About CPM Programs

The EPP Certified Pricing Manager® programme is the only pricing certification programme in the world with certification based on real business project success - and a proven ROI of 30x the investment. The programs are designed for experienced and highly accomplished pricing practitioners seeking personal career advancement and professional recognition.The programme is designed around the organisational and personal skill cards to perform on the different pricing maturity levels. No other programme is so comprehensive and practical. A good starting point is to assess your pricing maturity using the EPP Pricing Maturity Indicator (PMI®). Based on these results, you will be able to make an informed decision as to which programme level is best suited for you.

These four programs align with your pricing maturity roadmap. Certification allows you to build your pricing maturity roadmap, doing the right things right at the right moment.

Learning Principals

The programme is a blend of intensive knowledge transfer, interactive discussions, reflection and group work.

The idea is to make a concrete impact on your work. Therefore, the CPM is not only an intensive executive learning programme. It is also an intense experience and you will need to successfully complete a business project proven that you master your pricing and change capabilities to make things really happen.
The CPM® programme teaching approach is guided by four learning principles:

Interactive

Our in-class programme is highly interactive and builds on the group’s expertise. We make sure that you learn from interactive discussions with your pricing colleagues and trainers and make intensive use of ‘real world’ business cases and examples.

Practical

Executive learning is all about bridging concepts with practice. While our learning methods are firmly grounded in theory, they emphasise practical learning. You learn by reflection on your own situational context in the organisation and you learn by action to make the change really happen. Therefore, certification is based on real business project success.

Peer Exchange

Each participant has the opportunity to spend some time on the specific challenge of a participant's organisation. These exchanges provide an excellent opportunity to learn from the business practices and context of others. Participants give each other feedback and learn from the discussions.

Life Long Learning

Your learning doesn’t stop with the CPM® programme. It is essential to keep on developing : this is why the executive CPM® programme is seen as the start of a life-long learning process. For example, our CPM® alumni have the opportunity to be involved in the CPM® certification board as expert speakers in on-demand development programmes, conferences, executive briefings, etc.
