IPMA to promote European Commission’s project management methodology PM2
The International Project Management Association (IPMA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote the use of PM2 methodology as part of the continuing professional development of project professionals.
PM2 is a lean and efficient project management methodology developed and maintained by the European Commission. While it has been designed originally for public administrations and governmental bodies, it has been adopted by a wide range of public and private organizations thanks to its simplicity and ease of adoption.
IPMA will thus use the European Commission’s project management methodology PM2 for educating and training project professionals and certifying their competences.
IPMA was the firstly founded project management association in 1965, constantly developing and certifying competences through its network of national Member Associations and its accredited certification bodies. In this way, IPMA will scale the EU Commission’s methodology through more than 70 countries and 5 continents, leading to harmonised adoption, use and dissemination of the methodology (including all EU countries).
Thanks to IPMA’s strong international presence and connection with the public sector IPMA believes the European Commission’s PM2 will contribute to increasing competences of people working in project roles, project management processes and organisational capacities. European Commission can also expect the increase of absorption capacities of organizations delivering projects funded by the EU.
