Innovation Certification and Licensed Practitioner

Advanced | Duration: 03:38 | Homework 45:00


The self-paced course is for individuals who would like to do our Basic Online accreditation (IMBA) at their own pace without personal support from Innovation360. The self-paced accreditation includes six months’ accreditation with access to all related tools, databases, templates, material, and the digital block-chained professional certificate. You get access to the block-chained certificate as soon as you hand in the last step of the online training (that is kept even if you do not extend the accreditation). You can, at any time before the end of the six months, upgrade to full 12-month accreditation with Instructor-led training (online), a personal Key Account Manager (KAM), access to webinars, access to the community, extra diagnostic tools, pre-sales, consulting support, etc. The yearly fee is USD $3000.

Prerequisites and audience

The self-paced accreditation is open to all – independent consultants or internals at an organization with a minimum of two years of consulting experience. Since all our tools are digital and the material is provided in an online learning format, the requirements needed are a computer with internet connectivity.

Course Goal

By participating in the Innovation Management Accreditation program, you also have the right to act as an Innovation360 Licensed Practitioner. As such, you can position and market yourself as a thought leader. Moreover, you can also assess and measure innovation capabilities on a team or an organizational level to quickly give advice on innovation management and growth strategies. You’ll gain access to all of the data, analytics, assessment methods, reporting templates, and support you need to win business away from the largest consulting firms. You will offer company execs hard numbers and evidence-based, data-driven answers on how to innovate for sustainable growth and profits. You can also continue without renewing accreditation and will have the certificate IMBA Innovation Management Basic Accreditation™️ but no system access.


IMBA Innovation Management Basic Accreditation™️ is the first level, followed by IMYB Innovation Management Yellow Belt™️, IMGB Innovation Management Green Belt™️ , and then IMBB Innovation Management Black Belt Accreditation™️. All accreditation levels come with a digital blockchain certificate (also called a professional certificate) that you keep regardless of whether you renew your accreditation or not (the first six months are included with access to our innovation assessment tools).
