ESAII is driven by its core values:

  • Visionary Leadership – We look for solutions to emerging organizational challenges, and new solutions to everyday business issues and problems.
  • Customer-driven Excellence – We exist to serve our clients.  Everything we do is for them.
  • Organizational and Personal Learning – We continuously assess our performance (products, services, and processes) for the purpose of continuous improvement and innovation.
  • Valuing Workforce Members and Partners – We are committed to the satisfaction, development, engagement, and well-being of our Members, our partners, and the public at large.
  • Agility – We strive for ever more rapid, flexible, and customized responses to our customers’ requirements.
  • Focus on the Future – We are ever vigilant for emerging issues.  We look far into the future and forecast the issues and problems of the future, and proactively address those issues and problems.
  • Managing for Innovation – We look for new, better, faster, cheaper ways of meeting the needs of our customers, stakeholders, and Members.
  • Management by Fact – We use data, information, and knowledge to reach our conclusions and to meet the needs of our customers, stakeholders, and Members.
  • Societal Responsibility – We are ethical in our behavior in all instances.  Our products and services are intended to serve the public good.  We support our key communities.
  • Focus on Results and Creating Value – We start each project with a definite outcome in mind.  That outcome is SMART (specific, measurable, actionable/achievable, realistic/relevant, and time-bound); and it creates or adds value for our customers.
  • Systems Perspective – Everything we do is aligned with our purpose, mission, vision, values, strategies, plans, and goals.  Our various programs, projects, processes, and activities are integrated with one another.
