2020 was a wild ride. It was probably, barring 2008, the most rollercoaster year in the recent 20 years. Most organizations had to completely overhaul and rethink their strategies, operations, corporate culture, management style, logistics, and the way they interact with employees and customers alike. In recent history, this has been one of the most uniquely-challenging years for businesses and institutions.
Even for us, at The KPI Institute, 2020 proved to be quite an interesting experience, as we revamped our entire course offer, from the face-to-face format, to the live online format. However, this turned out to be a roaring success, given that we’ve had to organize additional sessions upon the already-planned ones, as participants kept coming in droves. This December alone we’ve scheduled over 4 extra sessions, on top of the 4 we already had planned!
Taking performance to a new level
In addition to all of this, we have added three new courses to our list of certifications – the Certified Agile Strategy Execution Professional, the Certified Strategy Development & Execution Professional, and the Certified Governance and Compliance Audit Professional.
CERTIFIED AGILE STRATEGY EXECUTION PROFESSIONAL
The Certified Agile Strategy Execution Professional course reflects on the best methodologies to leverage the benefits of deploying an integrated strategy and performance management framework within organizational settings.
CERTIFIED STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT & EXECUTION PROFESSIONAL
During this three-day course, participants will learn all there is about the strategic planning cycle, from development to execution, monitoring, and review, to building a strategic mind-frame.
CERTIFIED GOVERNANCE AND COMPLIANCE AUDIT PROFESSIONAL

Moreover, our course enables you to find the best solutions for your company to evolve beyond its current state and reach a higher maturity level.
We believe these new certifications are an exciting excursion into the world of auditing, governance, strategy crafting, and agile execution. While they are aimed primarily at advanced knowledge users, those who may not be the most proficient on these topics can still find valuable information, as we’ll look to facilitate an in-depth coverage of these subjects.
Therefore, even if you are not at peak knowledge performance, we’ll help you through these certification journeys, so that you’ll always feel a true sense of accomplishment upon graduating from one of our courses!
