Implement change successfully

Structural change isn’t easy. Companies often lack the in-house skills to implement it successfully. The market offers very few – if any – of the profiles required. And if you have specialized employees such as Enterprise or Solution Architects, they might lack the support of hands-on training they need to fine-tune their skills.

Knowledge sharing

The XPLUS Academy was founded in 2015 to meet this challenge. We grow your skills through training, a knowledge sharing platform, and mentoring.

 

 

 

“We believe you can better master all the skills you need for a successful transformation through practice and training. At the XPLUS Academy, we’ve made it our mission to cultivate your potential and use the full-force knowhow of our senior consultants, clients, and learning partners.”

– Bart Du Bois, Partner XPLUS Academy

The Academy platform

Accelerating
professional development

The XPLUS Academy also serves as a platform where non-competitive architects can discuss, learn, train, mentor, and be mentored, together. From creating your own training courses to co-creating workshops with us, yourself, or your clients, the platform fosters knowledge exchange.

Our platform aggregates a large number of experts and helps to minimize friction in engagement volume or knowledge transfer.

It comes with transparent policies and feedback mechanisms. You can also capitalize on past architectural efforts by sharing your co-created trainings. You’ll even receive a commission for this.
