Director Project Management, ConnectiCare


Why did you decide to pursue the CCMP?

I have held my PMP® for over 15 years in addition to being Process Architect for building PMOs. What I have realized is that as Project Managers we are very good at the technical aspects of IT change, where we often fails is preparing the organization for the change, executing that change and having it stick. We need to embrace the organization holistically rather than with blinders on.

How did you prepare for the CCMP?

I started by reading the Standard; then I read it again and highlighted it. Then I wrote my own study guide which turned out to be 27 pages long; then I read that and highlighted my study guide.

I downloaded the flashcards and used those daily; making sure I knew the definitions and each phase of the change management process and each step.

I would work two of my 3 aids a day; Study guide and flashcards one day, then flash cards and re-read the standard the next.

Finally, I recorded study material on my iPod and listened during my commute.

How has earning the CCMP benefited you personally and professionally?

Personally between taking the prep course and studying I have grown and the tools I have at my disposal. More importantly to me I have had a focus shift into more strategic thinking and wanting to understand the how the organization works. I have also been able to identify gaps in my current environments and been able to offer advice and coaching to my colleagues on how to address.

I see having the CCMP™ adds a great deal of value when incorporated with my PMP® and ITIL certifications.
