About the Certified Product Manager Credential

The CPM® certification differs from an educational or methodology designation in that it is based upon global best practices that have been determined by analysis of actual practitioners in the field, and, therefore, continue to evolve with the profession. The CPM credentials indicate a thorough understanding of the functions responsible for championing new products throughout the front end of the product lifecycle, from inception through to launch. The CPM focuses on “go-to” functions that orchestrate internal activities and ensure the best possible outcome for the product.


The CPM® certification crosses both industry and national barriers making those holding the credential uniquely qualified to lead any product wherever it may be in the life cycle.

Individuals holding the CPM certification validate their product management skills in the areas of:

  • Building case studies
  • Writing business plans segmented for each major function
  • Market planning
  • Competitive analysis
  • Project plans for each major activity
  • Product specifications
  • Product launch plans
  • Product Life Cycle Project modeling
  • Phase-Gate Process modeling
