Xior: building a digitally innovative organization

The challenge

Build a scalable digital organization to establish a trustful long-term relationship with students and partners.

Our role

To fuel Xior’s long-term digital approach, we first performed a Zero Measurement scan based on 6 pillars: team, technology, data, organization, innovation, and governance. This led to a practical plan with new roles and responsibilities, new clear KPI’s, and a total new way of working to build a digitally innovative organization. All of which was powered by our d.Academy workshops on mastering end-to-end customer experiences to improve the team’s knowledge of all the touch points between Xior and its clients and to become more consumer centric. In addition, Digipolitans helped to co-create the vision and wireframes for the new Xior website.
