It’s a real pleasure to be the keynote speaker at the 2013 ICE Exchange in Amelia Island, Florida.  I’ve included four themes for how credentialing organizations can drive innovation:

  • Rethink your role – get in touch with your deeper purpose as an organization.
  • Create new learning models – tap into social learning and technology trends to enhance the learning experience and add value to certificants & those who hire them.
  • Expand your offerings – based on your deeper purpose, identify additional products, services, and business models that add value and diversify your revenue streams.
  • Disrupt yourself – real innovation requires new mindsets and behaviors. Use outside experts, qualitative customer research, innovation sessions, and other tools to stir things up and leapfrog over the barriers holding you back.

Here are downloads of the handouts that go into more detail on these strategies:
