4 reasons to earn global accreditation as Innovation360 Licensed Practitioner

Big data is the future. As an accredited management consultant with data analysis credentials, you will establish a reputation on the leading edge of business research. Your advice and recommendations at every stage, from ideation to implementation, will be backed up by data from the planet’s largest, most comprehensive innovation database. You will be able to learn from thousands of iterations of innovation projects and derive far-sighted best practices to guide your clients or your own organization.

The intelligent adoption of automation, robotics, and digital transformation are propelling innovative firms to the top of every vertical. Innovation360’s global accreditation covers the essential background you will need to understand next generation workflows and methodologies. You’ll be able to walk your client’s innovation footprint, productivity enhancements for routine tasks, and practical innovations in use by the new leaders in disruptive tech. You will guide them in thinking differently, from quick wins in process improvements to the restructuring necessary for business model innovation.

Raw data is not enough. Data analytics turns data into information, information into knowledge, and knowledge into wisdom. Your new role as an Innovation360 Licensed Practitioner in innovation takes you deep into the fields of AI-based analysis methodology and technology and enables you to craft tangible execution and transformation plans. You’ll help set up a culture of innovation that nurtures and fosters creativity. Experience in project execution and data application create tangible sustainable value for your organization and your clients.

No one can do it alone. The 21st century has been defined by greater connectivity – of devices, of ideas, of people. Join a growing network of innovation experts with global accreditation and share both your successes and your thorniest problems with thought leaders on every continent. As the world gets smaller, your potential for achievement expands exponentially.

Level 1: For a team

You will gain the tools and analytical skills to measure, assess, analyze, and train a team to run successful innovation projects, portfolios, and programs. Typically, this involves a combination of ideation workshops, training, and coaching based on InnoSurvey®, with annual re-assessments.

Level 2: For an organization/subsidiary/business unit

You will learn how to measure, assess, analyze, and act on the innovation capabilities needed to get out of the red ocean and/or stay in the blue ocean. This usually involves a combination of analysis, training, and coaching based on InnoSurvey®, with annual re-assessments. In many cases, this is combined with strategy work and business-model innovation.

Level 3: For a group

This is for business leaders at the C-level who want to understand their organization’s capability for innovation, across all departments. Your purpose might be to assess and then strengthen the innovation capability or to identify specific groups with higher innovation maturity or urgency that can be built upon when designing organization innovation. This normally results in design decisions that result in integrated innovation, centralized innovation centers, or innovation satellites. Other InnoSurvey-based decisions might include setting up an innovation board or an innovation task force, and/or supporting specific divisions, countries, or business units.

Level 4: For a region

You will collect, identify, and analyze similarities and differences in innovation for companies within a given region, along with how they use their innovation capabilities. For instance, you could develop regional support and tailor initiatives to drive multi-scale innovation programs that will strengthen all of the companies involved as well as the local eco-system (Triple Helix). These advanced programs normally run for 9–18 months.

Level 5: For society

At the highest level, you will bring innovative thinking to distributed groups such as alumni associations, trade association or large-scale business networks. Typically, this involves a one-day innovation training with inspiration, learning, and the formation of individual action plans that will make your clients more innovative. There are usually 15–50 participants from 5–40 different organizations. All the participants complete InnoSurvey® in advance and then receive a 40-page fully automated report that will be the basis of the customized program. The theory and inspiration of these sessions focus on implementing innovation within each participant’s individual organization. Personalized reports and tasks, in addition to suggestions on how to work in small groups with peers, are supplied. Often the workshop is continuous by designing training curriculums and yearly re-assessments over three to five years’ time.
