Rolling out a digital accreditation / badging / credentialing initiative in a larger organization


Large organizations play an essential role in the adoption of badges and credentials not only because of their increasing need for capability management programs: they also provide economic opportunities for the labor market and alumni of vocational schools, colleges universities and training providers.

The challenge is how to start with a badging and credentialing initiative, how to ensure internal buy-in of both management and employees as well as matching capabilities to jobs. The working group provides a safe environment to discuss, plan, implement and improve badging and credentialing initiatives together with your peers and further stakeholders.



  • Badge and Credentialing Success Center (including pitch decks to convince internal stakeholders, marketing material etc.)
  • Maturity Framework to define current position and future goals
  • External pitch decks to form recognition networks with accredited education providers (e.g. to align leadership training with MBA programs)
  • Checklist for selecting platforms or developing own infrastructure


Open to participate also for non-members: Yes
