What is PM²?

PM² is a Project Management Methodology developed by the European Commission.

It is available to the general public in the form of the “PM² Guide—Open Edition”, which was published under an open source license in November 2016 updated in 2018.

PM² enables Project Managers to deliver solutions and benefits to their organisations through the effective management of project work. PM² is a light and easy-to-use methodology which incorporates elements from a wide range of globally accepted project management best practices described in standards and methodologies such as PMBOK, PRINCE2, IPMAICB. It also captures operational experience from projects run within the European Institutions.

The PM² Methodology 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 and guidelines)

▪ A set of Project Artefacts (i.e. templates and guidelines)

▪ A set of Mindsets (i.e. effective beliefs and behaviours)
