BICSI Core Values

Integrity  Service  Excellence

 

Integrity is defined as the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles and moral uprightness. Integrity defines who we are as a professional association. Some of the moral principles include traits such as courage, honesty, responsibility, accountability, openness, self-respect, and humility. Integrity is also defined as the state of being whole and undivided. BICSI staff, volunteers, members, credential holders, affiliates, and all other stakeholders must strive to do the right thing for the organization, even when no one is looking. Integrity is first because it is critical to BICSI’s success, “… just as strong beams are critical to a house. If the beams are not whole, sound, or complete, if rotten is mixed with good, if termites have eaten the insides, then individual beams will break under stress; beams will fail in their relationship to other beams; nails will pull out and the house will fall.”1

Service to the profession is important. However, BICSI takes it one step further by encouraging service before or above self because it reminds us that we are all part of something bigger than ourselves, and that is the BICSI mission. It defines what we do as a professional association. BICSI staff, volunteers, members, credential holders, affiliates, and all other stakeholders demonstrate the following attributes, among others:

Stewardship: We plan and manage the resources entrusted to us with great care and responsibility.
Self-discipline: We adhere to policies and procedures such as the BICSI Code of Ethics/Professional Obligations.
Self-control: We do not behave in a way that would discredit ourselves, our association, or the ICT profession.
Loyalty: We are faithful to our BICSI commitments and voluntary obligations.
Inclusion: We all help create an environment free of fear, discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or unfair treatment.

Excellence defines how BICSI strives to do everything it does, from beginning to end and everywhere in between. BICSI staff, volunteers, members, credential holders, affiliates, and all other stakeholders all have a role in ensuring BICSI provides the highest quality training and education, maintains highly credible credentialing programs, provides highly valued membership programs that meet member needs, and provides responsive customer care that exceeds service expectations. No matter what role we have, we are all responsible for doing our personal best and providing a good example to others.2

BICSI will make integrity a daily practice through service above self, underpinned by excellence in everything we do to advance the information and communications technology (ICT) profession.
