Rick Rothermel, Executive Consultant Emeritus of LaMarsh Global, articulates for us the importance of the ACMP standard and how it has been evolving and will continue to evolve at the pace of change.
Because the ecosystem of business is changing rapidly, clients want things to happen quicker, more efficiently. They also want to develop the competencies themselves rather than hire on outside vendors. These competencies include Agile, leadership, ability to sense and respond, risk-taking, etc., which Rick argues all wrap around the standard. Therefore, it is important to maintain and adhere to the standard for use both by change professionals and the clients they help.
