The first of September, the PM² GROUP has been launched. One month in, the PM² GROUP has not been silent.
The first webinar is planned to provide an overview of European project management with PM². This webinar is given by Lex van der Helm and Laurent Kummer. Both Lex and Laurent are very active within the PM² environment and have provided a large amount of training in PM² in the last couple of years. They both are also very active project management professionals within the European Commission.
In the webinar, we will explain what PM² is and why it is relevant and what the PM² GROUP is, and why we have such high regard for PM². The goal of the PM² in enabling European project management according to PM² .
The PM² GROUP is a consortium, meaning that it is a collaboration between members who have a shared set of values, and who have common goals.
PM² group’s goal
PM² group’s goal is to facilitate the implementation of the PM² project management methodology in public and private projects as intended by the Center of Excellence in PM² of the European Commission.
The PM² group has set out three main activity areas to achieve this goal:
1. Auditing the supported public certification and trainer accreditation program, based on the EU commission’s guidelines.
2. Promoting the adoption of PM² in European public and private organizations
3. Facilitate access to PM² learning materials and certification for individuals who want to increase their employability.
Certification Council PM²
The PM² group is governed by the Certification Council, the Council is an independent panel of PM² and certification experts each representing different industries and interests. Council members are selected from member organizations of the PM² GROUP based on their experience, network and contributions to PM².
In last, a new member was added to the PM² GROUP, from who also a representative joint the council. We are happy to welcome Cronos Europa.
