The PM² Alliance has joined forces with, a partnership which will bring free and open source project management closer to project teams.

Keeping with our promise of taking the PM² “where no PM² has gone before”, today we are a step closer to our mission of enabling better project management in Europe and beyond.

OpenProject is the leading open source project management information system offering a powerful feature set that enables project teams to efficiently collaborate, plan, and track projects. The development team of OpenProject is already engaged with the tailoring of the OpenProject application to support the management of projects with the PM² Methodology.

The PM² Alliance has always championed for methods and tools that enable better and easier project management. But high costs and steep learning curves of proprietary standards and tools have created barriers in the adoption of project management solutions. 

The PM² Alliance and OpenProject collaboration will a bring a PM² alliagned version of the OpenProject application to the PM² user community, while also taking the benefits of the PM² Methodology closer to all OpenProject users.

“We share a common vision but also the same passion in serving the end-user with solutions that enable better project management with minimum upfront cost, effort or set-up time”.

“Together we mobilise our collective power and resources needed to make change happen in the area of free open source project management solutions”.

Niels Lindenthal

CEO of OpenProject.ORG
