Zinhle Ndlovu, a business analyst at Dimension Data, has four years of experience in the role. She says she had numerous ‘Aha!’ moments, especially around the business analyst’s core function.
“This programme has guided me in all areas, especially the elicitation of requirements. I’ve found this challenging in the past, and what I have learned at the Business Change Academy will now make this task much more straightforward in future.”
Her employer sent her on the fast-track, one-course-a-week diploma programme. Ndlovu says the biggest benefit is that all the learnings led to a renowned award. “I’m excited that I’ll be gaining a formal qualification, not just a certificate.”
Ndlovu adds that she relished the Business Change Academy experience: “Joe is an awesome trainer. He made the material fun, easy to follow and practical.”
Dijon Helmey, a business analyst with IoT.nxt, says the training was “a great way to solidify my business analysis knowledge”, and she enjoyed the structure of the course. “I loved the flow and how each section contributes to the next. It was a great way to understand how it all comes together and the examples used; super helpful!”
Jonathan Green, a business analyst at Tenacity Financial Services, was impressed by the live instructor-led virtual training. “The remote learning experience was seamless. I was very impressed with the preparation put in by the team and the complete lack of technical issues. I cannot recommend the Business Change Academy highly enough.”
Business Change Academy’s Chief Training Officer MD, Joe Newbert, says: “We’re excited to see our delegates graduate with this prestigious diploma. It’s a testament to their commitment and effort that they’re achieving the high-standards this accolade commands. We are fortunate to attract some of the smartest business analysts onto our programme. And these comments are typical of how delegates have been able to apply the course learnings in their work.”
