About the journey

Over the last few years, we have seen an increasing demand for skilled analysts.

While learning resources are abundantly available for analysts, it's hard to see the forest for the trees and to build and maintain their knowledge. They may be the only analyst within the IT department or are part of a very small group of experts.

As a result, knowledge sharing is difficult, they don’t feel challenged in their day-to-day work and they are not exposed to new insights in their domain. 

AE’s Boost your analysis skills aims to support those who are or those who strive to become analysts through a combination of Training, Workshops, Hybrid Learning, Community and Coaching, divided into 8 learning modules.
