Hi, I'm Markus. I am the creator of MP4PM and I want to help you make your daily work and life as a project manager easier, more efficient and more productive than you ever imagined.
I've heard a lot of stories from project management professionals looking for tools and templates that match to the PMBoK. Or they're looking for visualization tools and methods to improve transparency and effectiveness in communicating with their stakeholders, but can't find any.
Great professionals, just like you, who are stuck and abandoning their quest for the success of project management, cause of:
Sleazy Tools and Template Providers, who promise the world but deliver very little once they have their hands on your cash ...
Overly technical tutorials that bore you to death with the mind-numbing mechanics of creating project deliverables and don't say a thing about strategy or communication ...
Over-priced courses that make big claims about helping you be successful...but do not fullfill what they have promised ...
Thankfully, all of that is behind you...
MP4PM - MindmaPping for Project Management
The MP4PM membership site is THE mind mapping related community for people working in the project management domain.
It’s packed with in-depth information and resources on all aspects of project management aligned to the processes and knowledge areas in the PMBoK (Project Managmeent Body of Knowledge)!
PLUS the community support you need to ensure your project management success and your full career potential.
This 3-minute introductory video will give you an idea of what you can expect from your MP4PM.club membership:
... creating professional project documentation and deliverables from the absolute beginning!
... Visualization of project management processes and reports to improve your project communication!
... Take advantage of the collective knowledge and experience of a community of like-minded project management professionals and experts.
... utilizing hands-on tools to work through all the project management processes in a structured way and step-by-step.
... to Consolidate unstructured information into a centralized visual overview
... to Gain and Maintain Alignment on Goals, Priorities, and Schedules with all Stakeholders
... to Set, coordinate and maintain tasks, responsibilities and schedules
... to create Project dashboards for tracking status and critical areas
I am an IT project manager for over 20 years now and have thought a lot about how to meet all the above challenges. And since I am also an enthusiastic user of mindmapping methods and tools, I have found a way to use mindmapping for this purpose.
That way, MP4PM was born and I am convinced that we had a great solution and framework here to provide you with the toolkit you need to succeed in your profession.
The use of such a visualization approach in project management supports 3 main areas:
“Wow, this is just like a virtual project management cockpit. This gives you the opportunity to look at things from an entirely different angle. This is great"
" ... That's pretty much how I imagined it to be. If only there had been something like this at the beginning of my career... The maps with the structure, the templates and the links. That's exactly what you need when you start leading projects after being sent to an introductory course and reading one or two books on the subject yourself.
And then the opportunity to exchange ideas on the platform in order to fill the whole thing with experience and make your project come to life..."
“’Great to see Markus’s MP4PM club come to life. It is one of the most comprehensive illustrations of the usefulness of mind mapping for managing projects I have seen.
The depth of professional experience Markus has brought to this site is reflected in the detail and accuracy of the PMBOK processes mind mapping templates. It is a staggering piece of work and incredibly valuable resource for any serious project manager.’"

“Markus, first of all mega-respect for what you have built.
I still have the impression of learning for the PMP exam and the corresponding material in my bones, so your product is really great because it makes it much easier to put theory into practice.
The whole layout of the page is elaborate and of high quality. ..."
“I opened up a few lessons and read the mind maps and Word document containing the lessons. They are very thorough and well organized.“
“For new PM certification aspirants, I am sure this is a very good resource, with Markus way of approach to concepts cementing the knowledge from various pesrpectives. Many students joining in a short time is a testimony of the quality of training delivered.“
Creator of MP4PM
20+ Years of Relevant Experience
I have more than 20 years of management and leadership experience, including more than 18 years in project and program management. I have proven the success of project management in the areas of IT services and outsourcing. I have led direct reporting teams of more than 60 management and non-management resources and project teams involving contractors, vendors, executives and external consultants.
One of my key goals and motivations is to implement the PMI project management philosophy and a PMI-based project management methodology in my company and my daily work. I created MP4PM in order to pass this enthusiasm on to you.
Knowledge and Expertise
My main focus in the last 18 years has been project and program management as well as PMO. The skills I have developed as a project manager and PMO leader in the IT services and outsourcing business have led to a passion for PMI's project management philosophy. I have already obtained my PMP certification in August 2015 while I am a PMP in good standing and have just extended the validation of accreditation until 2024. I am an enthusiastic PMP and PMI promoter.
This was the driver for the development of the MP4PM framework, with which everyone can apply the processes and principles of the PMBoK Guide in their daily work and even in life!
MP4PM is NOT for everyone, and truth be told we’d prefer to help you figure out if it’s not right for you BEFORE you join rather than waste your time. So, let’s cut to the chase...
It might seem strange, trying to talk you OUT of becoming a member - but truly if MP4PM is not the right fit then neither of us benefit. We have a vested interest in your success (you won’t stick around long if we’re not helping, right?) - and that all starts by making sure MP4PM is right for you before you join.
If not already seen yet please watch that 3-minute introductory video to see what you can expect:
100% Satisfaction Guaranteed
When you join MP4PM you are fully protected by our no questions asked 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you don't feel like you've received value and you decide you want to cancel any time within the next 14 days, just let us know and we'll send you a prompt refund.

