Take Control of Your Learning Program 

Learning needs analysis forms the foundation for a reskilling plan, progressing through four phases to assess the current state. With these findings and your learning objectives, we create a comprehensive learning plan and collaborate with your team to design the training program. Additionally, we offer guidance in setting up a Career Framework to enhance your engineering teams and beyond. 


In 1 to 4 weeks, we determine the starting point for your learning journey. 

  • Map out the organization structure; 
  • Define short and long-term goals; 
  • Determine current knowledge and skill levels; 
  • Gather learning interests and needs per team and individual. 


In a period of 3 to 5 weeks, we pinpoint the right training for each individual and team. We do this by taking the three following steps: 

  • Analyze the information gathered from the previous phase; 
  • Organize a Learning Needs Analysis workshop; 
  • Scope the training programs to include other relevant domains, such as: 
  • Data, AI & Machine Learning, Agile & Scrum, Product Owner, Stakeholder Management, and DevOps. 


Based on the gathered information, it is time to create a Learning Plan. This plan contains a first proposal of the learning journeys per team/individual. Before finalizing the learning plan, we discuss the outcome with the relevant stakeholders per department/team. 


We use the final learning plan to schedule the sessions. The training sessions are scheduled based on the availability of the participants and can consist of a combination of on-demand, virtual, instructor-led training, coaching, workshops, webinars, and innovation/hackathon days. 

Why would you
upskill your people?

With new technologies developing at lightning speed and a challenging job market, finding and retaining the right people is a daunting task.

However, there’s a shortage in skills rather than a shortage in people. That’s why 50% of all employees will have to upskill within the coming five years, World Economic Forum already warned us.

Upskilling your employees is the best solution to bridge that skills gap. We know that upskilling will lift your employees’ spirit and give them a sense of belonging, knowing their employer invests in them.

Similarly, talented people are attracted to organizations willing to invest in their personal development. Ultimately, upskilling is between 72% and 90% cheaper than hiring new talent.

Benefits of upskilling your organization

Boost business results with improved skills.

Enhance employee belonging and satisfaction.

Improve employee retention.

Increase team efficiency.

Attract new talent.

Prepare for future changes.
