WHAT IS THE PM² PROJECT MANAGEMENT METHODOLOGY ABOUT?
PM² is a project management methodology developed by the European Commission that is currently being rapidly adopted internationally and offers targeted guidance and orientation that matches the needs of each stakeholder. It is a lean and easy to implement methodology suitable for any project type and based on operational experience from projects run within the European Institutions, which incorporates elements from a wide range of globally accepted project management best practices, standards and methodologies, such as the PMBoK Guide, PRINCE2®, IPMA-ICB.
With the Open PM² initiative, the EU Commission decided to provide open access to PM² Project Management Methodology beyond purely EU institutions and including Contractors, Member States, and all EU citizens fitting the specific needs of EU Institutions and Public Administrations. Opening the PM² aimed to enable better project management in Europe and contribute towards the increase in project management maturity within the European Union for the benefit of all stakeholders.
The EC has published the PM² Methodology Guide in an Open Edition, encouraging the PM² community to re-use, modify, improve, extend, and share alike their customizations. The PM² guide provides: a project governance model (i.e., roles & responsibilities); a project lifecycle (i.e., project phases); a set of processes (i.e., project management activities); a set of project artefacts (i.e., templates and guidelines); a set of mindsets (i.e., effective beliefs and behaviours).
For your convenience, you may find the PM² Methodology Guide here.
The PM² Alliance team promotes and supports the use of the PM² Methodology for the effective management of EU funded projects. Also, the PM² Alliance cooperates with Affiliated Training Providers (ATPs) who independently organise training and seminars on the PM² Methodology and its implementations. ATPs have been through a vigorous vetting process and have proved their ability to deliver efficiently courses and seminars on the PM² Methodology.
