Product Managers come from various backgrounds and experiences. While these experiences are valuable in forming the skills of the Product Manager, their variability could mean that no two Product Managers have exactly the same knowledge when they step into the role. A professional certification authenticates the people who have successfully taken the exam and validates that they have met minimum global standards as far as product management is concerned.
One of the most globally recognized Product Management certifications is that offered by the Association of International Product Marketing and Management (AIPMM). The Certified Product Manager CPM certification.
The AIPMM is a global community of Product Management Professionals from over 70 countries. Founded in 1998, they offered the first industry and vendor agnostic Product Management certification in 1998 and since then their certification has come to represent a standard for excellence and a commitment to the Product Management career.
Bagging a CPM credential from AIPMM means that the holder has demonstrated full understanding in key product management skills such as the ones below:
1. Building case studies.
2. Writing business plans segmented for each major function
3. Market planning
4. Competitive analysis
5. Project plans for each major activity
6. Product specifications
7. Develop product launch plans
8. Product Life Cycle Project modeling
9. Phase-Gate Process modeling
10. Product/Market Data modeling (Source: https://aipmm.com/cpm)
Having a CPM credential indicates a sound understanding of the functions responsible for developing new products throughout their lifecycle, from inception to launch.
