Multinational FMCG company Shoprite Checkers recently enrolled their team of seasoned business analyst’s on Business Change Academy’s Business Analysis Practice training course, to help gear up their senior business analyst team with the necessary tools and techniques for defining strategic requirements from business objectives.
The Business Analysis Practice course curriculum, which focuses on a holistic approach to the investigation and improvement of business situation with a view to developing effective, feasible business solutions, was ideally suited to the development needs of the delegates who attended.
“Our business analysts, especially those more senior, need to be able to assist business in formulating and aligning strategy to greater company objectives,” says Hendrina Groenewald, Knowledge & Development Lead.
The business analysis profession has evolved from being a requirements translator to an increasingly intuitive role that supports business in doing better business. To continually ensure that Shoprite’s Business Analysts add value to the organisation, they required training that delivered a contemporary learning approach on a level that would equip their business analysts with the techniques and skills needed in a challenging business environment.
Business Change Academy’s comprehensive training course teaches practical techniques which can be implemented and practiced in the workplace,” says Hendrina.
Business Change Academy does more than deliver typical training courses. Combining their industry insight and real-world experience they bring training to life, helping delegates grow their knowledge, skills and abilities to improve their application of business analysis.
According to Corrinne Brits, Lead Business Analyst at Shoprite Checkers,
“the training has provided me with new concepts and interactive techniques to engage business and project stakeholders better.”
Joe Newbert, MD and lecturer of Business Change Academy says that “the first step in meeting Shoprite’s training needs was understanding the vision that the Business Analysis Knowledge and Development team had within the greater workings of the organisation and the day-to-day challenges that Business Analysts were facing.“
Much of the success of the business analysis training was in aligning the learning objectives with the business objectives, to make the training more personally relevant.
