Meet Phillip Mlotshwa | Foundation in Business Analysis Delegate

Phillip Mlotshwa Foundation in Business Analysis Delegate

Phillip Mlotshwa is a Business Analyst at Saratoga and a recent delegate on our Foundation in Business Analysis course.

Phillip found the flexibility and conversation around the various Foundation in Business Analysis topics great, and that formalising the end-to-end business analysis process was a good AHA! moment for him as it solidified his knowledge and skills.

Here’s what Phillip had to say about his training experience:

Tell us a bit about yourself, Phillip.

I’m a Business Analyst at Saratoga, with 3 years work experience – 2 of which is in business analysis.

Why did you choose to take the foundation in business analysis course?

I choose the course to test and enhance my own understanding of what it means to be a business analyst, and to learn new skills that would further enable my work.

How will the course help you in your career?

It has definitely solidified my knowledge, and has given me structure and techniques that enhance my existing skills and knowledge.

What was your biggest learning – did you have an AHA! Moment?

Formalising the entire end-to-end business analysis process was a good AHA! moment – it really brought the function of the broad role together for me.

What did you enjoy most about the BCMG training experience?

The flexibility and conversation around each topic was great.

And whilst the Lindt chocolates, salted nuts and Bos ice tea were delicious – maybe even better (and more) mid-course snacks would be good!

What would you tell someone who is considering doing this course?

That it will provide them with certification, and formalise exactly what they need to know as a business analyst.

In the spirit of ‘keep growing’, what would you like to learn next?

I’m keen to do another business analyst course towards the International Diploma in Business Analysis – and I’m going to decide which one to do next.

Phillip took the steps to formalise his business analyst understanding and has enhanced his skills. Are you ready to gear up? Download the Foundation in Business Analysis course brochure now.

Meet Lana Woollgar | Requirements Engineering Delegate

Lana Woollgar Requirements Engineering Delegate

Lana Woollgar is a Business Analyst at The Foschini Group and a recent delegate on our Requirements Engineering course.

Lana thought that the Requirements Engineering course brought some very useful concepts together for her, and that she was able to gain a much better understanding of when to use a range of elicitation techniques and know how to apply them in various scenarios.

Here’s what Lana had to say about her training experience:

Tell us a bit about yourself, Lana.

For the past 10 years I’ve been working in the business analyst role at The Foschini Group, whom I’ve been employed with for the past 15 years.

Why did you choose to take the requirements engineering course?

This is my fourth and final qualifying module for the International Diploma in Business Analysis. Almost there!

How will the course help you in your career?

Fundamentally, I’ve gained a much greater understanding of the suitability of a range of elicitation techniques — not only when to uses them, but also how to apply them in the various scenarios.

What was your biggest learning – did you have an AHA! Moment?

Learning the many ways to make the requirements document a whole lot better.

What did you enjoy most about the BCMG training experience?

Again, the class participation. I especially enjoy hearing and discussing the experiences and perspectives from the other members of the group.

What would you tell someone who is considering doing this course?

This course will bring many very useful concepts together for you.

In the spirit of ‘keep growing’, what would you like to learn next?

This is my last qualifying module towards the International Diploma in Business Analysis. But, that said, I do have my eye on Benefits Management and Business Acceptance as I’ve not covered the whole business analyst spectrum!
