MBA (Part-Time)

Regent Business School

Currently in final year of my MBA.



Currently working on a project to develop a next-generation student learning management system, focusing on students who are ill-prepared for University learning. Based on over 7 years of consulting with Universities, we have insight into some of the challenges that the current generation of learning management systems are unable to provide.

Our system will align each student's learning profile with a programme delivery model that will accelerate learning.


The Viability of Academic Programmes needs to be assessed beyond pure accounting profit. In order to understand viability, a University needs to understand and optimise student enrolment per programme with existing capacity and other key constraints. I am currently leading a team that is conducting a comprehensive viability study, we believe it will set the benchmark for how sustainable academic programmes should be structured.


Academic staff cost to revenue at many Universities, particularly those that are historically black continues to show a worrying trend. A more troubling trend is that the real picture on academic staff workloads (time spent lecturing, tutorials, labs, research, community development, developing learning content, etc.) is not always fully understood. We are currently working on a project to develop an innovative approach to assist administrators and Council to match teaching capacity with strategic enrolment.


Enrolment Planning is key to aligning planned student enrolment with staffing and educational outcomes. This is not always done in a strategic manner. I worked with the Planner, HEMIS officer and DVC Academic to develop the previous Enrolment Plan for the University.


Worked as the Project Lead for an Automated Performance Management System for the Botswana Investment and Trade Corporation in Gaborone. The project was designed to allow the newly formed organisation provide reports for the parent Ministries.


The City of Tshwane (Pretoria) was looking for a way to define the Terms of Reference for a new system to automate the operations of the numerous clinics and pharmacies it operates. I lead a team to conduct focus groups with the key stakeholders (administrators, Doctors, Nurses, Pharmacists and support staff) to identify the key requirements of each stakeholder for the system. The result was a Requirements Document that was used to issue the tender. We further assisted the City in developing the evaluation criteria for gauging level of supplier compliance to system specifications.


Balanced Scorecard Implementation

Almost every company has a business plan or strategy. What they do not always have is a way to monitor progress on their strategy and communicate in simple terms to their staff. I have worked over ten years in implementing Balanced Scorecards for organizations. With our technology-based system, we have implemented action-oriented performance management systems. I have lead teams from conception through to handover.

Requirements Modeling

Requirements are written statements of needs. Requirements management is the procedure used to make sure that a product meets the needs of the user. In information technology, the value of a well specified requirements document cannot be overstated. I have experience in developing specification documents for use by software developers and even procurement officials. In supply chain, the requirements document is translated into a technical specification document.

Business Process Management

Business Processes describe how work is done in organizations. Depending on whether this is required for a business audience or technical audience for automation projects, different notations are used as standard. I have experience with using different process modeling notations including IDEF0, BPMN, CATALYST, UML 1.x and Workflow modeling. Further, using Business Process Management approaches, I have developed standard operating procedures for a University Quality Management system.

Business Planning

I have experience in writing business plans for businesses. I am proficient in both types of business plans; internal management plans and funding proposal type business plans

Project Management

I have managed many projects for our clients. I have implemented projects for clients using the Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK). Our projects range from once off technical point solutions to large scale turnkey solutions for our clients.   I am presently studying for PMP certification.

Web Design

I have designed websites for clients for various applications. I have experience with propriatary and open source web development tools. As we move to a new age of information management, i believe this skill will be more important. Organizations are turning more and more to the web for   Recently, i begun experimenting with the next generation of small business intranets. I believe this sector of the economy will drive the next big swing in information management.

Dr Elfreda Oosthuizen / City of Tshwane

We delivered a project on behalf of the City of Tshwane. The city needed to procure a major ERP for the health services, but the requirements were with business people and doctors who were not technical people. Our brief was to bridge this. We developed the functional requirements and technical evaluation criteria for their supply chain. The project was a success
