Successful Meeting Planning with MindView

Plan An Effective Meeting Yesterday's post introduced the "5 Steps to a Successful Meeting" planning approach. 

 

Here the map is presented in MindView Business Edition, partly by way of contrast but also to demonstrate how the map may be used as a template to create the meeting briefing.  You can download the MindView map here.

 

 

FocusOnBriefingThe text for the topics under "Step 3 - Prepare Meeting Briefing" is added as notes to the key topics.  For the meeting briefing, I only want this branch to be exported to Word so "Apply branch focus" to the "Step 3 - Prepare Meeting Briefing" topic.

 

MeetingBriefing Next export the map to Word.  Once in Word, remove any topic headings not needed and what is left is the briefing for the meeting, ready for pasting into an email or further refinement as a Word document. 

Follow the same process if you decide to create the meeting agenda (Step 4) within MindView.
