GIMI is an ISO+ Organization

GIMI is an ISO+ Organization

GIMI’s Model is fully aligned with the innovation intent of 56002. GIMI’s Model provides many tools, methods, processes, and planning steps that go beyond ISO 56002 guidance. Therefore, GIMI is an ISO+ organization.

ISO 56002 is a Non – Normative Standard which was created to:

  • Make it clear that managing innovation is a profession, accessible to all types of organization​
  • Promote benchmarks and exchanges of good practices
  • Encourage the implementation of voluntary approaches ​
  • Promote organizational agility​

After an exhaustive review, GIMI was endorsed an ISO+ organization, as testified in the following letter:

GIMI IMPACT, the program aiming to build a more Compassionate and Innovative Society

GIMI IMPACT, the program aiming to build a more Compassionate and Innovative Society

GIMI IMPACT is a social innovation program designed to empower high school students to solve the planet’s social challenges using innovation

The current education system has failed to teach high school students 21st-century skills. There is a need to shape our young people into future active citizens who will solve the planet’s challenges with innovative minds and compassionate spirits.

Our current education system is built on the Industrial Revolution model and focuses on IQ, in particular memorization and standardization. Students believe their schools are not preparing them for success in the job market. In both formal and informal education, there are few opportunities for developing skills in leadership, engagement, self-expression, creativity, or innovation.

In the same way, around the world, youngsters face significant challenges in realizing the importance of them being active citizens. Both developed and developing countries are threatened by huge problems such as water scarcity, poverty, climate change, terrorism, etc., and citizens think this is the government’s problem and they are not able to solve these challenges.

GIMI impact has the mission of empowering high school students to change the world and is developed to specifically build capacity by supporting educators and empowering high school students to build a more Compassionate and Innovative Society

This is the world’s first globally recognized professional certification for Community and Social Innovation designed to equip high school students with 21st-century skills such as problem-solving, innovation, empathy, and compassion.

"SWRL piloted GIMI Impact to 300 high school students and 20 teachers. In all my work, I can say that the only truly sustainable competitive advantage is Compassion. Innovation - or complex problem solving - is one of the most efficient mediums I know of to unlock the Compassion-state in all of us. If we want a better world, we need to raise and empower more Compassionate Children & Youth and unlock and enhance their natural ability to be innovative and compassionate."-

Grayson Bass, Manager of Smart Waterloo Region Lab

In Canada, it was piloted in urban and rural areas and teachers highlighted the “Montessori” effect which made teachers collaborate more effectively and use “inquiry-based learning”. The course called the attention of public school boards who wanted to apply the tools also for the senior leadership. 

GIMI IMPACT is equivalent to the GIMI Level 1 Innovation Associate designation and is based on the globally recognized GIMI training curriculum and focused on teaching social innovation to younger ages. 

GIMI with the DGEP co-founded the Global Council of Innovative Organizations

GIMI with the DGEP co-founded the Global Council of Innovative Organizations

The Global Council of Innovative Organisations (GCIO) is a network of organizations that drives innovation leadership in cities and organizations around the world. Co-founded by the Dubai Government Excellence Program (DGEP) and the Global Innovation Management Institute (GIMI).

Co-founded by the Dubai Government Excellence Program (DGEP) and the Global Innovation Management Institute (GIMI) in 2021, the Global Council for Innovative Organisations (GCIO) was established to pursue knowledge sharing and exchange innovation best practices around the world. This will lead to openness, collaboration, and co-creation between some of the most innovative entities. 

The DGEP and GIMI believe there is untapped potential in innovation ecosystems around the world, where there are many public and private organizations that have highly relevant success stories to share. In an environment of elevated disruption and rising demands of both citizens and customers, innovation in isolation is no longer an option.

The Council drives global innovation by clearly defining and executing its main objectives:

  • Share global best practices: Innovation leaders from around the world exchange best practices to inspire collaboration that helps to drive growth in their respective cities in their unique and different ways
  • Thought leadership: Global research and data will drive cutting edge research around the emerging key issues of society and solutions to mitigate these challenges
  • Develop city innovation rankings: The Council drives excellence in cities through the identification of elements that contribute to an overall index that defines the most innovative cities in the world

It is based on three key components:

  1. Global membership: The Council is comprised of leading entities from various cities around the world driving innovation in their respective local governments
  2. Powerful Mandate & Charter: The Council’s mission is to empower entities to develop high-performing innovation systems in local governments that are responsive to the changing issues and needs of society
  3. Launch in Dubai 2021: The Council hosted its inaugural Innovation Summit in Dubai 2021 to celebrate its global launch and excite other innovative entities or entity representatives to join

The Council’s mission is to empower entities to develop high-performing innovation systems in local governments that are responsive to the changing issues and needs of society.
