Practical Application, Real-World Impact
HCI Designation Programs are designed to drive practical, real-world application of concepts explored in the certification process. HCI Designations recognize work that advances the state of the practice, while solving real-world talent challenges within the candidate's organization. This is a valuable process for both organization and individual, and is a unique and transformational method for implementing new talent practices across the enterprise.
The HCI methodology is based on developing a business case practicum, aimed at an actual talent challenge within the candidate’s own organization. Framing the business problem, developing an effective plan, executing successfully against it, and measuring outcomes, combine to demonstrate the candidate’s grasp of key concepts and knowledge. At the same time, HCI practicums represent practical solutions that move the needle, and contribute real value to the organization. Practicums are conceptualized. developed and completed through participation in a year-long Masters Workgroup program. The Masters candidate gains from the insights of not only a Faculty Advisor but also a group of Peers.
