Minto Pyramid Principle

on Tuesday, 01 January 2013. Posted in General - Misc. Tips, Blog, BPM


Minto Pyramid Principle is a technique used for making decisions for business; it involves the use of diagrams and works through decision problems.

MPP (Minto Pyramid principle) is being widely used in consulting firms like (McKinsey,Deloitte, Gartner, etc…) and apart from them, I have not seen many clients trying to utilize this BDM (Business Decision Mapping) technique.

As consultants we structure our approach and communication logic around this and we are starting to see clients adopting similar flows and structure.

I still do not understand why companies are not recognizing MPP as a standard, there are many ways you can make logic flow but it is quite well structured within MPP.
There is no widespread knowledge about MPP. I have often used it to help clients in their thinking and critical communications. Most have never heard of it. I usually buy Minto's book for them and we go from there.

Here is a link to some interesting books on MPP

I think most companies can be helped by using MPP for business critical thinking.

The most important value comes from learning how others structure their thinking and it provides a clear workflow to the business issues, risks and decisions that need to be taken.
