The learning journey:
Innovative course for project managers.

About NIMO:

NIMO supports organisations and individuals in the development and professionalisation of project-based work, as well as project and program management.

Develop as a project manager

Within aNewSpring, NIMO has set up a learning journey ‘in-company project management course’ for a valued customer. The customer is a company engaged in activities in the field of real estate development, construction & technology and infrastructure.

In this learning journey, the student encounters four modules with activities in which they go through the ‘life cycle’ of a project and its development. The goal of the learning journey is to train the student to develop themselves even more as a project manager.

NIMO has managed to develop a learning journey that is innovative in this industry, well done!

Learning objectives and reflection

The design tools in aNewSpring gave NIMO the opportunity to develop this inspiring learning journey in the look & feel of its client. To begin with, the learner is asked to record a video to introduce themselves and set learning objectives.

Gradually, the student is asked to complete assignments and to reflect on these learning objectives and on the modules themselves. The trainer can also provide feedback on this. When all four modules have been completed, the student prepares a final presentation in Miro about how their learning journey went.

“In the future, we want to focus on the interaction between participants, giving 360-degree feedback and the use of webinars and online events.”
– NIMO: Simon Uithol, Manager Learning Academy

Future plans

On average, the students completed the learning journey with an 8! That’s a wonderful score. With this learning journey, a solid foundation has been laid for new customers who participate in a project management course.

Extensive use has been made of the possibilities in the platform. This entails a lot of motivation to make the learning journeys even more attractive and challenging for future and current participants. We are looking forward to next year…

“Online where possible, in person where necessary: with the learning platform of aNewSpring as a basis, we create an attractive learning journey that connects our training meetings on location and the interaction with the trainer and the student online. Our students have an overview of the learning journey they are following and the trainer has insight into the progress and can offer just-in-time guidance.”

Industry organisation Onboarding Blended learning

The food-processing sector not only faces difficulties in finding competent workers but also witnesses a high turnover in employees. Cérélia’s situation was no different, but they decided to tackle this challenge head-on.

In this case study, you’ll learn all about how exactly Cérélia went about it, and where TWI Company, AG5 and aNewSpring fit into that puzzle.

Kompas Safety Group made a rather startling discovery that one-third of the learners who enrol with them do not even start the course!

With aNewSpring, they managed to bring this percentage down to nine percent. But how? That’s what we’ll be looking into for this case study.
