ICiPS in a nutshell
Our story – Founded 2012 by philanthropist Debbie Simpson as the official legacy body for the work of an Efficiency and Reform Group program to embed CI. The mission was to develop a community; share knowledge; undertake research and embed standards of practice. The rest is history.
Our ethos – ICiPS work is driven by a desire to improve public services for the benefit of all, and the belief that CI competencies should be recognised in the same light as other professions.
Our Governance – Run almost entirely by volunteers, ICiPS is governed by a Board of Trustees and informed by the Customer Focus Group.
Our members – From all sectors worldwide, ICiPS has guest, professional, corporate and studying members.
Our partners – The institute works closely with universities and industry specialists.
Our standards of practice – Individuals who meet ICiPS standards become ‘Professionals’. Training courses that meet ICiPS standards become ‘Recognised’.
Our ambition – To be at the forefront of CI thinking; the primary knowledge exchange for CI; and to uphold standards of practice.
