Value of the CCMP™

From the Association of Change Management Professionals: 

Authenticity- Change management is a relatively new discipline and some may be unaware of the practice and its meaning. The existence of a certification provides evidence that a discipline is legitimate. Certification demonstrates the maturity of a profession.

Confirmation- A certification tells the world that there is a formal body of knowledge within a particular discipline and provides assurance that an individual has invested their time, knowledge, and experience to develop their expertise.

The Certified Change Management Professional™ certification confirms your education, experience, and knowledge as a change management practitioner. A person with a CCMP has proven that they not only know how to apply change management, but they have studied it, been trained in it, and have real-life experience doing the work.

Reputation- Consider how a certification can enhance your reputation. Organizations that are new to the profession of change management are looking for indicators for someone who can apply and manage change. When establishing whether a person may have the ability to lead change, a potential candidate with a CCMP certification demonstrates that they have skills and knowledge in change management.
