Answer: “MPMM project management life cycle was created with both the PMBOK and Prince2 in mind. We couldn’t create it to directly duplicate these 2 worldwide project management standards, due to intellectual property issues. So instead we created a detailed project management framework that is aligned with each standard. This means that the phases, activities and tasks that you complete in MPMM, are similar to that of PMBOK and Prince2.”
