Enquiries about the ACMP, the ACMP CCMP™ and its connections to Prosci® Certifications always seem to be raised during our training programmes as well as during our outreach with prospective clients. Given the keen interest in the topic, let us clarify this for everyone in this blog post. Please help us to spread the passion for Change Management by sharing the message so that more change professionals and aspiring change practitioners learn about ACMP, the ACMP CCMP™, Prosci® Certifications and CMC Partnership.
ACMP is the Association of Change Management Professionals. It is an independent, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the perpetuation and growth of the discipline of Change Management. It was founded in 2009 by a small group of global change leaders and has grown to a international community of more than 3000 members. The ACMP aims to provide its members with a platform to learn, share and develop professional change practices so as to achieve intended change outcomes for themselves and their organisations. Read more about the ACMP and what they do.
CCMP™ is the Certified Change Management Professional™. The ACMP created and established the CCMP™ accreditation to recognise experienced change management professionals who demonstrate their commitment and consistent application of best practices in change management based on ACMP's industry-leading standard for Change Management® ("The Standard"). Unlike other Change Management designations, the CCMP™ is based on "international standards (ISO/ANSI) and extensive Practice Analysis Study which investigated leading practices in change management with senior change professionals around the world". In essence, achievement of the CCMP™ designation demonstrates an individual's success in managing a spectrum of change-related challenges as well as his continued dedication towards his/her mastery of Change Management skills.
