Analyst - Enterprise Change Management, State Farm Insurance
Why did you decide to pursue the CCMP?
I wanted to add a change management related professional credential to my certifications. I also wanted to blaze the path for my colleagues within my organization, since I'm the first person at my company to earn CCMP.
How did you prepare for the CCMP?
I was already familiar with the ACMP Standard for Change Management, but I read through the Standard thoroughly, as well as the Code of Ethics. I also used the flash cards that were part of last year's conference swag, to help me memorize the terms and the elements that make up each section of the Standard.
How has earning the CCMP benefited you personally and professionally?
I've only had my CCMP for a few weeks, so there may not be many discernable benefits just yet... but I did receive many kudos and congratulations from colleagues and from my network, as well as a few questions about the process for becoming certified.
