Hammer Training and Certification

Individuals who complete three, classic Hammer courses will earn a Certificate of Process Mastery, one of the longest standing and most widely recognized credentials in the field. Created by our mentor, Dr. Michael Hammer, these courses provide basic awareness, methods, and skills for process management from three different points of view:

Power of Process:  What it is, why it's needed, how it works. Participants learn to raise awareness, get buy-in and sustain a process focus.

Process Redesign:  Project view - how to establish conditions for success, prioritize opportunities, innovate in design, accelerate adoption and engage the top team.

Leading Transformation:  Enterprise view - how to establish conditions for success, focus scarce resources on high-value opportunities, encourage adoption, and sustain results. Leading Transformation, the PEMM™ course, is based on "The Process Audit", a 2007 Harvard Business Review article, and covers the PEMM™ assessments

In all our courses and workshops, we strive to teach both new ways of thinking and field-tested methods. We use case studies from a wide range of industries and small-group exercises throughout the day. Our instructional style is highly interactive, and we challenge participants to look beyond their day jobs and develop a cross-industry, big-picture point of view.
