How do you determine what makes a qualified and competent manager? Without a reliable benchmark that can be applied across industries, that determination must remain highly subjective—and this can cost organizations in terms of costly hiring decisions, excessive turnover, poor strategy execution and a wide range of other problems. It can also impede managers in their own career advancement.
This webcast will discuss the need for management certification, how it benefits both individual managers and organizations, and the steps to become an AMA Certified Professional in Management™.
