What is MPMM?
Invented by Method123 and perfected over 10 years, MPMM is a Project
Management Methodology which describes in detail the phases, activities
and tasks required to undertake a project from end-to-end. Every
task within the Project Life Cycle is described in depth, providing
you with all of the knowledge and tools required to deliver projects

Why should I use MPMM?
It's well known that a large percentage of projects fail to deliver
the benefits expected by the business. In fact according to The
Standish Group, more than 70% of projects fail to deliver on time,
within budget and to specification. So why do so many projects fail
to meet the customers' requirements? Poor sponsorship, lack of defined
requirements, and miscommunication between the project team and
stakeholders are some of the most common causes.
However the most frequent cause of project failure is the lack of
adoption of a Project Management Methodology. Without using a methodology
from the outset:
Project Teams start building deliverables without defining the project's
scope and objectives
Project roles and responsibilities are unclear, and lines of communications
There are no quality targets set, so it's difficult to know when
deliverables are really finished
The customer can never be certain of the project's progress or when
it is likely to be complete
Project Managers must attempt to manage change, risks and issues
"on the fly".
It's no surprise that many projects are cancelled before they
even reach the planning stage of the project. A best practice Project
Management Methodology provides structured processes at the outset
for initiating, planning, executing and closing projects.
MPMM helps you define your project objectives, create comprehensive
project plans and establish the processes required to monitor and
control your projects effectively. By using this best practice methodology,
