We are pleased to inform you that KNO, in partnership with the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI), is launching our new certification in February of 2018. We think that it may be of value for professionals working in capacity building for both donors and contractors. We would appreciate it if you might share this with appropriate colleagues or networks.
As you know, for decades KNO has been at the forefront of implementing rigorous and effective performance improvement methodologies in capacity building initiatives worldwide. A key element of our success has been the initial performance assessment conducted to diagnose institutional needs, determine root causes and define recommended solutions.
After replicating this success with a variety of stakeholders across many countries and continents to conduct these assessments, KNO in collaboration with Dr. Ingrid Guerra-López of the Institute for Needs Assessment and Evaluation (IFNAE) has refined our approach, methods, and tools to form the foundation for a rigorous certification program.
We offer the first of these webinar-based programs in February. Full information is linked here: http://knoworldwide.com/certifications/paax-certification/
The certification methods are based on our recently published book on Performance Assessment available on Amazon linked here.
This credential is an ISPI certification and fully aligned with the Certified Performance Technologist (CPT) program. For those with a CPT, it provides 12 re-certification points.
