 """Much progress results when different streams of human understanding are brought together. This book is about such an epiphany - that the traditionally left-brain working of industry can be greatly enriched by the creative potential of mind-maps. Our process-oriented industries need more creativity... so it is definitely worth investing some time to evaluate this book and its thesis for yourself!""

-Manas Fuloria, Co-founder and CEO, Nagarro
“Project management is typically associated with linear thinking with a beginning, a middle and an end. Mind Maps are associated with Creativity and non-linear thinking. When an expert in both areas - PMP, Scrum Master and a Thinkbuzan tutor- brings this expertise together in one book, it tickles the left and right side of the brain simultaneously. Maneesh has written a compelling thesis and is a must read for CXOs and project managers alike, to get the most out of projects!”

-Sameer Garde, President, South Asia, Philips India
""While solving complex problems we may have a difficulty in looking at all perspectives of the eventual solution. Mind Maps help in documenting our thoughts in a more structured way by aligning the creative thinking process with the analytical decision process. This expertise was so far not available in India and the initiative by Maneesh is a welcome and valuable contribution. This is especially useful for mid-level and senior people but can be used by all age groups.""

-Tushar Bhatia, Founder & CEO, EmpXtrack
“Just as the LEAN movement transformed the Manufacturing industry, Mind Maps can do the same to the field of Project Management. A Mind Map helps cuts across the noise in multiple situations, brings into focus the core issue and ignites creativity through whole brain thinking. Through this book Maneesh has provided a framework and examples to apply Mind Mapping to the practice of Project Management - a bold move that will encourage creative thinking and problem solving. A must read for organizational heads and all project managers.”

- Nitin Kulkarni, Founder & Principal Consultant, Elevo Consulting
“The book is a Project management and Mind Maps toolkit coming from a practicing professional and trainer Maneesh Dutt. It is a guide map for decision makers to enable project professionals become more creative and innovative in managing projects. Projects, today, are more like a hundred meter sprint than a marathon and deserve nimble techniques like Mind Maps to execute better. The book picks up the threads from project management fundamentals along with inspiration from nature and provides a rich array of Mind Map templates allowing organizations to kick start their journey towards better project management. A real boon to organizations that are involved in any Project activity!”

Struggling to teach your child?
This Book is for you IF
… you are at your wits end while teaching your kids
…you believe that there must be a more creative way to teach
…you are willing to invest a little more time to learn techniques to make learning fun for your kids
…you truly believe that children are more intelligent than us
It is easy for a child to ensure laser like focus while playing or when engaged in something of his/her interest. A child does not need to learn to concentrate and focus. He is a natural at it! The real problem statement is, therefore, not how to increase a child’s ability to concentrate. It is in fact how to revolutionize our teaching methodologies to match the energy and enthusiasm of a child.

This is what this Book is all about.

What Industry leaders have to say about the Book

"Maneesh presents a strong case in point to make learning enjoyable for students leveraging on the inherent strengths of a child. The Book is full of ready to use practical advice. It is a must read for both eager as well as anxious parents along with teachers, who would like to make the learning process more engaging for a child."

"Pramod Maheswari, CMD & CEO, Career Point Ltd, Chancellor, Career Point University Kota (Rajashthan) & Hamirpur (Himachal Pradesh), India"

“I first met Maneesh when he attended one of ThinkBuzan’s Mind Mapping courses. Maneesh shares his experience and passion for the application of Mind Mapping in this book, and both you and your child will benefit from its teachings.”

Chris Griffiths, Founder and CEO, OpenGenius, the parent company of ThinkBuzan, creators of the iMindMap, DropTask and Tec Marina. Best-selling author, GRASP: The Solution, Penarth, Wales

“There is a dire need to make learning simple and engaging for children in this age of excess information. Mind map is an important technique to understand and combine various elements of a topic/subject. I believe Maneesh’s book with his insights and practical techniques of using Mind maps will really benefit both students and teacher.”

The Challenge
Built to Last, the defining management study of the nineties, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the verybeginning.

But what about the company that is not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?

The Study
For years, this question preyed on the mind of Jim Collins. Are there companies that defy gravity and convert long-term mediocrity or worse into long-term superiority? And if so, what are the universal distinguishing characteristics that cause a company to go from good to great?

The Standards
Using tough benchmarks, Collins and his research team identified a set of elite companies that made the leap to great results and sustained those results for at least fifteen years. How great? After the leap, the good-to-great companies generated cumulative stock returns that beat the general stock market by an average of seven times in fifteen years, better than twice the results delivered by a composite index of the world's greatest companies, including Coca-Cola, Intel, General Electric, and Merck.

The Comparisons
The research team contrasted the good-to-great companies with a carefully selected set of comparison companies that failed to make the leap from good to great. What was different? Why did one set of companies become truly great performers while the other set remained only good?

Over five years, the team analyzed the histories of all twenty-eight companies in the study. After sifting through mountains of data and thousands of pages of interviews, Collins and his crew discovered the key determinants of greatness -- why some companies make the leap and others don't.

The Findings
The findings of the Good to Great study will surprise many readers and shed light on virtually every area of management strategy and practice. The findings include:

Level 5 Leaders: The research team was shocked to discover the type of leadership required to achieve greatness. The Hedgehog Concept (Simplicity within the Three Circles): To go from good to great requires transcending the curse of competence. A Culture of Discipline: When you combine a culture of discipline with an ethic of entrepreneurship, you get the magical alchemy of great results. Technology Accelerators: Good-to-great companies think differently about the role of technology. The Flywheel and the Doom Loop: Those who launch radical change programs and wrenching restructurings will almost certainly fail to make the leap.

“Some of the key concepts discerned in the study,” comments Jim Collins, "fly in the face of our modern business culture and will, quite frankly, upset some people.”

Perhaps, but who can afford to ignore these findings?
