It also covers the four basic support functions of quality, human resources, finance & accounting, and information systems. CIRM candidates are strongly advised to take the ECF exam either before any of the other CIRM exams or next if other CIRM exams have already been taken.

Identifying & Creating Demand (ICD)

ICD (formerly Customers and Products) deals with the business processes involved in the definition of the marketplace and in selling the products the enterprise has available, or is willing to develop.
