What are IPEs

As a Certified Business Innovation Manager (CBIM), an individual is required to earn Innovation Points Earned (IPEs) to remain a member-in-good standing. The IPE requirement is intended to ensure that an individual maintains and enhances his/her competencies following initial certification. By continuously developing and enhancing the skills needed to innovate through IPE activities, an individual is making an important investment in himself/herself and increasing his or her value to potential customers and employer.
