DigitalScaler and ORMIT throw young talent into the deep end of the digital transformation pool
Brussels, 11 June 2020. Today’s economic situation forces companies to either accelerate or intensify their digital transformation. However, the right talent for the job is expensive and scarce, which often slows down the whole process even more. That’s why DigitalScaler and ORMIT now introduce the Digitizer Program, designed to help both companies and young talents move forward.
To come out of this crisis as winners, companies can count on these young talents, trained and coached by DigitalScaler and ORMIT. Trainees are happy with this solution as well, which allows them to be employable straight off the bat. This program offers them a head start, courtesy of the intensive training and coaching they’ve received.
More now so than ever, it is paramount for companies to move quickly to stay economically relevant. Circumstances are harsh: the economy is shrinking, clients are more demanding by the day and developments keep on coming at a rapidly increasing pace. Digital transformation offers a solution to stay ahead of the competition. Next to implementing technology, such a transformation is also concerned with making a business more agile and focusing on customer experience. This transformation also shifts the attention from the cost of digitization and the number of employees available to roll it out.
In reply to these challenges, DigitalScaler and ORMIT have come up with a solution hitherto unknown in the market.
The Digitizer Program integrates skills, agility, customer experience and personal development in a single package that immerses Digitizers in DigitalScaler and ORMIT’s extensive knowledge of customer-oriented agile transformations.

Tomorrow’s striking power
During the program, the Digitizers will work on a company’s digital transformation from within. Once the program is over, the company will be offered the opportunity to hire their trainee as a full-fledged employee, ensuring a seamless transition.
“The world is changing, and so are businesses. ORMIT guides companies into the next era. Because skills may change, but the need for talent will keep growing. Learning will become more important than knowing,” says ORMIT CEO Thomas De Wulf. “We want to support young talent and build a bridge between them and the business world where digital transformation is a high priority item”, continues De Wulf.
- With the help of Digitizers, companies now have the possibility to be up and running in a heartbeat. By involving young talent at the heart of their digital transformation, companies make use of a unique opportunity to keep the Digitizers’ knowledge on board. That’s nothing but good news to customers who want to be served better and faster.
- Even during this tough economic period, the Digitizers are coached to get to work as quickly as possible. While many companies have called for an education stop, our Digitizers are being developed and guided to become business agility and customer experience experts, backed up by their strong interpersonal skills. With this relevant digital knowledge and experience, they are well ahead of their young colleagues, fresh out of school and looking for the right job.
DigitalScaler and ORMIT use combined learning methods. Our process is based on four cornerstones: gaining experience, training, coaching and peer-to-peer reviews. A few times per month, all Digitizers follow a training, be it virtual or in the classroom. The trainings on offer are as diverse as they are in-depth, ranging from communication trainings and change management to leadership development.
“DigitalScaler adds the operational training”, says Sonja Noben, CEO DigitalScaler. “The emphasis will be on agile frameworks, tools and techniques up to and including customer journey methods and customer experience measurements.”
All the competences we deem necessary to be a good manager and lead a transformation will be taught. Right from the start, every Digitizer will be appointed a coach or talent development manager. He or she will help the Digitizer and guard over his progress.
