1. Authority of this policy.

  • The goal of this policy is to accredit people to practice in the field of orgtology.

  • To reach this goal, we aim to follow through on the four targets below:

    • We define the category of Orgtology practitioners for which members can apply.

    • We define the benefits that accredited practitioners can claim.
    • We define the process of accreditation.

    • We set the rules for continuous professional development(CPD).Image result for blue go to the top symbol


2. Category of orgtology practitioners.

  • The IOI has two distinct practitioner categories, namely:

  • The entry requirement for an Orgtologist is a recognised master’s degree from a university of good repute; and

  • The entry requirement for an Orgtology Specialist is a bachelor’s degree from a university of good repute.

  • The reason that the IOI distinguishes between the two, is twofold:

    • The field of orgtology is research intensive, and the IOI will mostly rely on Orgtologists to contribute to this research.

    • The IOI gives acknowledgement to the advanced academic achievement that members with master’s degrees have.

  • Orgtologists and Orgtology Specialists will undergo the same training and can do the same work, therefore the distinction is only in title and in the IOI’s belief of the enhanced research ability of an Orgtologist.

  • Where the IOI refers to an orgtology practitioner, it includes both, Orgtologists and Orgtology Specialists.

  • It is important to note that a registered user on this site is not an orgtology practitioner. Any person can register as a site user. We regulate the use of this site via our “Registered Site Users” policy.Image result for blue go to the top symbol


3. Criteria to qualify as an orgtology practitioner.

  • The IOI will accredit a practitioner if ze:

    • Complies with the academic entry requirements;

    • Has completed the Introductory Course on Orgtology;

    • Has done training in at least one specialist field of orgtology; and

    • Has proven 50-hours of practical experience in the specialist field for which ze applies.Image result for blue go to the top symbol


4. Exemption from listed criteria for orgtology practitioners.

  • The IOI can exempt an applicant from one or more criteria points if:

    • It will directly benefit the IOI by doing so;

    • The applicant has proven hir ability in orgtology, but does not have an academic qualification; and

    • It is in the interest of the IOI do so.

  • Where the IOI gives exemption, we will do so in writing, with reference to the following points:

    • Reason for the exemption;

    • The extent of the exemption;

    • Conditions for the exemption; and

    • Review of the exemption.

  • The IOI Board of Directors must approve any exemption to a member.Image result for blue go to the top symbol


5. Practitioner Benefits.

  • Orgtology practitioners can claim the following benefits from the IOI:

    • Use of the title “Orgtologist” or “Orgtology Specialist”, depending on the category of registration;

    • Benefit from the value of a practitioner designation within the business community at large;

    • Public listing on the IOI website with a self-managed portfolio.

    • Use of official orgtology trademarks to perform their work, or to do research;

    • Deliver orgtology products and services within their own organisations or to client organisations. The IOI will limit such services to the specialist field for which they have registered a practitioner. Services may include: presenting of training workshops and seminars; team development interventions; mentorship; coaching; and consulting services.

    • Get discount on orgtology events.

    •  Networking opportunities with role players in the field of orgtology.

6. Continuous Professional Development.

  • To ensure that orgtology practitioners continually update their professional knowledge and skills for the end benefit of the organisations and clients that they work in and / or with, the IOI has a Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programme.

  • The IOI will manage a CPD programme in which orgtology practitioners must participate to maintain their professional status.

  • To maintain hir registration, an orgtology practitioner must, during every 12-month period:

    • Prove 50-hours of practical experience in each field of specialist registration;

    • Mentor at least one orgtology student in hir research project; and

    • Accumulate 25 CPD points.

  • Where a practitioner has registered for more than on specialist field, and uses these fields in combination, ze will have to prove 50-hours of practical experience in such combination.

  • We give a list of CPD Credits in Annexure B of this policy statement.

  • Where a practitioner fails to submit the required CPD points, ze will be given six months to comply. If the practitioner fails to comply after the 6-month period, the IOI will consider appropriate action, which could include the stripping of hir practitioner status.

  • CPD points are transferable, which means that ze can carry over the points that ze has not used, to the next year.Image result for blue go to the top symbol


Annexure A – Procedure 2-1: Accreditation as a Orgtology Practitioner.

  1. The prospective practitioner applies for the introductory course or for a specialist course. All first applications will be for an introductory course and will therefore have to submit more information and supporting documentation than with subsequent registrations. The applicant will do so online.

  2. Where an applicant adheres to all the requirements as set out in this policy statement, the IOI will automatically register hir for the field for which ze qualifies. The prospective practitioner will not need to apply for this.

  3. The IOI will also automatically list the applicant on its webpage as a registered practitioner.

  4. The practitioner can then update hir online profile and will have the power to decide what information the public sees and what not.

  5. After registration, the practitioner must maintain the CPD conditions of registration as specified in this policy statement.

  6. On receipt of annual membership fees, the IOI will automatically renew a registration, provided that the practitioner meets hir CPD conditions.Image result for blue go to the top symbol
