Who are we?

BPUG (Best Practice User Group) Slovensko is an independent association of professionals, typically coming from project and programme management roles from both the public and private sectors. The group is made up of professionals who want to develop their expertise, and in leisure, to network with other peers to share experience, knowledge and best practice.
BPUG originates from the UK and was for the first time listed as a legal entity in public domain in 1993 formed as a group of users focused on PRINCE2 methodology ( PUG – Prince 2 User Group) with majority of experts from the public sector . This professional group continually builds on the activities of users of PROMPT project management method which was a direct predecessor of PRINCE2 used by the British government.

In 2005, PUG (PRINCE2 User Group) changed to BPUG (Best Practice User Group) as its members decided that the group should encompass other internationally recognized best practice models for managing projects, programmes, portfolios, risks and so on. Thus BPUG extended support not only PRINCE2 users but also created space for application of other OGC (Office of Government Commerce) products - MSP, P3O, MoR, etc.
In 2010 BPUG also entered the Slovak territory as a legal entity (public association) BPUG Slovensko which at the same time started collaboration with the British BPUG and other related professional associations in Slovakia and abroad.
