About 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.

PM² is a light and easy to implement methodology suitable for any type of project.  It enables Project Managers to deliver solutions and benefits to their organizations through the effective management of project work. PM² incorporates elements from a wide range of globally accepted project management best practices described in standards and methodologies such as PMBOK Guide , PRINCE2®, IPMA-ICB. It also captures operational experience from projects run within the European Institutions.

Since its release in November 2016 the PM2 Methodology Guide – Open Edition, has made it to the Top 10 most downloaded publications of the EU Bookshop and is currently the No.1, leaving behind the all time classic publication on “How the European Union Works”! The publication is available for free download.