As a member you will get access to a private FB group only for Members of MP4PM. In that group we will provide exclusive content and stuff, live sessions; Mentoring; Lectures and you do have an additional communication channel to reach us and the community experts.

Best Value: save 20%+ by joining an
* We are doing a so called "soft-launch". Therefore not all the content is available right from the start. That is the reason why price is that low at this time! The price will increase over time (as more content is provided). But if you join now, you will asure that current price and for you the price will never increase - for a lifetime! For more information about the "soft-launch" (What it is; Why we have choosen that way, ...) and to see what content is available right now please have a look at our MP4PM Launch Status Page HERE >>>
"MP4PM" stands for "MindmaPping for ProjectManagement". The MP4PM Framework is a mind mapping based framwork for applying project management processes in your daily work. All the mind maps and templates provided with the MP4PM Framework are 100% aligned with the current PMBoK Guide Version.
Or in other words:
MP4PM wants to support "ProjectManagement - the mind mapping way"
Absolutely - MP4PM covers every phase, stage and step of the project manegment life cycle - from the very start where you just have an idea or some kind of business documents to project closing and transition to operation. In fact now is the perfect time for you to join MP4pm; as not only do we have training that will take you through every step, but you'll also be able to get support and advice from within the community too, to help you through your journey.
I'm afraid not! MP4PM is an education based membership that provides training and resources to help you create projects and project deliverables aligned to the PMI Standard.
You still need to choose an external platform to store your projects (we recommend Sharepoint).
We plan to offer Sharepoint integration support for your MP4PM Framework in your organization later on.
You get access to everything already inside MP4PM straight away! No waiting for content to be released to you, just jump in and start making use of the resources straight away. We regularly update and add new material too - so your content library will continue growing.
It's time for you to take action. Simple as that. If you really want to boost your project visulaization and communication skills then you need somewhere to get answers to all of your questions - especially the ones you don’t know you have yet. You need support, community, and most of all... accountability!
MP4PM is that place. If you really want to make a difference, the time is now.
Another reason is, to save the actual price for lifetime - cause it will increase! We do a so called "soft-launch" with the MP4PM membership site ( for further information on that please go HERE) what essentially means, that not all of the planned content is available right from the start. We started with a foundation fo the content and therefor the price was low for the early adopters. Price will increase by several steps in companion to the content updates - but not for them who already joined! Once you have become a member your membership fee stays the same for a lifetime!
Obviously we'd love it if all of our members stuck around forever - but we know that that's never going to happen! So, if you do decide to cancel obviously we'll be very sad, but if you're intent on leaving then you'll be able to do so with just 2 clicks of a mouse.
Yes! While our content is created mostly with the Mindjet Mind Manager tool, the majority of the content in the MP4PM Member Site can still be used without having Mind Manager.
And their are also some free or less expensive Mind Mapping tools available out their which can also import Mind Manager maps like XMind, FreeMind or DropMind for instance.
No! You can also benefit from MP4PM without having a mind mapping tool like Mind Manager. For instance you can use/download the MS Office Templates and Tools on their own - standing alone. They are prepared and structured in the same way like the maps and also filled with a ton of helpful information and content examples. We are convinced that just having those MS Office Templates does satisfy the MP4PM Membership.
But, in addition to that templates you also being provided an online Version of the Maps which can be accessed online via your membership account or also offline be just open them with your favorite browser.
Finally, of course you would get the most benefit out of our map packages by utilizing such a tool, but it is not mandatory.
