Standardizing management skills.

Sue was recently invited to join the inaugural Management Certification Advisory Board for the American Management Association. As one of the nation's top leadership training organizations, AMA is creating the new standard for evaluating critical skills and knowledge at the manager level across multiple competencies and domains. These skills range from critical thinking and change management to data visualization and presentation skills.

In developing this new skills framework from which the management certification exam has been derived, AMA reached out to a handful of thought leaders from education, industry and consulting. These 17 individuals now comprise the AMA Management Certification Advisory Board.

Tapping into these broad perspectives will help AMA ensure that the competencies included in the credential cover what is truly required for professional effectiveness today and looking forward.

AMA's Body of Knowledge for Managers will be published in October and the first Management Certification exam will be offered in May. In the meantime, Sue is looking forward to working closely with experts in organizational development, training, diversity and inclusion, organizational culture, strategic alliances, technology, ethics and more over the coming months.
