The Authorized Innovation Assessor (AInA)® is GInI’s recognition of individuals who have met GInI’s standard for being capable of conducting innovation maturity assessments on behalf of organizations seeking to secure certification as a GInI Certified Innovative Organization (CInOrg)®. AInAs are also authorized by GInI to conduct accreditation assessments for Innovation Labs, Business Incubators, and Accelerator Programs, as well as to submit Innovation Endorsement Applications on behalf of businesses.
GInI AInAs are the only individuals authorized by GInI to conduct GInI Innovation Maturity Assessments. Organizations seeking to obtain GInI CInOrg certification must have this assessment conducted and submitted by an independent third-party GInI AInA. This enables GInI to enforce a standard of quality and effectiveness and ensure that all CInOrg assessments are conducted at the highest level of competence, objectivity, uniformity, and transparency. GInI AInAs are also the only individuals authorized by GInI to conduct GInI Innovation Lab, Business Incubator, and Accelerator Program accreditation assessments, as well as to submit Innovation Endorsement Applications on behalf of businesses, which similarly allows GInI to ensure an appropriate level of objectivity and transparency in these processes as well.
GInI’s certifications for professionals are – in keeping with industry best practices – all based on the use of a Role Delineation Study (RDS). This is a leading best practice used by organizations working to offer valid and reliable professional certifications, as it ensures the validity of the certifying exam and thus gives assurance that the exam properly assesses all of the knowledge and skills needed to carry out that role in the real world.
GInI credential holders can be confident therefore that their professional credentials have been developed in accordance with industry best practices and are based on the inputs of the practitioners who have established these standards.
