PM² is a lightweight and easy-to-use methodology that incorporates elements from a wide range of globally accepted project management best practices described in standards and methodologies such as PMBOK, PRINCE2, IPMA-ICB. It also reflects the operational experience of projects carried out in European institutions and is suitable for any public or private organization.

The PM² Methodology provides:
– A project governance model (i.e. roles and responsibilities).
– A project life cycle (i.e. project phases)
– A set of processes (i.e., project management activities and guidelines)
– A set of project artefacts(i.e., project templates and guidelines)
– A mindset (i.e., effective beliefs and behaviors)
– A link to Agile practices (Agile PM²).
The PM² Guide – Open Edition is available for free through the EU Bookshop: https://www.pm2alliance.eu/publications/

In this course we will discover the guide and put it into practice through a simple project working in a team.
