Shaping ORMIT

Staying on top of digital developments

In the ORMIT Digital School, we provide new content every month related to a relevant digital competence or technology. In 30 minutes per week, participants learn about the most relevant digital topics, and their application in business. Our ultimate goal is to enlarge a digital mindset for employees.

Challenge

ORMIT specializes in providing talented and ambitious trainees with leadership potential to organizations. It’s important that these trainees have a broad knowledge of digital developments, and that they stay up to date with the latest trends. We had to come up with a way to fit a personal development plan in their busy schedule, and to make learning a more fun and engaging experience for them.

Approach

We first gathered input from participants by asking them to fill out a ‘FutureCV’ questionnaire, in which they had to imagine themselves one year ahead in the future. Looking back at today, which personal developments have made them proud? Which technologies have they used in their work? Which problems have they helped to solve? Based on the provided input and combined expertise of Digital Shapers, we have put together the content for the Digital School.

Results

Every month, we gather the most relevant information related to topics such as customer experience and artificial intelligence, and the application thereof in business. Content is brought to life with appealing case examples. Because not everyone has the same learning preferences, we provide a diverse set of content, suggesting articles, videos, podcasts, books, or events to attend. Knowledge is tested at the end of each month in a quiz, asking open questions or using specific tools.
