Pencil - Course Essentials
Learn the Experience Framework
Build upon Essence of Experience


A 3 day course, the XLA Foundation introduces best practices for embracing XLAs (Experience Level Agreements) and transforming into an employee-focused organisation.  You will learn how to embed the Experience framework and articulate the value of an experience-based culture.

Engage with skilled and expert instructors to learn the Art & Science of Experience and how XLAs are changing the way we design and manage technology.

Learn the Experience Framework

Envision experience by seeing the patterns, possibilities, and pathways forward to the experience.

Enable Experience through deep business intelligence to measure & interpret experience ambitions and gaps.

Execute experience to deliver, improve and innovate the experience ambition and reduce gaps.

Embrace experience to deliver, ensure and improve the experience for stakeholders and influencers.

Build Upon Essence of Experience

Learners take a QuickStart Assessment to understand the current baseline, which we reference as we guide you through each phase of the Experience Framework.

The hands-on activities not only allow you to understand the necessary steps within each phase of the framework (Envision, Enable, Execute & Embrace) but also to identify the next steps in your journey.
