The OBoK holds and arranges all knowledge of the IOI.
All knowledge that we create on orgtology, must stem from its nine theories. In this, orgtology has one core theory, which gives birth to eight base theories. They are four for orgamatics and four for organamics.
Where we develop an orgtology field, we follow one of four routes. They are:
General theoretical research, which will involve the core and base theories of orgtology;
Practical research in the systematics of Org, which will involve a study of orgamatics;
Practical research on the dynamics of Org, which will involve a study of organamics; or
Practical research on a mix of the above.
Where we advance a practical solution to the systematics of Org, it must either be an add-on to a current orgamatics system, or it must be the development of a new system.
Where we develop a practical solution to the dynamics of Org, we must either enhance the way that we grasp a current dynamic, or we must devise a solution for a new dynamic.
Where the IOI must prioritise the research assistance that they can give, they will give preference to cases where the researcher gave notice the IOI before ze commenced with hir research.
Where the researcher is new to the field of orgtology, the IOI will link hir up with an experienced Orgtologist.
The “Body of Knowledge” section on the IOI website will always reflect the latest developments in the OBoK.
Make sure that a certified orgtology practitioner develops or supervises your product or service.
Submit an outline of your product or service to the IOI in the prescribed format.
The IOI will decide on whether to certify such product or service
Where the IOI does not certify the product or service, they will give feedback with recommendations.
Where the IOI does certify the product or service, they will notify the applicant with a certification number. They will also list such product or service on the IOI website with direct links to the provider.
Once the provider has received the certification number, they may use the IOI logo on their marketing material for that product or service. They may also mention that the IOI certifies that product or service.
One month prior to expiry, the IOI will ask the provider to resubmit the product or service. The provider will follow the same process as above.
