Chartered Managers, an award only available through CMI, on average boost their business’ revenue by £310k over 5 years.

CMI can help you realise these productivity gains. Either through our formal qualifications, accrediting your organisation’s own training, or settting your managers on a pathway to achieving Chartered Manager status.
