Read on for 3 ways you can get more out of this brand-new iMindMap view.
Streamline your workflows
If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got. Take some time to review the way you approach your everyday to-dos. Get a fresh perspective by building an Org. Chart that outlines your daily workflows. By including each step as part of a bigger picture, you’ll be able to spot where issues arise or bottlenecks occur and work out ways around them. Use relationship arrows to highlight related tasks to avoid duplication of work. Add any documents that you need to your Org. Chart and keep them to hand. An icon will keep resources hidden until they are needed. Not only will your Org. Chart help you spot innovative ways to get more done each day, but for those days when you need to delegate your work to others, there’s a fool-proof guide to keep your workflows moving.
Build a company overview
You can use Org. Chart View to represent the internal structure of your company or organisation. With a top-down overview, you can begin to build a chain of nodes that represents each employee and their role within the company. Group teams together by colour coding nodes. Use images to add employee headshots to your Org. Chart. This will make the onboarding of new staff simple and allow new starters to put a name to a face. Because of how they’re structured, Org. Charts clearly represent hierarchy, visually communicating the ranks of different people, jobs and departments that make up the business. Create an Org. Chart for your organisation using iMindMap and share this invaluable resource with your colleagues. When changes happen, jump back into iMindMap to quickly update your Org. Chart and share again.
When you’re carrying out a research task, Org. Chart View is an ideal workspace. Plot your findings into an organised framework without losing the ability to trace back any information gathered to your starting point. This traceable flow of information will help you to communicate how you came to the conclusions drawn from your research. Back your findings up with any evidence you find by inserting web links, documents and image files to the relevant nodes. Remember, every workspace canvas in iMindMap is infinite, so your Org. Chart can grow as you delve deeper into your research. Use personalised tags to build a filtering system across your Org. Chart, and cut through the noise when you need to hone in on specific areas of your research.
