Thank you Néstor !

I just downloaded it and will try in the next few days.  This seems very promising.

I watched some of the videos and also was intrigued.

My first reaction is that it would be very useful for critical thinking activities, particularly training for students or interns.

It seems to be directed toward code development output.

Thanks Hugh !

I am very appreciative of all the responses, not only for bringing tools that I was not aware of, but also for the obvious desire of the community to be helpful.

I recognize as I mentioned in my first post that I struggled with how to describe what I was looking for.

Over the years I have tried many tools (MindManager, XMind, Smartdraw, CMAP, wikis, etc.), along with more formal tools such as those related to semantic development.  The application would involve both the thinking and creative process and ultimately presentation output—- but not large datasets with intense crunching.

My role is more strategic and programmatic at this point, both at work and with non-profit boards.

Hopefully these last paragraphs gives a slightly better sense of what I have been looking for.

Having said that, I found a very interesting tool that I am looking at right now.  Although I am not sure it is what I seek it does fit some of my needs (creative, visual, multiple scenarios) so am going to try it.  It is called Aeon Timeline:  http://www.scribblecode.com/

Will let you know.

But please if any other ideas come up, let me know.

Sorry, I forgot to mention this:  I develop strategic and tactical scenarios to achieve specific objectives and goals.
