I've always even been a fan of a business graphics package. It's an easy way to do mind maps, org charts, calendars, room plans, flyers, web pages, and just about every other type of graphic you can imagine. However, at almost US$300 it's not cheap.
Edraw is cheaper, at around US$100, and works in a similar way. A great bargain, however, is that the mind map software of Edraw is also available completely free.
