Our community consists of organizations, practitioners, software vendors and academics applying our Enterprise Standards and Industry Standards within their fields of expertise. Depending on who you are and how you would like to use our standards, you have the following options to get involved:
Become a Practitioner
Becoming a practitioner requires certification. Our certifications are recognized by universities and industries alike. A LEAD certification permits you to use our Enterprise Standards. See the multiple ways to get trained and coached in your specific field of expertise in our Career Path.

Access to our Enterprise Standards has some cost associated with it (multiple users, administration, security, database, etc). If you would like to get access to our extensive database of Enterprise Standards and reference content, please fill out this form.
Join an Industry User Group
Access to our Industry Standards are only granted to organizations that are within that industry and does not require a LEAD certification. Getting access to our Industry Standards means joining an Industry User Group where you become part of developing and using the standards in practice. The administration cost for joining an Industry User Group is for organizations $3495 USD (billed annually) with a 3 year commitment.

Become a Follower
If you are not able to become a certified practitioner or join our Enterprise Standards or an Industry User Group, we recommend that you become a follower. As a follower, you will receive the latest news, invitations to webinars, conferences and certification announcements until you are ready to become a certified practitioner.
