Make Your Career Stand Out!
This is the year of innovation – organizations are creating new products that deliver value to customers and create success for the organization. Prepare yourself now by earning a certification and learning valuable innovation practices. If you are involved in product development or management in any way, this is the New Year’s Resolution you need to make – get certified!
We are the chosen providers for not one but two of the leading international innovation certifications.
New Product Development Professional (NPDP)
The New Product Development Professional (NPDP) certification from Product Development and Management Association (PDMA) covers 6 knowledge areas:
- Business and Product Strategy
- Product Development Process
- Portfolio Management
- Leading, Managing, and Working with Teams and People
- Project and Product Tools and Metrics
- Market and Customer Research
Certified Innovation Leader (CIL)
The Certified Innovation Leader (CIL) credential from the Association of International Product Marketers and Managers (AIPMM) represents many of the current best practices and emphasizes both the managed front end and the new product development process, covering 8 knowledge areas:
- Innovation Strategic Alignment
- Ideation Management
- Business Case Development
- Knowledge Creation
- Project Planning

Both certifications are excellent ways to help you stand out as an innovation professional. We tend to think of the NPDP as an undergraduate perspective and the CIL as a graduate perspective. If you don’t have one of these certifications yet, you can’t go wrong choosing either. For more information on how they compare and differ, look here.
