Does anybody have experience in using Mind Maps or related visual techniques for managing projects better? Did it help ? If not, what were the challenges that you faced?

I used mind mapping and other techniques. If you ask me, the only techniques that matters is the technique that will help you to interact with your stakeholders. So, the technique must be selected after stakeholder management process.

I'll side with Sergio on this one. Any tool or technique might be the right one for a given project context, but the key is in identifying what that right tool or technique is.

Mind maps are a good way to visualize the relationship between concepts and to progressively elaborate on shared information, but if you have a team which is new to using them or a team which prefers more of a hierarchical, structured approach, mind maps might be challenging for them to embrace.
