Kurios is an online learning platform that is leading the change in Latin America by aiding modern businesses, big and small, with the help they’ll need to upskill their workforce.Gear up for the future with Kurios.
Kurios has identified four critical aspects that Latin American businesses should master to succeed in a highly competitive and digital landscape. These aspects comprise Digital Foundations, Data, Product, and Growth.
Before embarking on full digitalization, you have to first inculcate a digital mindset among your employees. Instilling such a mindset is not a one-and-done process. It takes time and effort, which is why you can start by enrolling your team in Kurios’ Digital Foundations program. In this program, your team learns about the benefits and importance of digital transformation as well as the methods and tools needed to enhance their productivity and other soft skills.
A workforce that appreciates data and how it impacts organizations is crucial to the well-being of a company, too. Studies have shown that a company that is driven by data potentially makes good decisions, practices strategic management, and addresses customers’ needs. Kurios’ Data program trains your team on how to integrate data into the process and analyze it using the latest tools and technologies.
Product development is another important factor, which can ascertain a company’s sustainability. Kurios’ program on Product explores strategies to incorporate UX research into the product ideation process, create a product strategy that works, and unbox Amazon’s famous Working Backwards methodology.
The Kurios platform takes the business marketing approach to the next level with its Growth program. Your team masters tried-and-tested concepts to secure leads, turn them into customers, and build loyalty to your brand. Through the program, they also develop skills to identify growth opportunities and create innovative solutions.
Read on as Alicorp’s Stefan Stern and Chazki’s Gonzalo Begazo share how these Kurios programs helped propel their business to success.
Propelling Businesses the Kurios Way
Alicorp, a Peru-based company, is an innovator and a notable figure in Latin America’s consumer goods industry. With over 60 years of experience in the region, the company can attest to the value of having a team of future-ready experts.
Stefan Stern, Alicorp’s Corporate Vice President for Supply Chain, says, “A company that does not grow, dies. [With this in mind] it is important to ensure that you do not get left behind and instead make necessary changes [in how you operate]. If not, you risk becoming irrelevant.”
As digitalization has swept across the region, the company needed to shake things up. Stefan took the chance to enroll his employees at Kurios. In a short period, he noticed a significant change in the company culture.
Kurios’ Product, Data, and Growth programs helped advance the Alicorp team’s skills and knowledge in the latest technology and business concepts that are instrumental in propelling the company forward. By the end of the program, everyone was more welcoming of new ideas.
Stefan explains, “Kurios has brought us relevant and fresh information that enabled us to adapt to our needs as a company. The hybrid methodology has been effective in our collaboration process. Kurios made itself for our collaborators, and they have always been available for our needs. Kurios has helped our transformation process, especially for a company anchored to traditional methodologies, which is not very easy to achieve.”
Since the company joined Kurios in 2018, over 450 employees have received intensive training that developed their core skillset.
Latin America is poised to catch up in the tech sector with the increasing number of tech startups. One of them is Chazki, a web and mobile platform developer that caters to businesses looking for better logistics and delivery experience.
Because of the growing competition, Chazki needed to invest in its people to advance from the startup phase. To do this, co-founder and CEO Gonzalo Begazo sought the services of Kurios.
Gonzalo explains that it takes a deep understanding of its customers to deliver the right products and services. After learning about Kurios’ Product program, he knew that it was the training his team needed.
The program is perfect for entrepreneurs, product managers, and UX designers wanting to expand their core skill set in ideating and creating solutions that meet consumer needs. The program establishes fundamental knowledge of its learners in digital product management, product management execution, and UX research, to name a few.
Through Kurios’ program, Chazki’s team has become more well-equipped and confident to tackle industry challenges head-on. Gonzalo says, “Without Kurios’ programs, I think we would have stopped understanding our clients. We would have been making strategies without a specific direction. Kurios allowed us to solidify our product management.”
He adds that Kurios is a must for startups looking to improve their people. The learning platform gives end-to-end support and industry-relevant curricula that can positively impact organizations.
“I am very proud of what we have achieved with Kurios. We realized how important it was for everyone in our company to undergo this training. It helped in aligning the organization.”
