IAOIP is an organization that is convening working groups to define innovation capabilities, develop a professional Body of Knowledge (“BOK”), and create base and specialized certifications in innovation. This is your opportunity to add your voice to the innovation debate.
Our call to action is based on the desire of organizations to qualify employees and new hires, for academic institutions to prepare individuals, and for consultants to prepare people to assume leadership positions in innovation. We are a global certification organization with working groups that develop and certify individuals as innovation practitioners, managers, and leaders. We hold one annual meetings where workshops and working group meetings take place. You will also find us offering certification opportunities at partner events around the world. Watch our event calendar for opportunities to take exams in a live environment.
We also offer certifications on line. Register in the online store for certifications and contact firstname.lastname@example.org
IAOIP is built of member driven working groups and special interest groups. Any member can join any group and help to drive the agenda and be an agent of change. Currently there are 12 working groups. Please refer to the Working Groups pull down for a complete list of opportunities for members to participate. The Association is set up as a social media exchange platform, which gives members the ability to collaborate with innovation experts from around the world.
IAOIP also has a jobs board to serve hiring organizations and job seekers.
Members also receive deep discounts at many of the most popular conferences from around the world. For many members, the discounts alone more than cover the annual membership. We also partner with many of these conferences in offering Continuing Education credits so that certified members can continue their innovation certification journey.
