AMA Certified Professional in Management™

Why is management certification important for your organization?

In a time when change is the only constant, managers’ competencies and strategies are of increasing importance. Research shows that managers are at the core of business success. The responsibility of a manager is to inspire action through others—to influence their character, development, and/or behavior.  

It is not enough that the results derived from an individual’s direct actions are well executed.
It is the collective actions of the team that drive the result. The right level of management competence and consistency of application can lead to enhanced motivation and team results, as well as improved employee retention.

Without a sustained and supported management development strategy, inadequate competence and inconsistency can cost organizations in terms of:

  • Disengaged employees
  • Poor strategy execution
  • Inconsistent results
  • Toxic business environments


Through research and an almost century-long history of expertise working with organizations, AMA has designed a body of knowledge that equips managers with the skills required to successfully lead people and teams that achieve business results. Therefore, a new standard for management excellence, AMA Certified Professional in Management TM, has been developed.

With the support of the Management Body of Knowledge, AMA can help you create a standard for recognizing managerial competence and consistency to ensure managers successfully perform and deliver results in your organization.
