A professional membership organization, the International Association of Innovation Professionals (IAOIP) is the world’s only innovation certification body, providing members with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities to deliver real change in their industry or field. The GISH (Global Innovation Science Handbook) is developed and maintained by members through a transparent and democratic process that assures everyone the opportunity to contribute. This is not someone's opinion of what innovation should be - it is the worldview of your peers and professionals from the community. We have completed the Certified Professional Innovator (CPI) - Base Level exam as well as the Certified Design for Innovation exam. We will offer the Tools and Techniques and Certified Innovation Manager exam for the first time in March 2016. Members are free to sit for these on-line exams at their convenience.
IAOIP-certified innovation professionals are equipped with the appropriate tools to make a strategic difference by becoming an active participant in innovation teams at all levels of their organization through knowledge exchange, research, conferences, training, and publications.
With individual, corporate, public, and non-profit members around the world (we have members in 30 countries), IAOIP is the leading international membership-based organization dedicated to the professional development of individuals working in the field of innovation.
