SMP Testimonials

I retired from the Army in 2012 after a 20 year career. The last half of my career was spent as a Strategic Planner, where I had the opportunity to participate and lead multiple strategic planning efforts around the world. I saw the SMP certification as an important credential that could help give prospective clients or future employers' confidence that my experience and knowledge was valuable in the private sector as well as the public sector.
Paul Robyn, SMP

I decided to apply for the certification because it is in line with my work and I viewed it as beneficial to my career and relevance in my profession. I found the application of the concepts within the testing process to be challenging but a great way to test knowledge of strategic management concepts.
