Bursary Programme - 2018 - Next chapter of our student’s journey
The bursary recipients in the pilot programme are now ready for the exams. It has been a path of learning, growth and making a difference in the community. We are looking forward to seeing the difference that these individuals will make in their respective companies and their communities at large.
Our bursary recipients
Then: Business Analysis for Neo was completely misunderstood. She has been involved in analysis of some sort, but only to a level of checking and fixing, not really understanding the problem and never getting to the detail, enough to provide a meaningful solution. She always questioned whether the methodology was understood and to what extent it was actually applied.
Then: Duka’s tried validating his skills and techniques against something he did not quite understand but had been exposed to. For him it was about how to apply what he has learnt over time.
Then: Robyn has been involved with Business Administration, dwelling in the shadow of BAs and coming to realise that it is time to come out of the shadows.
Then: Zandile did not have any background in BA, it was a jump into the unknown. In the environment she currently finds herself, it has just always been a ‘go with the flow’, do what is prescribed, not really questioning why things are done the way they are. This is mostly due to a lack of understanding as to what business analysis is really all about, meaning you analysing the business. Start with the problem not the solution.
Then: Ada has been exposed to the methods and principles but could never determine when what is to be applied. There was this uncertainty of not knowing what you know, what tools are applied and how to measure the expectation amongst resources. There was a lack of clarity on what the tools are.
