Who Am I?

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 so i have decided to do a blog about it and its related certifications. I am also convinced about the benefits of “visual project management by utilizing the mind mapping method. This was the reason for me to create “MP4PM” – but more of that shortly.

I do have more than 20 years of management and leadership experience, including more than 17 years in Project and Program Management. I do have proven project delivery success in the information technology services and outsourcing environments. I have led direct-report teams of over 60 management and non-management resources, and project teams involving contractors, vendors, executives, and external consultant team members.

I was involved in the design, development, and implementation of the PMO within his employers organization. And i am still part of this PMO responsible for supporting the project management organization and its participants, such as internal and external customers, project managers, and team members.

One of my central objectives and motivations is to implement and deploy the PMI project philosophy and a PMI-based project management methodology in my company.

Knowledge and Expertise

My primary focus for the last 15 years has been Project and Program Management, and PMO. The skills i have developed as a Project Manager and Project Management Office leader in the IT service provision and outsourcing business leads to a passion for the PMI’s project management philosophy. I have earned my PMP certification in August 2015 and i am an enthusiastic PMP and PMI promoter. This was the driver 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 almost 2000 members (and continuously growing) and of course pm.plus has its own Facebook representation.
