New Management Team Drives Focus and Growth
In 2006, Mindjet brought in a new management team, led by CEO Scott Raskin, to take the company and its products to the next level of awareness, adoption, and relevance. Raskin is the former COO of Telelogic, a global leader in software applications for decision making, business process management, enterprise architecture, and requirements management. Raskin’s team is now sharply focused on expanding its product line, increasing its channel relationships, and extending its presence within Global 2000 companies to solve specific, mission-critical business problems related to project delivery, corporate strategy, sales effectiveness, and product development. Adoption is rapidly increasing as word spreads about the significant tangible business improvements to be gained by using MindManager in these functional areas.
“As people become inundated with more and more data, they need ways to add context, experience, and relevance to this data to be able to better organise their thoughts, communicate plans, collaborate on projects, and ultimately innovate,” said Scott Raskin, CEO of Mindjet. “MindManager allows people to do this, and powers the creative thinking of knowledge workers in nearly all of the world’s largest and most successful companies. The word is getting out – users are flocking to the application as something they can’t live without.”
Mindjet’s interactive mapping software offers a transformative—but easily learned—way for organisations to change the way business professionals interact with information, ideas and each other to create innovation and change—the lifeblood of today’s knowledge-based, rapidly evolving economy. Mindjet “transforms chaos into clarity” by allowing individuals and teams to quickly map out and understand complex concepts, programs and plans using a highly visual and intuitive format.
Mindjet has gained significant progress over the last year in growing its channel partnerships and effectiveness. The company launched a new partnership program in 2006, and has a growing base of more than 350 reseller and VAR partners around the world. Mindjet’s notable new or expanded partner relationships include Douglas Stewart and IngramMicro. Mindjet expects to sign additional agreements in 2007 with partners within project management, sales CRM, and corporate strategy markets.

“We’re excited about the growing recognition and adoption of MindManager,” said Raskin. “New Mindjet solutions around project management, sales effectiveness and business planning will help our customers accelerate critical work and decision processes, improve collaboration and drive better business outcomes. In the coming months, new Mindjet products and solutions will deliver significant new value to business professionals, teams and organisations worldwide. 2007 is going to be a very exciting year!”
