Presentation of PM2 Project Management Methodology at the 14th Project Management Best Practices conference

This year, at the 14th Project Management Best Practices conference, we go deep into the new PM2 Project Management Methodology – the free, simple to use and most promising methodology developed and supported by the European Commission.

Europe’s new Project Management PM2 Methodology is here to stay! Why?

– it is a free and open source Project Management methodology for all professionals and organizations (not only within EC)
– offers a full certification scheme with easy access to both professional project managers and students and those who don’t have project management experience.
– it has a proven track record of implementation success stories throughout Europe
– recently released new extention: PfM² Portfolio Methodology framework
– the certification was only recently released to all project management professionals outside the EC.

The conference will give you the opportunity to see for yourself what this methodology can offer to your career and your business.

You will find out who is behind it and why it is spreading so fast within Europe.

You will see how it has been implemented in 2 large, complex organizations.

We will challenge PM2 methodology by benchmarking it against current project management standards and certification schemes such as PMI, IPMA, PMBOK, ICB, P2
