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:


CPM is highly interactive and builds on the group’s expertise. You will learn from interactive discussions and have intensive ‘real world’ business cases and examples.


Our learning methods are firmly grounded in theory, but they emphasize practical learning and bridging concepts with practice. The certification is based on real business project success.

Peer Exchange

Participants will have the excellent opportunity to learn from each other and bench mark their knowledge and challenges.

Life Long Learning

CPM is the start of a life-long learning process and will motivate you to keep on developing your knowledge.
