  • your commitment to industry-specific knowledge as your maintain currency with good practice and regulations.

Method of validation

  • understand what your organisation’s business is and how you deliver value to your customers
  • understand your organisation’s strategy, and actively contribute to realising its vision

For industry-specific certifications, eg. accounting, or banking, then regulatory-body or similar study and certification paths.
