The Quartz Open Framework Certification Program is focused on certifying the application of central concepts of market-focused product management.

The Quartz Open Framework is an open product innovation methodology. It provides a common language for business across teams, remains fluid and flexible, eases bottlenecks and improves innovation velocity, and enables you to build in cross-team process and methodology integrations.
