Certified Performance
Improvement FacilitatorTM

 The Evidence-based CPIFTM  Certification

Organizations must adapt and evolve to remain successful. Collaboration and teamwork are critical for employees to engage to find better ways to achieve results, and to perform at their best. Individuals who can use proven practices and tools to guide others from across departments and functions to work together effectively to identify and close gaps in performance and sustain results add tremendous value to their organizations.

The Institute for Performance Improvement awards a fully evidence-based designation aligned to the ten Certified Performance Improvement Facilitator™ standards. Applicants complete an online orientation to the standards and application process, and document their work facilitating organizational performance improvement and innovation. Applications are submitted for double-blind review. Successful candidates are awarded a CPIF™ digital badge, an international verifiable micro-credential.

Announcing a New

Successful applicants are awarded a Certified Performance Improvement Facilitator™ verifiable digital badge, that recognizes their skills and contributions in workforce development, human capital management, project management, innovation and improvement accomplished through facilitated collaboration.

The CPIF™ standards were developed beginning in 2010 based on research of the practices of individuals who were effective in facilitating performance turn-arounds and sustained organizational performance improvement.

The Institute provides training for professionals seeking to develop performance improvement facilitation skills through its SUSTAIN!™ program, which is offered in a workshop setting or live online.  For more information contact Deb Page, National CPIF™ Director at Deb@TIFPI.org.
