The Centre of Excellence in PM² (CoEPM²) released the French version of the Project Management Methodology (PM²) Guide, which is now available to download from the EU Bookshop of the Publications Office. The translation of the guide is based on the latest English PM² guide version 3.0.1.
This new translation was made possible thanks to the PM² community in a quest to make PM² available to a wider European audience, contributing to a more efficient managing of projects throughout the EU. This guide marks the third translation (Italian and Spanish are also available) of the full guide, the summary of which is already available in 12 languages.
In the words of the translation team (acknowledgements within the Guide):
“The translation of the PM² guide into French answers a long-awaited request from EU institution colleagues (French being one of our official working languages) but also from many public administrations in France that are required to use French materials for their continuous professional trainings. Beyond Europe, this will also help the project manager community in French-speaking Africa who seek an open, proven project management methodology that would complement many of the EU funded development programmes on the continent.”
PM² is an easy to implement methodology suitable for any type of project. It has been custom developed to fit the specific needs, culture and constraints of EU Institutions, but also incorporates elements from globally accepted best practices, standards and methodologies.
