International accreditation for corporate learning

CLIP is the leading independent accreditation system for corporate learning functions. Besides bringing internal and external recognition, it provokes a strategic dialog among a learning function's stakeholders on the role of learning in improving performance and accelerating transformation.

Quality benchmark in eight areas

CLIP accreditation benchmarks your learning function against international standards in terms of strategic positioning, marketing, external suppliers, the corporate learning team, programmes, services and activities, innovation and development, physical resources and administration, and global outreach.

Broad assessment scope

The CLIP's comprehensive framework takes a broad view, including all relevant stakeholders of the learning function, as well as covering all important strategic and operational aspects of managing learning and talent development within a corporate context.

Continuous improvement process

CLIP helps you strive for excellence in an on-going improvement process following each accreditation or re-accreditation, taking stock of where your learning function stands and where you would like the function to be in the future.

Respect for diversity

The CLIP approach is not prescriptive. No two corporate learning organisations are structured and operated in the same way. Hence, fully understanding the business and organisational context is essential when taking a view on how the learning function is part of the overall value creation process.

CLIP FRAMEWORK

EFMD_Global-Accrediation-CLIP_Framework

The CLIP system is based upon a conceptual framework of quality criteria which are reviewed continuously by the CLIP Steering Committee.

The CLIP evaluation takes a broad view of Corporate Learning & Development and covers both, the professionalism applied in all learning and development processes and practices, as well as their grounding in business and organisational reality and their link to the company's strategic and transformation agenda.

The 35 standards in the CLIP assessment scheme have been grouped into 8 thematic chapters. The number of standards in any one chapter ranges from eleven in the case of Chapter 1: Strategic Positioning to one only in the case of Chapter 8: Global Outreach. Each standard is support by a few criteria items.

STRATEGIC POSITIONING

This chapter, which covers 11 standards, is of paramount importance in the CLIP assessment scheme. It looks at the mission of the learning function, its governance, and how its strategic agenda is ongoingly aligned with the corporate strategy. It comprises the positioning of the function within the corporation, its internal structure, interfaces and the resources allocated to it.

TARGET MARKETS, MARKETING & PARTICIPANT MANAGEMENT

The six standards in this chapter address the definition and understanding of the learning function's target audiences within the company, its management of client (businesses, organisational units) and participant relations, and the quality of its marketing and communication.

PROGRAMMES, SERVICES & ACTIVITIES

With its portfolio of programmes and services on offer, the learning function should cover the company's relevant learning needs of today and tomorrow. The portfolio and all offerings should be ongoingly refreshed. The learning cycle of needs analysis, design, delivery, and monitoring experience and impact should be effectively managed.

EXTERNAL SUPPLIERS

When outsourcing parts of its operation, the learning organisation should follow a defined logic for outsourcing and clear criteria for selecting suppliers. It should effectively manage its external supplier relationships.

HUMAN RESOURCES:
THE CORPORATE LEARNING TEAM

The corporate learning team should be adequately qualified, deployed and exposed to the business. The relations to the various businesses of the company and the pool of internal experts that deliver parts of the program portfolio should be effectively managed.

PHYSICAL RESOURCES & ADMINISTRATION

The learning organisation should have access to quality learning spaces and dispose of adequate capabilities and processes to manage logistics, technology, learning analytics, and financials.

INNOVATION & DEVELOPMENT

The corporate learning function should not only enable strategy and strengthen corporate culture, but also be a force of innovation and change, of experimentation and discovery, and accelerate corporate transformation.

GLOBAL OUTREACH

The learning organisation must be in the position to provide, through its programmes and services, a global view across and beyond the enterprise and to promote intercultural appreciation.
