The Centre of Excellence in Project Management (CoEPM²) of the European Commission has recently released a Guide on Project Management Methodology. The purpose of the guide is to enable project teams to manage their projects effectively and deliver solutions and benefits to their organisations and stakeholders. PM² is a light and easy to implement methodology suitable for any type of project. PM² has been custom developed to fit the specific needs, culture and constraints of EU Institutions. The publication is available for free as download.
The PM² Guide – Open Edition is published with a full share and reuse EUPL License, and is positioned to become an open source methodology, meaning that reproduction and reuse is authorized provided the source is acknowledged.
The PM² Guide can ideally be combined with the IPMA Global Standards, e.g.
- the IPMA Individual Competence Baseline (IPMA ICB®),
- the IPMA Organisational Competence Baseline (IPMA OCB®) as well as
- the IPMA Project Excellence Baseline (IPMA PEB®),
which are also accessible free of charge.
- PM² Methodology Wiki available through EU Login (http://europa.eu/!Gu76mr – EU Login account required).
