Focused on Continuing Professional Development (CPD), Chartered Manager is awarded on experience, expertise and a commitment to management and leadership.

96%

of Chartered Managers use their designation as proof of experience in leading people and managing change.*

A Different CPD Experience

Excellent management and leadership skills aren’t gained by counting hours and points. The commitment to Continuing Professional Development that Chartered Managers make is based on an evaluative process which considers learning experiences and their impact on their workplace. The IML Member Portal allows Chartered Managers to keep a record of their professional development.

When recording what they’ve done as part of their Continuing Professional Development, Chartered Managers are encouraged to cover four key areas:

  1. Objectives
  2. Planning to achieve this objective
  3. Actions taken
  4. Evaluation of experience

34 Core Competencies
