Who’s Markus (The short Version)?
Welcome to projectmanagement.plus or how i like to say “PM.PLUS“.
My name is Markus Klein, and I am the founder of this blog and community and the creator of “MP4PM – MindMaPping for Project Management”.
I’m a PMP certified full-time project manager making a living from doing what I love to practice. Project Management is not only a job for me; it is my passion. And I do love to coach and train others, share my knowledge, and hopefully, this way helping others and so I have decided to blog about PM and its related PMI certifications. I am also convinced about the benefits of “project management visulaization” by utilizing the mind mapping method. .That was the reason for me to start creating “MP4PM – MindMaPping for Project Management” – but more of that shortly.
One of my central objectives and motivations is helping others to implement and deploy the PMI project philosophy and a PMI-based project management methodology in there company/business; there daily work and may be even in their life!
My Knowledge and Expertise
I do have more than 20 years of (project) management and leadership experience, including more than 19 years in Project and Program Management. My primary focus for the last 16 years has been Project and Program Management, and PMO. The skills I have developed as a Project Manager and Project Management Office specialist in the IT service and outsourcing business has lead to a passion for the PMI’s project management philosophy. I earned my PMP credentials in August 2015, and I am an enthusiastic PMP and PMI promoter. This was the driver for me to create the popular “Project Managers PMP Exam Prep Guide,” to support aspiring PMPs!
Social Media Thought Leader
I have set up a few PMI certification related LinkedIn groups and i am administrator of the biggest and most active PMP related LinkedIn group:‘I want to be a PMP’. I am also one of the most viewed contributors in PMP and PMI related content/questions at Quora. The PMP related Facebook Group has already more than 2000 members (and continuously growing) and of course pm.plus has its own Facebook representation.
