CMI are the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence. They have more than 90,000 members.
They are the only chartered body in the UK that awards management and leadership qualifications, and the only body that awards Chartered Manager, the hallmark of any professional manager. They set the standards that others must follow. If you're a manager that means when you join the CMI you're making a statement about your standards and determination to continue to develop your management skills.
It's been estimated that at best only one in five managers have any qualification in management itself and evidence suggests that business performance suffers as a result. CMI is committed to working closely with Civil Service Learning and Premier Partnership to deliver recognised qualifications that most appropriately reflect the manager's experience and knowledge, as well as support their business.
