About
Qualification Programs

Why do you need
a qualification?

You want an agile transformation but you want to remain framework-agnostic. You want your team members to embrace continuous innovation but you don’t like traditional certification. Above all, you want team members to enjoy themselves while learning at their own pace.

Shiftup aims for organizational change through continuous learning. We believe developing a learning habit is more effective than standard courses and certificates. We offer moderated content and activities (articles, videos, meetups, webinars, live talks, mentoring sessions, workshop exercises, etc.). We guide learners through qualification programs, and we offer various self-paced workshops. And we have pretty-looking diplomas!

We believe in qualification over certification. Certification is something we do with objects to ensure compliance with a norm or standard. But people are not standard objects! Qualification is something we do with people because it requires the validation of an ability to perform at a certain level of competence. To play among the best in an industry, you need to get qualified, not just certified.

Professionals are motivated by doing something that feels purposeful, making progress toward mastery, having the autonomy to create their own learning journeys, and contributing to / participating in communities. We trigger all these intrinsic motivators with our qualification programs and self-paced workshops.

By joining as a member, continuous learners have access to curated content and meetups, a community of many like-minded people, and a gamified, open, and crowdsourced learning environment. With diplomas. ๐Ÿ˜

The goal of qualification is not conformance to a norm or standard. (Thatโ€™s what certification programs are for.) A certified professional is someone who knows specific things. A qualified professional is someone with proven abilities to do certain things. Our motto is clear: โ€œGet Qualified, Not Certifiedโ€.
