ESI International is now TwentyEighty Strategy Execution

The Centre of Excellence — A rare opportunity to join and share the benefits

Are you a senior member of your organisation and do you have strategic influence over the role of Project and/or Programme Management within your organisation? If so, become a member of our Centre of Excellence.

Join  

TwentyEighty Strategy Execution's ‘Centre of Excellence’ (CoE) group was formed in January 2009 to provide a forum for some of our most experienced and forward-thinking industry leaders to share ideas and best practices that will improve the performance of their organisations.

The mission of the Centre of Excellence revolves around 3 areas:

  • To provide a platform to share ideas and best practices that will improve the performance of their organisations
  • To learn about current and future market trends
  • To act as the catalyst for key industry leaders to network, build relationships with their peers and TwentyEighty Strategy Execution executives, and exchange information that will improve their operations.

Surveys

One of the activities the CoE members will be involved in are participating in surveys focussing on various topics.

These will be benchmarking surveys based on high level market research. These surveys will be open to all CoE members as well as targeted at other high level PMO’s. The idea behind these surveys would be to provide valuable insight into the world of the PMO, their challenges and successes.

Some of the surveys which has already taken place are :

  • The Challenges to Success for Project / Programme Management Offices
  • The Global State of the PMO: Its Value, Effectiveness and Role as the Hub of Training
  • The Global State of the PMO 2012: On the Road to the Next-Generation?

Events

Our events are a vital part of the CoE activities - and help us to remain thought leaders in the industry. These events explore very advanced topics and their objective is to provide the opportunity for our members to network with other colleagues on a face-to-face basis.

The events are a mixture of case study - to share knowledge and best practices, and workshops - to enable delegates to share ideas and experiences. The CoE hosts 2 to 3 events per year.

The events will generally cover various ‘Hot Topics’ and topics which were discussed in previous events were:
