NEW: BLUEPRINTER SOFTWARE® UPDATE: June 4, 2021
Certification badges are now available, and PowerPoint exports are available from the Executive Dashboard
Two updates have now been released:
1. CERTIFICATION BADGES: Once you have become either a Certified Blueprinting Practitioner or a Certified Bluebelt Practitioner, you can now download a badge. You can easily share to Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. The badge signals both your interest and expertise in innovation and new product development, helping you to stand out to current and even future employers. You can find this feature under your profile, within the Blueprinting Center.
2. EXECUTIVE DASHBOARD POWERPOINT EXPORT: Executives and those who have oversight into the Blueprinting efforts, will now have an additional tool at their disposal. They will now be able to export PowerPoint slides from the various portfolio views.
