Landscape Ontario April 2017 Industry News
The Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA) presents the latest edition of business management training manuals — the recommended study material for professionals challenging the Landscape Industry Certified Manager (CLM) exams. The technical content and management perspectives do not vary significantly from the last edition; however, the information and graphics are presented in a fresh, updated and easy-to-read format.

These latest-edition manuals are a useful resource on industry standards, best practices and business guiding principles. There is one manual for each of the seven modules covered in the CLM exams, namely:
•    Corporate Financial Management
•    Human Resources
•    Marketing and Sales Management
•    Leadership and Corporate Citizenship
•    Strategic Planning
•    Exterior Production Operations and Horticulture
•    Risk, Law, and Contracts

Despite the updated manuals, the CLM exam has not changed and candidates can adequately prepare for the exam using the previous edition of manuals.
