China is Spreading the Word!

China is Spreading the Word!

We are thrilled to share some exciting news from our colleagues in China. The China Association of Change Management Practitioners (CACMP) has translated our keystone document, Standard for Change Management©, into Chinese. At ACMP, one of our goals is to help connect with our members and engage with our content. We applaud CACMP's time and effort to help spread the word about our community of practice.

At ACMP HQ, our official language is English and most of the content we provide is in that vernacular. We understand that English is not the primary language of many of our members and that this could cause unwanted difficulty when it comes to preparing for the CCMP™ and then following the best practices laid out in the Standard. Therefore, ACMP encourages change management practitioners worldwide to obtain approval from ACMP to translate the Standard for Change Management into their language. However, at this time, we cannot review or approve any translated versions of the Standard for Change Management since our official language is English. Reach out to Alissa if you have any questions or interest in obtaining approval to translate the Standard.

We are thrilled and proud of our colleagues in China for promoting the change management profession and advancing the discipline. Our hope is that others will feel free to study in their language of choice and become a CCMP!

Thank you, CACMP!
