Talent Herds

2 year recruit, train, deploy academy designed by industry leaders
We build skills & CoNFIDENCE, not just knowledge

Growing your talent pipeline of BAs & Product folk

Talent Herd is our 2-year ‘recruit-train-and-deploy’ academy that develops your future business analyst and product manager talent. We do the hiring, people management, and most importantly provide a ‘learning-by-doing’ academy, designed by industry leaders. Our Talent Herds are different to norm, they’re centred around highly-experienced practitioner-coaches, embedded full-time as part of the cohort on the client side; helping the trainees effectively put learning into practice whilst building confidence and skills.

Yes, it’s possible to split cohorts over 2 organisations. Get in touch and we can discuss in more detail. Main thing to consider is that the academy needs to start on the same date for both organisations.

Unfortunately not, each academy is designed around the specific profession. Whilst some elements maybe similar or the same (e.g. Storytelling), most of it differs.
