By ensuring the quality of individuals' ability to lead systematic innovation work, they can get a clearer role and can have a larger mandate in their organizations. The competence can be proven through a certificate issued in accordance with the RISE Certification Rules for Innovation Management Professionals.

To ensure that the requirements for personal certification for Innovation Management Professional are met, a certification engineer will process your application based on the certification rules. A decision is then made by another certification engineer who has not been involved in the process.
