There’s no shortage of ways the new Microsoft® PowerPoint® import capability in ConceptDraw MINDMAP v7 can help you. Consider a few possible scenarios...
Scenario 1 — Need to Review PowerPoint Content
A major proposal to your company includes a PowerPoint slide deck covering some of the more detailed points. Flipping from slide to slide takes time, and in the process you can lose or obscure the meaning behind the presentation. With the latest update to ConceptDraw MINDMAP, you can easily extract the content from the presentation and see how it all fits together in a single view.
Olga: The entire management team needs to review those proposal slides before the end of the week. I just glanced at the file and there are over 50 slides! There’s no way we’ll have time for all this.
Jeff: You know, ConceptDraw MINDMAP just added this great ability to import from PowerPoint. We can just import that presentation into a mind map, and then distribute the map to our management team for review. You will save them so much time and headache, you might just get that promotion!
Olga: Brilliant, Jeff! You keep this up and you might just get that promotion.
Scenario 2 — Organization of Presentation Content
You have to give an important presentation to the Board of Directors on Friday. The last presentation you gave they picked apart. They said it wasn’t presented properly, and that it was very hard to follow. They felt you should have done a better job of supporting your critical points.
Mary: I have to give the most important presentation of my life to the Board of Directors on Friday! The last time I was in front of them, they were less then pleased.
Ignacio: I heard about how you went down in flames; it wasn’t a pretty sight. How about when you have the presentation completed, you import it into ConceptDraw MINDMAP? In a single view you can look over your slide content, see how the slides support one another, refine the story, and then the end result is that you’ll look much more professional.
Mary: Ignacio, you are a life saver! I never thought of doing that.
Scenario 3 — Improve Learning from Slides
The class you are attending has distributed slide presentations that contain lots of study content. The challenge is to take all of the material from class and use it to better leverage the time you have to study. With ConceptDraw MINDMAP you can pull the content into a map that gives you better access to the class materials.
Oscar: I think am going to fail the midterm tomorrow for our Supply Chain class. I’ve been studying from the PowerPoint slides the professor gave me, but it is taking me so long just to get organized! There are extensive notes on every page. Thinking about it, I just know I am going to flunk that midterm. There’s not enough time left!
Elizabeth: The test for that class is going to be so easy. I finished studying for it yesterday.
Oscar: Yesterday?! How did you manage that?
Elizabeth: I have this cool program called ConceptDraw MINDMAP. I just imported the PowerPoint slides into it and all of the content comes up in a mind map. It makes it super easy to organize, and all the notes on the slides get pulled into the Notes section of the mind map. Then I can add more notes and even hyperlink to a web page or a supporting document. It cut my study time in half. It’s almost like magic!
Oscar: Oh man, that sounds great! I am starting to feel better about the exam already.
