You just found the Solution!
That’s What Inspired MeTo Build this Place
I've heard a lot of stories from business professionals like project managers, business analysts, and others, looking for models, methods, and artifacts that match their needs and which are easy and fast to use.
Or they're looking for visualization tools and methods to improve transparency and effectiveness in communicating with their stakeholders, but can't find any.
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...

Here it is:
MP4PM.club membership site
I am a senior IT project manager for over 20 years and have thought a lot about how to meet all the above challenges. And since I am also an enthusiastic user of mind-mapping and other visualizing methods and tools, I have found a way to use all those kinds of tools for this purpose.
That way, "MP4PM - Method Power for Project Management" was born and I am convinced that we had a great solution and framework here to provide you with the models, methods, artifacts, processes, and good practices to enhance your Business Professional Tool-Belt so you can succeed in your profession.
What Professionals Are Saying About MP4PM
“MP4PM works like a virtual project cockpit! Amazing!”
“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"
“I am honestly very impressed."
" ... 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..."

About the Author
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 main goals and motivations is to implement the PMI project management philosophy and a PMI-based project management methodology in my company and in my daily work. I created MP4PM to pass on and share this enthusiasm.
Knowledge and Expertise
My main focus over the last 20+ years has been project and program management. The skills I have acquired as a project manager and PMO expert in the IT services and outsourcing business have led to a passion for PMI's project management philosophy. I received my PMP certification back in August 2015, while I am a PMP in good standing and have just extended the validation of my accreditation until 2027. I am an enthusiastic PMP and PMI supporter.
I am also a certified Scrum Master (PSM I) and currently working on my PMI-ACP Certification.
And since recently I am also a PMI authorized PMP Trainer!
Regards mind mapping I am a Mind Manager User for many, many years know and I am a "Certified Mind Mapping Expert - CMME" by Biggerplate!
This was the driving force behind the development of the MP4PM framework and membership site, which allows everyone to apply the best-practices to project management and business processes and principles!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is "MP4PM"?
"MP4PM" stands for "Method Power for Project Management".
The MP4PM Framework is a tool-based framework helping you to perform the project management processes in your daily work more effectively. All the models, methods & artifacts provided with the MP4PM Framework are 100% aligned with the current PMBoK Guide and other PM Methodologies and Frameworks like P3.express, PRINCE2, SCRUM and many others.
I'm still at square one with my membership, is MP4PM right for me?
Absolutely - MP4PM covers every phase, stage, and step of the project management life cycle - from the very start where you just have an idea or some kind of business document to project closing and transition to operation.
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.
Does the MP4PM Member Site provide a platform for me to store and manage my projects on?
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 various PM Methodologies.education-based
You still need to choose an external platform to store your projects (we recommend Sharepoint).
Is all of the content available straight away or is it time-released (drip fed)?
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.
Why should I become a member today instead of waiting?
It's time for you to take action. Simple as that. If you want to boost your project visualization 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 want to make a difference, the time is now.
Another reason is, to join the "MP4PM - Membership Journey" as early as possible and at the lowest level possible. The earlier you join, the earlier you will be moved to Level "ZERO" (as mentioned above).
What happens if I decide to cancel my membership?
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 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.
And you can re-join at any time, but keep in mind that you will re-entry then at the Level that is in place at that time ...
Will the MP4PM Member Site still be useful if I'm not using Mind Manager?
Yes! While our content is created mostly with the Mind Manager tool, the majority of the content in the MP4PM Member Site can still be used without having Mind Manager or another mind mapping software.
And there are also some free or less expensive Mind Mapping tools available out there which can also import Mind Manager maps like XMind, FreeMind, DropMind for instance.
Is having a mind mapping tool mandatory?
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 mindmaps 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 your version is also being provided as an online version of the Maps which can be accessed online via your membership account or also offline by just opening 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.
are Here is an overview of which tools you all can use, to open the Mind Manager generated Maps:,
How can I cancel my account?
You can cancel your account at any time by going to your account page and selecting the Subscriptions tab. Here you will see an option to 'Cancel' next to your current subscription.
Click the Cancel link, select the reason you wish to cancel and then confirm your cancellation and you're all done. You'll receive an email confirmation that cancellation was successful.

Once you cancel your account you will retain access to MP4PM until your current subscription period ends. You can of course rejoin anytime in the future!
Please cancel your account BEFORE your next payment is due. We are in Germany so any date you see in your account is based on the CET (Central Europe Time) timezone and so it is best to cancel at least 24 hours in advance to ensure you are not charged due to time differences. You will retain access to MP4PM until your next payment is due, so you can cancel as far in advance as you would like.
My Payment has failed, what should I do?
These things happen! Don't worry though, your account will not be cancelled until your payment fails 3 times.
If you pay by credit card and you know that your card details have changed then you can go to your account page select the Subscriptions tab and you should see a link to 'Update Billing Details'. Once you change your card details your payment will be processed immediately.
If you pay by PayPal please ensure that there are adequate funds in your account so that payment will go through when payment is tried again. Unfortunately there is no way to change when PayPal will attempt to take payments, or to push the payment through earlier.
Payment will automatically be tried again by our payment processors 4-5 days after a failed payment, but you will lose access to the MP4PM membership site until payment is successful. We will try to collect payment 3 times after which your account will be automatically cancelled.
If your subscription is cancelled due to failed payments, you will need to sign up with a new subscription if you would like to regain access to the MP4PM membership Site.
Please contact us using the form at our contact page if you have any further questions about failed payments.
