Starting to analyse me workflow again given changes in role and sheer amount of work on. The thinking is that this analysis will help me identify some wasted effort and give me more space for effective process.
At the moment it looks like
Omnifocus is the backbone of my workflow, all 'ins' go through Omnifocus
Projects are mostly collated in Excel. Purely so I have some way to articulate them to other people (skimming through my Omnifocus is not desirable). Sadly this then often gets wrapped up further into PowerPoint
To steal a concept from MacSparky I "cook" ideas in mind mapping and outliner program's. iThoughts HD and OmniOutliner server this task
OmniGraffle is the go to software for creating diagrams of ANY kind. I find that if I can't mind map it or if I think I'll need to present the process to other people I'll be drawing it out in OmniGraffle
I'm going to look into nvAlt over the next couple of days for text wrangling
