Course Description

Innovation is not an idea. Innovation is a discipline.

This 30 minute course was created to support the Free Beta Innovation Catalyst Certification exam from the Global Innovation Management Institute that expired January 31, 2014.

It still serves as an introduction to Level 1 from the four levels of global innovation certification offered by the Global Innovation Management Institute (GIMI). A Level 1 Certification Exam Prep course will be available for purchase here on Udemy soon.

In the meantime all FOUR levels of certification are available for signup for self-study here.

This is the world's first global innovation certification, and the only available certification supported by Hult International Business School, Innovation Excellence, the IXL Center, and the Global Innovation Management Institute.

Why Certification?

Innovation is now a required skill set.

Business leaders, professionals, new entrants to the workforce and students understand the need to develop sustainable innovation capability as a path to professional and organizational growth. Yet many really haven’t been through the cycle of idea to commercialization, so there is a lack of practical experience.

The Global Innovation Certification provides:

  • Tools & Frameworks
  • Clear Standards, Targets & Guidelines
  • Credit for Real World Experience
  • Action and Experiential Learning
  • A Global Community Network

The Global Innovation Certification can be used by:

  • Corporate Executives
  • Team Leaders
  • Practitioners
  • Educators
  • Students
