Certification Programs

Through a partnership with professional development organizations, 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. 

The Quartz Open Framework Certification Program is focused on certifying the application of central concepts of market-focused product management.

Need an overview of the QuartzOpen Framework? Enjoy this quick session to learn the language of the key phases in the framework.
