Gladwell Academy

Ever since the company’s inception in 2014, Gladwell Academy has been a leading institution in advocating and bringing about Agile Transformations. We have done so through our scheduled courses, through in-company trainings at globally operating businesses, and on dedicated consulting assignments.

The range of courses and services offered at Gladwell Academy, as well as the amplitude of ways to ensure individuals and businesses continue to grow and stay ahead of the competition, has established Gladwell Academy’s authority in Agile Transformations. We are probably best known for our expertise with the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), being one of the first to introduce the framework in Europe and India.

We Practice What We Preach
The explanation to our success in such a relatively short timeframe and on such a global scope serves as the company’s business card and is as obvious as it seems: working agile! Gladwell Academy is shaped around cross functional, self-organizing teams that have people hailing from various industry backgrounds. From manufacturing to software development and engineering to the cultural sector.

All working together to dedicated goals, delivering measurable results in time-boxed increments. Starting from the idea to ‘practice what you preach’, our trainers and consultants maintain active roles in the corporate world, each bringing their unique experience with them in trainings and on assignments.

What intrinsically drives all of us at Gladwell Academy, is to train and equip the global leaders of tomorrow’s business.

Why The Need For Agile
We ourselves understand and experience that implementing business agility and digital transformation have become a necessity for businesses. The only way to thrive in a highly competitive and ever-changing global marketplace, is to work in responsive anticipation and no longer in reactive responsiveness. This requires constant adjustment, assessing ourselves and the course our business is taking. Setting clear and measurable objectives but maintaining the flexibility to incorporate new developments. The ability to self-organize around value is what truly marks an Agile Business.

What Motivates Us
As our CEO Miranda Goossens puts it: “What intrinsically drives all of us at Gladwell Academy, is to train and equip the global leaders of tomorrow’s business. We are here to coach, mentor and support these people. We believe in a job well done, and our success is reflected in seeing these leaders take on the Agile Transformations and making it their own. We are here to provide them with the right tools to be successful and give a little push into the right direction”.
