Certification

Through a partnership with professional development organizations including Market-Driven Business, Product Growth Leaders, and Under10 Consulting, certification programs are now available for the Quartz Open Framework, providing a non-proprietary option for product professionals.

The Quartz Open Framework is an open product innovation methodology. It provides a common language for business across teams, remains fluid and flexible, eases bottlenecks and improves innovation velocity, and enables you to build in cross-team process and methodology integrations.

We welcome contributions, articles, and case studies from anyone who has implemented some aspect of Quartz in their environment.
