Certifications seem to be gaining increased popularity in the IT, HR and Project Management space, so this seemed like a way to stay competitive in the market. I also liked that this certification had more "meat" to it - going way beyond attending a training session - by requiring evidence of experience and expertise.
How did you prepare for the CCMP?
I reviewed the standards and reflected on some recent change projects.
How has earning the CCMP benefited you personally and professionally?
I have a Ph.D. in Organization Development and my dissertation was on cognition in change. I have also practiced as an internal and external change strategist for the last 6 years. I honestly wasn't sure the CCMP was "necessary", however as I was recruited for my current role, the CHRO and HR VP both specifically cited the certification as something they found attractive.
