Context Organizer pinpoints salient information quickly
David Esko of ERP Blue Diamond owns a company specializing in providing knowledge and mind maps for SAP customers. His company developed hundreds of process and knowledge maps. Their preferred visualization tool is MindManager from Mindjet.
In the past few months David started to use Context Organizer for MindManager. Here are his comments:
Since I work in the SAP world as a project / program manager, my knowledge and process maps are exercised heavily!
I use Context Organizer extensively to generate summary information that relate to generation of sales and pre-sales content when researching industry vertical information as well as information regarding the latest best business practices and how the solution will apply to my prospect or client.
If I’m helping a sales effort, I can turn the summarized information that has been gleaned from very voluminous web sites, and spin a fact filled PowerPoint presentation so fast, most sales people wonder how I did it!
Best business practices are done in a similar way. In these instances, I need to go to multiple sources of data that are mostly web based, but also in huge Word documents and extract information regarding the way a prospect executes their business processes today (as is), but also compare it to future state business processes.
Two major time savers; first, older and voluminous ‘as is’ documentation needs to be summarized very quickly. My teams don’t generally waste a lot of our clients’ time on the way they perform their business processes today. That’s why we need to extract the salient information from their document archives quickly and extrapolate the critical from the non-critical information.
We compare the ‘as is’ results to the ‘to be’ future state and we can almost instantly identify where the bottlenecks might occur before diving into the project. The keywords for me are, proactive and pre-emptive! Context Organizer gives me these abilities!
