Your statement contains a mistaken assumption. ISC2 is not interested in the Chapters having any actual power: ISC2 simply wants another (free or low cost) marketing platform/effort/volunteer(s).

 

>  Massive centralized control

I think your point is amply made by the new payment system, which appears to have had a drastic negative impact on the whole ISC2 enterprise.

Re: Member Dissatisfaction rising...

The only metric that matters when it comes to satisfaction is the number of certification renewals. Those stats could be quite telling this year, if released...

Maybe.

 

But many people have to obtain and keep their certifications due to job requirements.  So they don't have much of a choice in that regard.

 

I know when I was job hunting the lack of certs lost me a lot of interviews.  As a consultant with a company, I know that they wouldn't be able to submit for many bids if I didn't have certs that many groups are requiring.

Exactly. In my case, I'm greeted by such things when I check my inbox. Take a look at the most recent view, where at least 7 posts relate to 'satisfaction.'

This is a statement that can only come from someone who has spent some time

in customer/tech support :-)

 

(At one point I was making this complaint, and Gloria suggested that I put up a list, on the wall, with all the problems I had to solve, and then mark or cross them off as they were done, to get a sense of accomplishment, at a glance, when I got discouraged. It worked, and had other, unforeseen, beneficial consequences as well.)

In my dictionary, I said, in the entry for "gold standard," that it was the best practice for describing your standard, if you wanted people to buy into it. (In the entry for "best practice," I said it was the gold standard for security buzzphrases.)

I think prior to the "digital transformation" they were adequately staffed, but due to the numerous issues caused by the "upgrades" and these issues requiring the membership to constantly keep having to contact member services they are now woefully understaffed.


Be that as it may, it doesn't justify the performance now --- before taking the decision to remodel the site, the impact should have been considered, and adjustments made accordingly.

 

If this decision was taken by the BOD without considering all that, then it was VERY bad judgement; if they weren't adequately informed about potential impacts, it implies bad management.

 

It seems like they've neglected good housekeeping via Change Management when carrying this out.  Man Frustrated

Thanks; I hope this will explain it all. After all the waiting we've done, a few days seems a trivial time, even if it's not for a change.
