Agile PM² Essentials

This two-day Agile Project Management workshop is designed to help participants understand how they can incorporate agile practices into their projects, based on the Agile PM² Model. The Agile approach embraces change and provides mechanisms which allow project teams to better deal with uncertainty and deliver projects in an iterative and incremental way.

The workshop presents the internal and external factors that need to be considered for the successful integration of Agile practices into an organization’s project management culture and prepares participants to successfully apply key Agile PM² techniques in their projects.

Participants of this course will be engaged in a series of workshops combining theory and hands on work, starting from the creation of a backlog during which the initial epics are identified, to developing a release plan, and going through the repeating activities of planning iterations, managing planned work and evaluating iteration performance.

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.
