14th International Conference – PM Best Practice

Sharing the Mindsets and Best Practices of PMMethodology

This year the HAU, GBMC and the PM²Alliance join forces to focus on the European Institutions’ choice for managing projects: the PM2 Methodology, its tools, techniques and mindsets and how they are implemented in various EU organizations within Europe and in Greece.

PM² (read “P-M-squared”) is a Project Management Methodology developed and supported by the European Commission (EC) and used and sponsored by many EU Institutions, private and public organisations across Europe.

The PM² Methodology incorporates elements from a wide range of globally accepted project management and agile best practices, standards and methodologies.

This makes it suitable for use by a wide variety of organisation and project types and size.

Is this conference for you?

This Conference is for anyone involved in projects who would like to learn more about the PM² Project Management Methodology and how this methodology can be adapted to any kind of project environment, both in the public and private sectors.

The event is targeted to: Project Managers, Operations Managers, Team leaders, Management and staff working in Public Administrations, Staff from European Institutions and International Organisations, Service Providers, and European Citizens.

This event is organized with the support of the PM2 Alliance.

The PM² Alliance is an international, not-for-profit organisation. Founded by PM² practitioners, the Alliance brings together individuals from institutions, companies and the academia to inspire dialogue, share resources, and address the field’s challenges while promoting the wider adoption of the PM² Methodology.
