Project Mapping

Project Mapping

Highly adapted to the large number of situations which a project leader encounters, the Project Mapping makes you more creative when looking for ideas and facilitates a structured thought process. It allows for easy navigation from overview to detailed view.

The visual illustration maps are based on the natural functioning of the human brain to allow you to reflect, understand, communicate, and learn. You go faster.

This is a personal and group tool which focuses the thought process and discussion, and encourages participation.

Some Mind Mapping software applications featuring basic project management functions simplify the implementation of action plans or project management.

Project success is achieved at the beginning!

At the beginning of a project, a good project leader knows that he/she does not know...

Project success is achieved at the beginning

Bearing that in mind (!), the benefit of asking the right questions, listing what is known and what can be built upon, ensuring that the stakes and objectives are shared with the client, interacting with experienced persons, gathering opinions from the stakeholders, consulting more extensively with one's team members and their manager, seeking out feedback from experience, conducting an in-depth risk/opportunity analysis, listing problems, anticipating and analyzing several implementation scenarios, reflecting on different project structures, etc., prior to the formal launch of the project with the team is still underestimated.

A meaningful kickoff:

A meaningful kickoff

The kickoff is the culmination of this thought process by each of the team members with the project leader on his/her commitments and contributions to the project, and preparation of the work plan for the entire team.



Assisting project leaders in the discovery and acquisition of good practices (expertise) and good attitudes (life skills) to make them feel confident and improve their project leadership on a day-to-day basis.

Action with project leaders has positive effects on the other stakeholders, such as team members or managers (hierarchy)... or on governance bodies (steering committee, etc.) or on operation or standards (methods, etc.).

Process flow:

Mentoring - Process flow

In response to the project leader's expectations, the objectives of the action, and the plan, and depending on the project's status and its deadlines, the contributions are:

A concrete transfer of experience for a respected and acknowledged project leader.


MOST MOST - Communication

The MOST approach (Mission, Objective, Strategy, Tactic) facilitates structuring, negotiated delegation and control by those responsible for:

  • Projects and action plans,
  • Organizations
  • Change.

A means of sharing the vision, stakes, meaning, need, and purpose between the requester and implementer. An approach that develops a culture of responsible players.

A guiding analysis principle that goes from the general to the specific (top down). Ask the question "why?" before pondering for "what?" ». A method for validating a step-by-step action plan.

A way of assigning responsibilities in both the company and the project. An approach oriented toward negotiated delegation, mutual commitment, and obtaining concrete results. A new and natural relationship between the players.

A construction which distinguishes and combines the tactical part of the project, the how of the strategic part, the ambition and vision shared with management.

A high-end control, management, and decision-making tool using a structured reporting mode (bottom up) that assigns responsibilities.

A communication vector. A means of mobilizing and developing synergy.
