Why did you decide to pursue the CCMP?
Over the last few years I have achieved certifications in Lean Six Sigma (Black Belt) and Project Management (PMP) and was involved in multiple process improvement and transformation projects. I always tried implementing best practices in my projects but somehow felt that something was missing. That something surely was the understanding of CHANGE MANAGEMENT. I wanted to pursue a certification program from a well recognized institution andcertification from ACMP was the best option.
How did you prepare for the CCMP?
The process for achieving CCMP was smooth. The CCMP Handbook is a great resource and the exam was in-line with the handbook. During recent years, I was thinking, reading and practicing change, hence passing the certification exam was not a challenge. For those who are planning to take the CCMP exam, I strongly recommend to understand the handbook.
How has obtaining the CCMP benefited you personally and professionally?
CCMP has actually helped me understanding the meaning of real change. Everywhere everyone talks about change but very few people actually understand what real change is. It is commonly known that 70% of change initiatives fail. I believe it's because people do not understand and recognize that change management is an integral part of the organization's transformation journey. Understanding change management standards and achieving CCMP has certainly helped me adopting organized, disciplined and focused approach towards managing change.
