The PM² Methodology is the official project management methodology of the European Commission and was first released for the EU institutions in 2008 and as Open PM² for the greater public in 2016.
It is a lean and easy to implement methodology suitable for any type of project as it enables project teams to manage projects effectively and deliver solutions and benefits to their organisations and stakeholders.
These goals and ambitions have a lot in common with HERMES 5, the Swiss project management methodology since 1975 and in Luxembourg since 2006.

You have followed the course, passed the exam and are now a proud owner of an ITIL certificate.
But what do you do next, how do you actually apply ITIL on a daily basis?

ITIL is created to adopt and adapt, to tailor to your organization, but that is easier than said.
That is why we invited our expert and trainer Kais Albassir to host a series of online ITIL user events.

During this first session, Kais will share his take on the ITIL application and provide some insights, tips & tricks and lessons learned. However, we also like your input. At the start of the event, we will have a poll where we decide together the topic to discuss.

The topics in which you can choose are the following:

  • From ITILv3 to ITIL 4: what are the differences? Why should we go to ITIL 4? What will it bring us?
  • Problem management: how to implement problem management and make it work with Incident Management to leave the catch 22
  • Portfolio management (service, product, supplier, customer,…) and service catalogue
  • Structure: is there a maximum of what you can handle?
  • How to convince Senior Management?

The ‘Trail and error. Applying ITIL‘ event is aimed at those with profound experience with ITIL (v3 or 4).
It is highly encouraged to share your own experiences/challenges with ITIL.

What does Agile mean to you?
At which level do you apply Agility?
And what is the actual Agile maturity within your organization?

These questions might seem easy, but they are more difficult than what they look like.
This is because there are many different perspectives on Agile and lots of different frameworks.
This can lead to confusion and stagnation of a change that could actually be very helpful for your organization.

We asked our AgilePM expert and trainer Kim Delgadillo to host a webinar about the different Agile Frameworks. He will answer whether and when it is worth it to adopt and apply an Agile work methodology. As an experienced consultant, he has made the wrong decisions in the past and learned very much from it.
He is able to tell you where and why to apply Agile techniques and what framework could fit your needs.

OpenPM² is a free version of the PM² methodology developed by the European Commission in 2007. Until the end of 2016, PM² methodology and certification were only available to EU institutions’staff.
Now the EU Commission decides to provide open access to the PM² Project Management Methodology beyond purely EU institutions and including Contractors, Member States and finally all EU citizens.

OpenPM² is based on best practices, standards and methodologies, such as PRINCE2, PMI’s PMBOK and IPMA, and it was adopted by all European institutions due to its simplicity.

OpenPM² addresses typical project issues like low maturity organisations, lack of executive support, inconsistent vocabularies between project actors.

PM² is open source: the European Commission aims at improving the effectiveness of EU funded projects(ERDF, H2020, Life etc.) by encouraging project teams to adopt a methodology and manage projects in a professional manner.

Are you involved in EU project funding (responding to calls, managing funds) and would you like to improve the quality of the proposals (better estimates, better scheduling and resource planning)?
PM² provides guidance for all people involved in such projects.

Would you like to know more about it?

Join our webinar and the PM² expert, Laurent Kummer.

He actively took part in the PM2 Initiative and he had a relevant role in the development of the PM² best practice. Laurent is the right person to address all of your questions about Open PM²!

When and Where

  • When: Right now! Recording available
