ESI International and IPS Learning Integrate to form Strategy Execution

 Arlington, VA – October 22, 2015

ESI International, one of the world’s largest project management performance education companies, along with IPS Learning, today announced their integration to form Strategy Execution, a TwentyEighty Inc. company, that is now a global leader in helping companies turn planning into action.

“Research clearly shows that one of the biggest challenges in business today is aligning strategic intent with organizational performance,” said Trey Campbell, President of Strategy Execution. “Our comprehensive offerings of performance education courses, tools and resources combine the best of cutting-edge university research and proven business techniques to increase alignment and engagement across teams, business units and the entire enterprise.”

ESI was founded in 1981 and has helped more than 1.5 million professionals grow their skills in project, program and portfolio management; business analysis; and contract management. In addition to ESI’s more than 100 courses delivered in more than a dozen languages at hundreds of locations worldwide, it offers a broad range of professional education certificates.

IPS was founded in 1988, initially as a consultancy focused on advanced project and program management as well as strategy execution. It later expanded to offer workshops as well as formal training. In 2013 it co-led the launch of The Strategic Execution Conference.   

The combined companies will have offices in more than 20 cities in 15 countries around the world and will maintain its global headquarters in Arlington, Va.,  as well as regional headquarters in London for Europe, the Middle East and Africa; and Singapore for the Asia Pacific.
