PM²: the EU’s Project Management Methodology, in support of CSDP Missions and Operations
The ESDC had the honour of co-organising, together with LAFP, a tailor-made course on the use of the European Commission’s PM² Project Management Methodology to support CSDP Missions and Operations. LAFP is a well-known training provider with vast experience of delivering high-quality, structured training to Missions and Operations personnel. The entire course was run as a pilot and was based on a realistic scenario in a fictional failed State. The scenario really helped the participants gain a better understanding of how the methodology applies and how it can be better adapted to their ‘environmental needs’. It should be noted that the course was fairly intensive, with over 80 % of the time spent on practical workshops. All participants were given the opportunity to implement the methodology and see the benefits which could derive from using it.
