Transformation Manager, Markel Corporation


Why did you decide to pursue the CCMP?

I believe a through understanding of Organizational Change Management is critical when leading, or taking part in, large or transformative changes. Pursuing the CCMP meant having a strong command of the Standard, which represents the aggregation of a confluence of knowledge around change management. Preparation allowed me to explore new topics in change, reinforce existing knowledge, and even serve as inputs as I architected a change methodology that has proven successful at some large, multi-billion dollar organizations.

How did you prepare for the CCMP?

I leveraged the Standard and CCMP note cards as a basis for my studies. I took detailed notes while reading through the Standard to align the framework with my day to day work. Many of my thoughts extrapolated the information in the Standard which I was able to apply to some of the transformative work I was assigned while studying for the exam. This created a reinforcement of the knowledge required to pass the exam with real-time application and benefits to my organization.

How has earning the CCMP benefited you personally and professionally?

Validation of the requirements and understanding needed to achieve the CCMP is both self-motivating and appreciated among my peers. I was able to network with some of the first CCMP professionals that I otherwise likely would not have known about or communicated with. I continue to use components of the standard in my daily execution of change management activities.
