The Open PM2 Project Management Methodology Initiative :

Open PM² is an initiative taken by the European Commission that brings the PM² Project Management Methodology and its benefits closer to its broader stakeholders and user community. The Open Project Management Methodology aims to help avoid repeating mistakes of the past of replicating efforts and sponsoring divergent Project Management approaches based on differences rather than investing in converging approaches based on similarities and common interest of the broader EU Public Administration and beyond.

Open PM² Project Management Methodology contributes towards the increase in project management competency and lead to increased project efficiency and success.
