The catalog of version 2 is online. It can be accessed via the “Download” menu.
The catalog presents all the components of the method, available or planned.
APMG-International, world leader in the accreditation of training, consulting and certification organizations, and the Praxeme Institute have signed an agreement to develop a Praxeme certification in French and English.
This certification will be proposed by a network of accredited training organizations.
The first level, “Foundations”, will enable candidates to validate their knowledge of the concepts and principles of the Praxeme approach and of enterprise transformation.
In 2013, the initiative for an open method took a number of significant steps forward:
- on the one hand, as regards publicizing efforts, with particularly important contacts in the public sector and the joining of large services and consulting companies;
- on the other hand, as regards content, with the first publications of Praxeme version 2.
Work in progress
Three projects are underway:
- the development of the Praxeme certification, financed by APMG International;
- the incorporation of the Performance Tree approach, by Georges Garibian;
- the drafting of terminological procedures by professor Loïc Depecker.
The General guide, version 2, is ready in French and in English. The final review is almost finished. Two additional chapters will complete this guide on questions linked to transformation, with the formalization of the support materials presented during the members-only training course “Praxeme Competences”. In addition to the projects mentioned above, topics that we will tackle this year – through our workshops or publications – cover MDM, SOA, enterprise transformation, the digital enterprise, the evolution of IS urbanization, and modeling tooling.
With regards to this last subject, I am pleased to remind you that Softeam, the co-founding company of the Praxeme Institute, has renewed its offer to members around the Modelio tool.
Our subjects remain challenging, therefore not always popular; our ideals on rationality and rigor do not always receive the echo they should in our professional environments. However, an increasing number of signs seem to suggest an awareness, even an expectation, which leads us to believe in a return to voluntary and controlled design. The transformation engineering that we promote, the modeling techniques for which our association has acted as keeper, are in the process of finding favor among decision-makers, concerned with current challenges.
And so today, more than ever, the initiative for an open method needs all the support it can get, both yours and that of your companies. This support can be shown by:
- joining the association;
- participating in our work and events;
- mobilizing efforts and helping in the running of the association.
The form and instructions for joining are available on the wiki.
Publication of the annotated presentation “Introduction to SOA”, one of the 26 pedagogical sequences of the “SOA, design of a Service Oriented Architecture” course.
The new version of Praxeme is currently being developed, in accordance with the agreed schedule between the Praxeme Institute and the Interministerial Directorate for Information and Communications Systems (DISIC).

Dominique Vauquier has published an article on his blog which clarifies the notions of aspect and of view. He explains how they are distinct from each other and also why we need them.
