BREAKING NEWS:  MSI receives CPD Accreditation

The Management and Strategy Institute is excited to announce that we have received accreditation status from CPD Certification Service to issue Continuing Professional Development credits (CPDs) for five (5) of our certification programs.

“This is an exciting achievement for MSI because it brings more certification value to our members” stated Michael DiLeo, President of the Management and Strategy Institute.  “The CPD accreditation is important because it is recognized both within the US and the UK.  We look forward to working with the CPD Certification Service and to continuing to bring high-quality certifications to our members”.

The five programs that are covered under the CPD accreditation are:  Six Sigma Black Belt Professional (SSBBP), Lean Black Belt Professional (LBBP), Strategic Organizational Leadership Certified (SOLC), Sarbanes-Oxley Trained Professional (SOTP), and Change Management Specialist (CMS).

2)  Fellowship discounts on ours are now automatic.  This means you'll no longer need to use your unique fellowship discount code each time you order a course.  You're discount is calculated automatically when you log in!

"Should we be more concerned about the pace of job growth or the threat of inflation?"  Great question!  Either way, it's clear that job stability still hasn't returned to normal yet.

Management and Strategy Institute Updates:

We're hard at work with all kinds of fun and exciting things in development.  We really appreciate our members and we like to keep you up to date with the things we're working on.  Here are a few updates!

1)  Additional Accreditation's - We're currently working with several governing bodies to add additional accreditation for some of our programs.

2)  New Certifications - We have some really exciting certifications in development.  Many of them are a direct response to feedback and requests we've gotten directly from members like YOU.  The next programs to go live will most likely be our Office Manager certifications.  Keep an eye out for these soon!

3)  Website - We have a new website in development.  Our website is pretty large so it will take at least a few months to prepare the new site to go live.  We'll keep you updated when it's ready to go live.

This is an interesting article on a methodology called "Design Thinking".  We'd love to get the opinions of our members on this.  Is DT the new TQM?

Perhaps this is a certification we'll be adding at some point in the future.  Thoughts?
