Goalscape's simple yet powerful visual model provides a rich, meaningful overview of any information structure without losing sight of the detail. It matches the way the brain works in breaking down large, complex subjects into smaller, more manageable parts; so it is immediately comprehensible. The software has an engaging and intuitive interface that makes it exceptionally easy to use: absolutely no training required.
Having specific, inspirational, well-expressed goals is the most significant factor in motivating ourselves and others. Moreover a complete structure of goals and subgoals reinforces a systematic, effective, focused approach. So Goalscape is an essential tool for ambitious individuals and organizations who want to achieve anything worthwhile.
The circular 'multi-level pie chart' reinforces the fact that resources are limited – especially time. It displays the Relative Importance of each subgoal as the size of its slice, so when you make one subgoal bigger (more important) all the others must become smaller (less important). This provides an instant, clear representation of project priorities.
Goalscape supports all goal-directed activity, from brainstorming and ideas sessions to presentations and workshops. Best of all, you can use the same goalscape for the project itself: it supports detailed scheduling and planning, including roles and responsibilities, metrics and milestones.
Progress is shown as shading on the goal map: progress in subgoals reflects up into their parents in proportion to its importance. So you can see straight away how you are doing in different areas and overall: any large goals that are not being filled in demand attention!
There are many other useful features, including file attachments; smart search; a highlight facility to show goals with common dates, responsibilities or tags. And there are 'Infopoint' tutorial videos available in the software itself that explain all the major functions.
Goalscape is integrated with other tools like MS Project, MindManager and Basecamp and sophisticated reporting functions for exporting Goalscape information in PDF, DOCX, HTML, XLSX and CSV.
There is also a Cloud version, Goalscape Connect (see separate listing) and a companion iPhone app (which is free).
