Chartered Manager status (CMgr)

You achieve this by applying to CMI and submitting work from the Successful Leadership module that reflects upon the impact of your leadership and managerial skills in the workplace.

  • It recognises professional managerial competency and functional ability.
  • It takes consistent high performers who are committed to current best practice and ethical standards to the next level of managerial awareness.
  • It improves employability and makes you stand out from the competition.
