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:
Since the new millennium began, the emergence of new industries and professions has led to the demand for new standards and certifications at both the professional and enterprise levels. Current certification programs and entities can’t keep up and continue to fail to meet this new demand.
Several teams across the CredForce network are working on methods which are expected to reduce the go-to-market time for new or restructured credentialing systems. We are experimenting with how to blend technology with the established CredForce system to cut down the cycle time and reduce the costs of building certification systems for our client organizations.
The potential of certification systems to impact growth is significantly hindered by their restricted geographical footprint. At CredForce, another major subject of research is how to rapidly expand the geographical footprint of certification agencies. 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.
Organizations need to keep rapidly adding new capabilities to cater to the evolving demands of their customers. Studies on current management quality standards are commonplace. In contrast, studies conducted by CredForce-affiliated credentialing organizations, such as BCI and TMI, mainly focus on developing viable models and methodologies for executing global standards of performance and systems excellence that keep up with this evolution.
We are conducting studies on how to deploy web-based methods to speed up audits of legacy systems in organizations. In addition, we are exploring the deployment of network-affiliated consulting micro-firms to deliver cost-effective system improvement interventions to smaller and mid-sized business entities.
It’s important to consider how bodies of credentialing knowledge and standards of excellence enable organizations to remain in sync with the rapidly changing environment and how compliance with international standards helps organizations achieve credible validation of their capabilities to produce value for their stakeholders. Understanding this is a key element to unlocking the evolving future of credentialing.

People are the most critical resource for any company. To stay relevant, organizations need to adopt practices that will enable them to retain and future-proof their employees with new competencies. At CredForce, we’re working on a “Capabilities & Career Builder” application, which is aimed at providing ambitious middle and top-level professionals with their own web-based personal certification system.
Teams in CredForce’s Credentialing Services Group are engaged in a variety of such projects. They are cross-fertilizing knowledge, experiences and ideas of the certification bodies in the CredForce Consortium to explore what can be done to expand the scopes of certification and skills development for individuals.
Several other studies are also being conducted to understand various aspects of individual credentialing such as how individuals can use certifications to obtain credible validation of their professional capabilities and how certification frameworks can be in sync with work demands in volatile environments.

CredForce’s network of industry development experts actively contributes to several studies in areas like refining contemporary techniques for conducting ecosystem and industry-building interventions.
Some exciting research activities on macro-economic modeling have begun in the last several years. Efforts are underway to model the forces of globalization, technology and expanded cultural interaction to find out how to use them to obtain credible validation of industrial ecosystems in an increasingly globalized 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 departments regarding economics, business, industry, education, skill development and technology. This plug-n-play system will allow for the creation of a strategic policy framework for the development of the ICT industry in countries all over the world.

At CredForce, one of our main priorities is empowering developing nations with breakthrough models through which they can rapidly globalize their industries. Some of our teams are working on various projects relating to this issue – projects such as how nations build, grow and sustain their workforce, how they quickly and affordably obtain credible validation of their quality and how an internationally certified workforce impacts investments, industry growth and all-around competitiveness.
One of the many ongoing projects at CredForce revolves around the design of a nationwide workforce-breeding ecosystem. This includes innovating the existing credentialing models of CredForce-affiliated credentialing leaders to develop a robust, cost-effective credentialing system that nations can swiftly adopt.

All core research in this key arena revolves 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 obtain credible validation for their excellence.
One of the key ideas currently being explored is understanding the connection between educations institutions and industry growth, employability development and employment-base expansion. Another project is focused on devising low-cost, rapid-execution methods to help secondary schools align their systems and processes with global standards. We are also working on the development of a strategic national policy framework – an EduNet, of sorts – to integrate institutions throughout a country and link them all to a central education quality control system with a built-in certification mechanism.

Although we operate several unique partnering models, we continue our efforts to develop a robust, inclusive collaboration framework. This framework will connect partners, clients and associates worldwide and will enable our company to effectively leverage events and programs providing the much-needed offline foundations of such networks.
We are working on developing strategies and models that are more effective for bringing together nations, organizations, institutions, welfare bodies, experts and professionals across geographies, verticals and cultures onto the same platform. We need this platform to facilitate and promote regular and organized interaction, which will result in enhanced global cooperation on matters related to the growth and development of professionalism, competitiveness, education excellence and industry.
