When planning writing, reports or blogs
Many writers swear by Scrivener, though its visual form is an outline not a mind map. For small reports I use MindManager to produce a skeleton contents list with some draft content in place, because it can export to Word files. For large reports, where there’s a lot of research and reference information needed to develop the report and support points made, I plan, gather and organize the information in Topicscape Pro which has a variety of useful text output options that include links and cross references.
