Our Story

getITright started in May 2009 as a specialist IT best-practice skills development company, helping customers develop individual and organizational skills and competencies using multiple methods. The mix included traditional classroom training, building and international training partner network, e-learning, offering to coach and consulting to complement what professionals learn, and helping them to apply what they have learned for the benefit of their organization.

The company stayed true to its original purpose. It expanded its offering to include non-IT, enterprise topics like Organisational Agility, Lean, Business Continuity, Privacy and Data-protection, Information Security, Governance, Innovation and design, and Digital Transformation.

We have also embraced technology as a delivery mechanism and often offer our services to customers without ever being in close physical proximity. We have learned that more technology does not make for a less personal touch and build a long-term sustainable relationship.

Our e-Learning platform is one of the tools getITright uses to achieve its purpose with the stated aim of helping individuals and companies, equally to (as our tagline states) learn, apply and accelerate.

getITright now operates as two independent entities supporting each other, with a shared purpose, One in Hengelo in the Netherlands and one in Johannesburg in South Africa.

We believe that the future is about networks and connections, not about structures and equity. The business of the future is a people business, with more heart and soul and emotion than mere dollars, euros, or rands.

We also believe the future is about connecting people at an intimate level, their experiences, ambitions, and lives. By doing that, we can build better organizations and a better society!

You may find that some of our offerings are ‘non-standard,’ the reason is quite simple – the first thing we ask is – what level of people-interaction is necessary to make this intervention a success?

Only once we understand that do we develop products and services!

We are just as passionate about making a difference today as we were more than ten years ago. The need has not changed, but the context has substantially, and we will continue to explore new and exciting ways of doing things consistently better and striving for perfection.

We are excited to have you join our community and help us make a difference with you!
