WHO WE ARE

Conference Committee with a few participants at the 2016 Conference

Founded in 1962, the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) is the leading international association dedicated to improving productivity and performance in the workplace. ISPI’s mission is to develop and recognize the proficiency of our members and advocate the use of Human Performance Technology (HPT).

Industries, organizations, and their employees working in different areas like line managers, human resources managers, organizational development consultants, training directors, instructional technologists, human factors practitioners, and project managers are members of ISPI. They work in a variety of settings including business, academia, government, non-profits, and the armed forces.

Increasing workplace performance requires a focus on results rather than just the solutions. To facilitate this approach, ISPI bases the practice of performance improvement on the successful alignment of the work, the worker and the workplace to enable the organization to:

  • Focus on results
  • Take a systems viewpoint
  • Add value to the organization
  • Establish partnerships

In 2001, a group of performance improvement practitioners from various countries founded the ISPI EMEA network with the vision of supporting the concept of ISPI in our geographical areas, sharing and increasing knowledge of ISPI practitioners and sustaining the application of HPT across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
