Introducing "MP4PM-MindmaPping for ProjectManagement" - Part II

In Part III of the Introduction of our “MP4PM – Mind mapping for Project Management”we will not only provide you the next general “MP4PM” features; we will also introduce you the next deliverable/result of “MP4PM” so you can already see how “MP4PM” will work and look like.

If you have missed the first two Parts of our Introduction you should first have a look here:

Introducing "MP4PM-MindmaPping for ProjectManagement" - Part I

Introducing "MP4PM-MindmaPping for ProjectManagement" - Part II


Now let’s have a look on the next general features “MP4PM” will provide you:

MP4PM Intro part three

Not bad, right? Well, there is still a lot to come ... 1.1.2 MP4PM review Business Case


OK, let’s come back to the next installment of “MP4PM”. Again we had great support of the community and so we had just released the Version 1.0 of the second deliverable (to use project management wording). This time it is a map/template what should support you as a project manager in reviewing the business case/documents which are often the basis for a project initiation, right?

And so the map/template is called “review business case”.

We have promised, that “MP4PM” will be closely aligned tot the PMBoK Guide and the business case or equivalent documents are known as PMBoK Guide develop charter flow chartan input to the “develop project charter” process in the PMBoK Guide fifth edition, right?

We have done a version 1.0 already, but of course - like the complete “MP4PM” framework - this deliverable will be continuously improved and developed further. If you want to participate in this development, please feel free to add your valuable inputs in the corresponding discussion threads at the end of this posting. Any feedback is highly appreciated!

You can access an interactive online version of the “review business case” map here (or just by clicking on the picture above):

Please use this version for review only.

If you want to use the map and/or work with it, then please download it from here:

For downloading the map/files you need to be logged in on

“review business case” is not only available as .mmap (what is the MindManager file format, but could also be opened with Xmind for instance), it is also provided in several other formats like the usual MS Office formats for instance.

Please try out and let us know your feedback/critic and/or additions; highly appreciated!

In our next blog we will introduce you the next “MP4PM” features and may be we will talking already about the next deliverable what is actually work in progress.

Until next time ... ;)



If you want to contribute to the map please refer to the following discussion threads; we have created one discussion thread for each branch in the map for a better overview:

Hey Guys,

happy new year to you all.

Can anyone tell me how to manage that "rleated content/articles" thing?!
Some other bloggers have at the end of their articles such a reference and since i am producing an article series to this mind mapping thing i am highly interested in doing the same, but i can't figure out yet to do make this work ...
Any suggestions?

Many thanks in advance!



PS: I am actually working on Part IV of the series, but maybe there will be one or two other things coming before ... ;)

Hello Guys,

i am proud to announce that the corresponding webinar is finally terminated on Jan the 17th.
I hope you will opt in to the live webinar.



Already registered
Looking forward to it

@Vincent. great to have you with us. I am excited ... ;)

Hi Markus:

Is MP4PM a template or stand alone software? How do I get my hands on it?



Hi Ashiru,

thanks for asking. "MP4PM" is/will be a set of maps/templates for each and every single processes of the PMBoK Guide, utilizing mind mapping and mind mapping software (like Mind Manager; XMind, Freemind; ...).

To get your hands on it, please read the related blog posts here at within my blog. You do find the download links there also for the first deliverables.

In addition we have done the first "MP4PM" webinar as an introduction; you can find it here: comment has been posted below.

And finally you may participate in the related discussion threads here at Would be highly appreciated.



Hello Guys,

just a short status; i am actually very busy. I was adjusted to a new, very big and complex project within my company and so i have less time in the moment to work on MP4PM.
But it will go on, for sure, may be just a bit slower then in the last couple of weeks ...

If there is somebody out there who is interested in helping and participating with the development of MP4PM, please feel free to write me a note and lets discuss.

And if there are still some of you who didn't seen the very first webinar about "MP4PM" please have a look here:

It was a great experience and there where some great questions within the chat which (hopefully) all where answered in the webinar related Q&A section, please have a look here:

Any feedback is still much appreciated.

Looking forward to the upcoming webinar "MP4PM - develop project charter" ... ;)



Hello Markus:

Kindly let me know the details required, this looks interesting. I am currently exploring areas of unstructured/ semi-structured data in the area of big data applications. You can reach me on
