On September 29th and October 6th we had some lively conversations with local practitioners exploring the development of the CCMP™. Many folks were curious about the pathway to accreditation and asked important questions we are keen to feedback to the global team working on the certification. The liveliest conversation focused on:
- Number of professional hours to apply for the CCMP
- Recency and relevance of training
- How this fits in for experienced professionals
These points and all other questions gathered will be shared with the CCMP™ development team. We know this is the first of many conversations we will be having in the coming months and we look forward to continuing to receive your thought provoking comments to ensure we launch a professional designation of the highest calibre. If you were unable to attend either discussion and want to learn more, do see the section on the global website at: http://www.acmpglobal.org/?ccmp
Your Input is Requested
ACMP Global will be launching a new change management certification in 2016: The Certified Change Management Professional™ (CCMP™). In preparation for that event, they are conducting market research and have asked for our thoughts about how they can effectively roll out this new change management certification.
There are two activities:
1. Please take 5 minutes to complete the following survey -- https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CCMP_Certification
. Your input is confidential. The survey will be open until sufficient responses are received.
2. Because they want very broad input from other professionals with an interest in change management, please encourage others to participate as well. You can forward this note, or use social media to share the request (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn).

Upcoming ACMP Toronto Event: How Change Management is Becoming Critical to Organizations Tackling Sustainability
In 2008, Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre (HFC) committed to meaningfully addressing its sustainability; that is, their performance, economically, socially and environmentally.

Join Randy Sa’d, that trusted consultant, with Rich Batchelor on November 11th
to explore the growing presence of change management in the sustainability space. Randy will share his experience with HFC and we will engage you in exploring the change management benefits of projects in the sustainability space.
