We had a project launch back in July 2018 that did not go well, and I was asked to stand-up a Change Management team in order to better assess and prepare for changes impacting the department. I have been an operations manager at Capital Group for most of my 25-year career and while I have been involved in many projects, I was not very comfortable with my understanding of how to best build this team. So, I decided to take a certification course offered by Prosci. During that course, I learned about the CCMP and thought it would be a good next step in developing my skills in the area of Change Management.
How did you prepare for the CCMP?
I read the Standard from cover to cover and then created an abbreviated notes document that I review a couple of times per day, a couple weeks before the test. I then used the flashcards that ACMP provided and reviewed those a few times per day starting about a week before the exam.
How has earning the CCMP benefited you personally and professionally?
The CCMP offers me additional credibility within my organization and will be useful moving forward as I lead a team of managers who are representing the Change Team for the department.
