CPD Good Practice

The four stage cycle.

All members of CMI have made a commitment to their continuing professional development (CPD) and CMI recommends that they approach their CPD using the 4 stage cycle of Reflection, Planning, Action, and Evaluation.

Sometimes learning can occur unexpectedly through experience, i.e. it may start at the Action stage rather with Reflection, but it is essential that all managers regularly reflect on how their knowledge and skills need to be updated and plan how they will achieve this.

Chartered Manager

Chartered Manager status (CMgr), as the ultimate recognition of a professional manager, brings with it a particular responsibility for the individual to maintain and develop competency as a professional manager. All Chartered Members and Chartered Fellows are expected to not only maintain on going records of their CPD activities but for these to also be available for inspection as part of our sampling process.
