The Association of Change Management Professionals (ACMP®) is pleased to announce the release of The Standard for Change Management©. ACMP’s Standard provides a foundation for advancing the discipline of change management, by establishing a common understanding and generally accepted practices that help leaders and practitioners achieve and sustain change objectives.
ACMP’s Standard was developed through a global, voluntary consensus standards development process, consistent with ISO (International Organization for Standardization) practices. Over the course of two years, ACMP’s Standards Working Group engaged over 1,100 change management thought leaders and volunteers from 57 countries, each averaging more than 10 years’ experience, to capture, review, adjudicate and respond to more than 3,500 unique comments.
ACMP’s Standard contains a full complement of information, including descriptions of scope, normative references, terms and definitions, and concepts organized in five knowledge areas that describe the process groups of similar or related activities. These are:
- Evaluate Change Impact and Organizational Readiness
- Formulating Change Management Strategy
- Developing Change Management Plans
- Executing Change Management Plans
- Closing the Change Management Effort
ACMP’s Standard will enable the development and delivery of global professional credential – the Certified Change Management Professional (CCMP™).
