TheOctalysisCertificate The Octalysis Certificate is the official badge of honor by Yu-kai and his team to validate that someone has the proper understanding and skills to wield the Octalysis Framework. Instead of taking an easy multiple-choice quiz, like many other certificates require (sometimes after a $1000+ payment), the Octalysis Certificate is earned by submitting a free form design. Following the Octalysis Strategy Dashboard, an Octalysis Analysis and Brainstorming. This is the type of work and discipline that true experts and designers use in real life projects to improve the world.
