CCMP Celebrates Success!

On September 1, ACMP was pleased to host its first CCMP Class Reunion! Graduates joined virtually from around the world and spent time getting to know each other and sharing their experiences. It was interesting to see that 71% of them observed an increase in requests to connect on LinkedIn since getting their CCMP. A strong credential from ACMP not only demonstrates your commitment to a professional discipline, but helps raise your profile! In fact, they ranked "improves reputation" as the second most important benefit of having CCMP right after "establishes standards and compliance" for the discipline.

In addition, they noted other outcomes just from reviewing The Standard and going through the application process:

  • “Reminded me there is still sooooooo much to learn!”
  • “Caused me to reflect on what type of change management professional I am....what my world view is.”
  • “Since we are in the process of integrating CM into our PM process, this helped me better explain what CM is, how we do it, and really analyze what we need to do to integrate these processes with what the PM should/can do.”

CCMP graduates are continuously benefiting from their investment in the credential. What are you waiting for?

Our next exam window is open from October 15 to November 27. Applicants will have their results by end of year and have the opportunity to join the FIRST 500! Get started!

Achieve Change Objectives with ACMP’s Standard for Change Management©

What comes to mind when you think of a standard? You might think of a company standard at your workplace, an international standard by which organizations abide or an industry standard. You may even think of a personal standard by which you conduct your own behavior in a variety of situations.

Regardless of the type of standard, they all share the common goal of creating a basic understanding of how something will be done. ACMP’s Standard of Change Management is no different. Released in September 2014 after a rigorous development process, it provides a foundation for advancing the discipline of change management by establishing a common understanding and generally accepted practices that help leaders and practitioners achieve and sustain change objectives. The Standard also enables the delivery of the global professional credential, the Certified Change Management Professional™ (CCMP™). Download your free copy of The Standard here.

ACMP’s Standard of Change Management was developed through a global, voluntary consensus standards development process, consistent with ISO (International Organization for Standardization) practices. Over the course of two years, ACMP’s Standards Working Group engaged over 1,100 change management thought leaders and volunteers from 57 countries, each averaging more than 10 years’ experience, to capture, review, adjudicate and respond to more than 3,500 unique comments.

The Standard contains a full complement of information, including descriptions of scope, normative references, terms and definitions and concepts organized in five knowledge areas that describe the process groups of similar or related activities. These are:

  • Evaluate Change Impact and Organizational Readiness
  • Formulating Change Management Strategy
  • Developing Change Management Plans
  • Executing Change Management Plans
  • Closing the Change Management Effort

 Download The Standard today to read more and build your knowledge base in the area of change management!
