ESI wins new contract with Microsoft to help them build internal Project Management Competencies

Monday, 24 January 2005

ESI International, the world's leading project management training and consulting company, has been chosen by Microsoft to partner with them to roll out their project management training programme.

Microsoft will be initiating ESI's Core Project Management Curriculum, leading to a Master's Certificate in Project Management from The George Washington University to establish a uniform approach and gain the advantages of best practice project management.

"ESI's global delivery capacity and holistic solution addressing all areas within project management made them the obvious partner for this initiative," explains Wayne Dalton, Regional Solutions Manager for Microsoft. "With their expertise, experience and knowledge, we have been able to build a program of courses that best fit with the organisational goals of Microsoft. Even in the early stages of the programme, we have seen a huge uptake and buy-in from those involved worldwide, which is very encouraging for the success of the programme."

Alan Garvey, Managing Director at ESI International says: "We are excited to be working with Microsoft globally to help them achieve best practice project management. Having worked with many organisations within the IT field, we are confident that this will be the beginning of another long-term successful partnership for ESI International."

Microsoft is the latest name to be added to ESI's increasing impressive client portfolio. Worldwide, ESI now boasts partnerships with a large majority of the Fortune Global 500 companies, facilitating 90% of the European top 20.
