The Future of Credentialing/The-Future-of-Credentialing/index

The Eight Core Disciplines of Accent

CredForce's global teams, its international partners and certification organizations on its network work in tandem on several projects seeking to push the frontiers of credentialing. Over the period of time, we, at CredForce, have identified ‘EIGHT’ core areas for further research. These areas are called ‘Disciplines’ and are as follows:

Discipline one

Discipline 1

Tech–driven Modeling of Certification Entities and Accelerated Commissioning of New Credentialing Ecosystems

In the new millennium, the emergence of new industry verticals and professions has led to the demand for new standards and certifications covering both enterprises as well as professionals. This is because current certification programs and certification bodies fail to cover these new verticals and professions.

A number of teams across the CredForce worldwide network are working on the methods that are expected to reduce the go–to–market time for new or restructured credentialing systems. Most of these projects are experimenting how to blend technology with the generic CredForce system blocks on credentialing in order to cut down the cycle time and reduce the costs of building certification systems for its client organizations.

Discipline 2

Network–driven, Globally Distributed Mechanisms for Expanding Acceptance and Adoption of Certification Standards across Geographies

The potential of certification systems to impact industry growth is debilitated critically because of their restricted geographical footprint. At CredForce, another major subject of immense research interest is how to expand the geographical footprint of certification agencies rapidly. Several live studies and real–time experiments are being conducted to understand the role of market and governance factors in the spatial spread of the acceptance of a credentialing standard.

Breakthrough Techniques to Enable Organizations to Expand their Capabilities and Competencies in Line with Market Demands

Nowadays, organizations need to keep adding new capabilities at a fast clip to cater to evolving/growing demands of their customers. Studies on current management quality standards and benchmarks are always ongoing. However, studies conducted by CredForce–managed credentialing organizations, such as BCI, TMI, SQBA and GSQI, mainly focus on developing viable and feasible models and methodologies that help in executing global standards of performance and systems excellence, that too, affordably and rapidly.

We are eagerly looking at conducting studies on how to deploy web-based methods to speed up audits and studies of legacy systems in organizations. Besides, we explore the possibilities of deploying consulting micro–firms and the network model to deliver cost-effective systems improvement/alignment interventions to smaller and mid-sized business entities.

We also invest resources in researching how bodies of knowledge and standards of excellence and credentialing enable organizations to remain in sync with a rapidly changing environment and how compliance with international standards helps organizations achieve, sustain, grow, prove and obtain credible validation of their capabilities to produce value for their stakeholders.

Breakthrough Techniques to Enable Organizations to Expand Capabilities and Competencies of their Workforce as per Market Demands

In the present economy, people are the most critical resource for any company. Organizations need to adopt methods and practices that will enable them to “Future–Proof” their employees and managers with new skills and competencies. At CredForce, an interesting project underway, for instance, is the development of “Capabilities & Career Builder” application, which is aimed at providing ambitious middle– and top–level professionals with their own, dedicated, web–based “personal certification system”. Teams in CredForce's Credentialing Services Group are engaged in such projects. They are cross–fertilizing knowledge, experiences and ideas of the certification bodies in the CredForce fold in order to explore what new can be done to expand the scopes of certification, skills development and capabilities transformation of individuals.

Several other studies are also being conducted to understand various aspects like how individuals can use certifications to sustain, grow, prove and obtain credible validation of their professional capabilities and how certification frameworks can be in sync with the work demands in today's volatile environments. If you want more information, wish to be involved in research or wish to share a paper or article related to the issue, please email to us at info@credforce.com duly mentioning your intent in the subject line.

Discipline 5

Alternative Industrial Ecosystems & Architectures for Nations

CredForce's worldwide network of industry development experts actively contributes to a number of studies, specifically in the areas like refining and beefing up of contemporary techniques and practices of conducting ecosystem and industry–building interventions.

Some exciting research activities on macro–economic modeling have started since mid–2013. Efforts are also underway to map out and model the forces of globalization, technology, and expanded cultural interaction and find out how to use them to build, organize, grow, sustain, prove and obtain credible validation of their industrial ecosystem in an increasingly globalized, volatile and disruptive environment. Some other related projects include the development of a plug–n–play industry information system, which will integrate all the databases of a nation's ministries and departments taking care of affairs related to economics, business, industry, education, skill development and technology and structuring a strategic policy framework for the development of the ICT industry.

discipline six

Discipline 6

Design of Alternative Frameworks for the Rapid Development of Workforce for New Industries and Functions

At CredForce, one of our favorite research subjects is empowering developing nations with breakthrough models through which, they can globalize their industries in the least period of time. Some of our teams are working on various themes, such as how nations build, grow and sustain their workforce and talent pools; how to help them prove and obtain credible validation of their quality and competitiveness affordably and swiftly and how internationally certified workforce impacts investments, industry growth and all-round competitiveness.

One of the many ongoing projects at CredForce revolves around the design of a nationwide workforce-breeding ecosystem. Another linked initiative is related to innovating the existing credentialing models of CredForce-managed credentialing leaders and developing an omnibus, cost-effective credentialing system so that nations can swiftly adopt it.

Please do write to us at info@credforce.com if you wish to know more or if you or your organization is keen to contribute to our efforts in the workforce development area. Do state your expectations and intent in the subject line of your email.

Discipline 7

Models & Mechanisms for Smarter Management of Higher Education Delivery Systems

All core research themes in this discipline revolve around how secondary, tertiary, and special education institutions can build more effective education products; expand their reach & impact potential; improve their education delivery systems and prove and obtain a credible validation for their excellence.

Some key ideas, which are currently being explored, include understanding the connection between educational institutions and industry growth, employment–base expansion and employability development. One of the projects, which is expected to complete soon, is focused on devising low–cost, rapid–execution methods that will help secondary schools align their systems and processes with global standards. Another project related to the development of a strategic national policy framework – an EduNet analogue of sorts – is to integrate institutions across a nation and link them all to a central education quality control system with a built–in certification mechanism.

If you are interested in understanding more on this or you are keen on contributing to this initiative, you are welcome to write to us at info@credforce.com. Do share your expectations and intent in the subject line of your email.

Development of Alternative Models of Transactions & Cooperation for Faster Growth of the Impact of Credentialing

Although we, at CredForce, operate several unique partnering models, there is no let–up in our efforts to develop a robust, omnibus collaboration framework. A framework that will link up partners and clients and associates worldwide, on the one hand, and on the other, will enable our company to effectively leverage events and programs for providing the much–needed offline foundations to such networks.

CredForce is working on developing event–based strategies and alternative models that are expected to be more effective in bringing together nations, organizations, institutions, welfare bodies, experts and professionals across geographies, verticals and cultures board the same platform. We need this platform to facilitate and promote regular and more organized mutual interaction, which will result in enhanced global cooperation on matters related to growth and development of professionalism, competitiveness, education excellence, and industry.
