Enterprise Accelerated Learning Approach

At DevOn, we see structured learning as an integral element for accelerating a successful digital transformation. As many companies offer roadmaps for maturing the state of DevOps as a whole, we believe that one of the most important aspect of such an approach is to consistently skill up your professionals which will lead to a higher level of maturity, as well as more confident and happy people. 

  •  Speed Up Time to Learn

  •  Scale Team Engagement

  •  Reduce Time to Market

  •  Boost R.O.I. at least by 200%

DevOps is new, complex and unclear to many organizations. There is no clear roadmap for companies on which skills and how to train their professionals. Mapping your organization’s landscape, defining your T-Shape roles and capabilities and offering your professionals learning journeys with clear direction, makes it possible for your organization to enable a culture of continuous learning and high performance.


DevOps Capability Model

What should your organization be able to do in order to deliver high quality software faster, and secure?


T-Shape Profiles

What does this mean for professionals working in your organization and how does it translate to their profiles?


Learning Journeys

Which learning journey do the professionals in your organization need to follow to skill up and add value?

The Problem

  • A staggering 87% leadership roles have acknowledged skill gap in their workforces in a recently conducted global survey by McKinsey 
  • 9 out of 10 CXO’s and managers say their organizations face skill gaps already & expect gaps to develop rapidly within the next 5 years.  
  • The COVID-19 crisis has only made this issue more imminent & urgent. From mastering new technologies at home to remotely managing sales relationships and collaborating virtually with colleagues & customers, the need for upskilling employees is only increasing. 

*As per McKinsey global survey report – February 2020 

How it works

To define the learning journeys for your organization, we will start by doing an assessment to understand your technical landscape, but also the way you are currently enabling learning and development, the expectations you have of your professionals and the future you have envisioned for your organization in a DevOps context. 

Based on the results of this assessment, we will together check if the capabilities you have in mind for the roles in your organization fit in a T-Shape profile and otherwise define them as such. 

The Result

The result of this approach is a clear and structured roadmap including learning journeys for specified DevOps roles based your organization’s ambitions and vision combined with research and data from high-performing companies. Your professionals will learn from the best master trainers with at least 20 years of experience in the field of technology and IT, who are not just trainers but play leading roles in the industry.   

This in turn will clarify the possibilities of growth and improvement for professionals, higher ESAT, lower attrition rates and more ownership. The elements needed to accelerate high performance in a DevOps environment.
