We’ve designed the “Innovation Games® Certified Collaboration Architect” program to promote and facilitate the use of serious games in the business world. The program enables companies to identify the Collaboration Architects they need (based on experience, industry expertise, language and more) and helps Collaboration Architects promote their skills and experience and get more work– a win-win for everyone!
How to Become Certified
You earn credits that qualify for different certification levels. At the moment, there are three ways to earn credits:
- Sign up for an Innovation Games Online account and start facilitating games!
- Produce and/or facilitate in-person Innovation Games, Gamestorming, and other approved techniques and submit an in-person game credit report.
- Take a training class.
Gamestorming and other techniques
Do you use Gamestorming as part of your innovation toolbox? We support Gamestorming games, along with Innovation Games in the certification program. We’ll be adding other games and techniques in the future. Here’s our current list of supported games.
