CI International Delivers More Than 50 Performance Management Workshops for US Army


Washington, DC - March 30, 2007 - Leading international, organizational and individual development company, CI International, is moving towards completion of a large-scale task order from the US Army G-1 for Civilian Personnel. Working with prime contractor Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH), CI International has delivered over fifty performance management workshops to more than 1,000 Army civilian and military leaders across the entire spectrum of Army commands both within the United States and overseas.

The training is in support of the implementation of the National Security Person-nel System (NSPS) which is a pay-for-performance system that links individual pay to performance, individual performance to strategic mission objectives, and provides an equitable method for appraising and compensating employees. The workshops are focused on helping civilian and military managers improve their ability to develop performance objectives tailored to their organization’s specific mission objectives.

The training has been very well received. “We’re particularly gratified that many commands, which had initially scheduled only one or two workshops, requested additional sessions after seeing the workshop delivered. The material and the common-sense, hands-on manner in which it was delivered received high marks from participants and commands,” said CI project leader John McCann. CI International President Jon Hassinger noted that CI continues to receive requests for the training even as the contract is winding down. “It’s been great to work with BAH and with so many different Army commands during this process,” he said. “Effective performance management practices are vital to organizational success. Our practical, realistic, leadership-based approach seems to resonate with supervisors at all levels,” he concluded.
