Is Your Business Ready to Meet Management Demand?

Regardless of an organization's industry or focus, managers are an absolute continual necessity in the ever-evolving modern workplace. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the employment of individuals into management occupations will continue to grow by 7% through 2028, which is faster than the average for all occupations. As companies continue to grow, more and more managers will be required to handle the day-to-day operations necessary to ensure organizational success. These businesses and organizations looking to meet the present demand for new managers are faced with similar dilemmas, which involves the need to:

  • Train and promote their current workforce to positions of leadership and management.
  • Offer practical and time-efficient solutions with positive outcomes for management training.
  • Locate an affordable and reliable method for evaluating, assessing and validating an employee’s ability to manage.
An Alternative to Management Degree Programs

In the past businesses have looked to four-year institutions or university degree programs to meet their training needs. What organizations have quickly identified is that its not practical, affordable, or even time efficient to go through the process of navigating the complexities of todays’ current management degree program offerings.

Move Your Business Forward

Forward-thinking businesses and organizations have discovered that the most efficient and effective method for validating an employees capability for advancement and promotion is through one of ICPM’s management certification programs. ICPM’s management certifications act as a reliable indicator that an employee has the skills, knowledge and abilities needed to perform in a management position effectively and efficiently. Not only this, but ICPM’s management certifications are practical, amazingly affordable, and time efficient when compared to management degree programs.

By integrating both of ICPM’s management certifications, businesses and organizations maximize their talent, grow their organizational structure, and strengthen their company culture.

ICPM bases the CS and CM certifications on the ICPM Competency Model. The ICPM Competency Model is an extensive global-practice analysis that incorporates input from subject matter experts, focus groups and the survey results of thousands of active management practitioners to identify the knowledge, skills, and abilities managers need to perform competently on-the-job.
