K-12 SIS Network


The International Society for Performance describes itself as such:

The International Society for Performance Improvement is a non-profit membership organization that believes “Being Better Matters.” We help people and organizations make a difference. To their co-workers and clients. Their communities. Their world. By providing tools and strategies for effective and universal improvement, we are helping members create bigger impact, make greater contributions, and, ultimately, make our world a better place to be. 

The International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) and TIFPI are working in collaboration to train and certify Performance Improvement Facilitators. Visit ISPI.org to learn more about ISPI, and watch for coming announcements for an upcoming Performance Improvement Facilitator Learning & Performance Journey.


ISPI certifies practitioners through its evidence-based Certified Performance Technologist process in the work of systematic, organizational performance improvement — What is done.      


The Performance Improvement Facilitator Learning & Performance Journey develops proven proficiency in guiding improvement and innovation across groups and organizations, emphasizing how to facilitate this complex work – How it is done. Successful program completion results in the Certified Performance Facilitator credential.


Both credentials provide employers and clients proof of the practitioner’s expertise in skills that employers state are high-value, in-demand, and in short supply.
