The increasing demand for business analysts in recent years has brought about the need for a proper articulation of the Business Analyst’s role. Despite the growth of the business analysis field, and its value, academic research on the practices, competencies and capabilities of a business analyst is still limited. Drawing on the Resource-Based View of the firm theory and the concept of practice, this study proposes a business analysis capability model. A positivist qualitative research methodology has been conducted using a directed content-based analysis approach. This research analysed 300 business analyst online job advertisements in order to identify the practices, competencies and capabilities of business analysts as perceived by employers based in South Africa (SA) and the United Kingdom (UK). The findings suggest that, both in SA and the UK, analysts with systems skills, practices, competencies and capabilities are preferred by employers over those with business skills. The results of the study suggest that South African employers demand additional skills, practices and competencies from a business analyst than are required by employers based in the UK. This suggests that SA based business analysts are capable of competing for employment in the UK without the need for them to acquire additional skills. This research makes conceptual contributions to academia, and also offers managerial contributions to practice.

The objective of this exploratory research is to develop an understanding of those areas of specialisation or competencies required by the marketing divisions of South African corporations. The study further seeks to explore the types of marketing activities organisations prefer to outsource to other specialised firms such as advertising agencies. The study draws from the need to develop an understanding of how organisations remain competent in the highly competitive market driven by globalisation and technological advancement where consumers are disposed to a myriad of products. The research methodology was two-pronged: (1) literature review drawn from both domestic and international literature which provided an insight of how marketing divisions operate and skills required for the marketing profession, albeit lack of consensus. (2) The case study focused on a single pharmaceutical company (referred to as The Group in this study) which provided an insight on how companies diversified their marketing strategies. Twenty five respondents participated in the study, all of whom are employees of The Group. About ten (10) respondents are current brand managers and 15, are former brand managers (employed by The Group). The respondents answered to a questionnaire which sought to understand key competencies in the three areas of focus: marketing strategy, marketing initiative, and marketing implementation. This research established that marketing implementation was key area which organisations were most likely to outsource. Lessons from this case study which is limited to understanding the outsourcing aspect will provide an insight to South African companies and organisations about areas that are best suited for outsourcing. The limitation of the study leaves room for future research by recommending that research should be directed towards understanding reasons for outsourcing those specific services. / Dissertation (MBA)--University of Pretoria, 2010. / Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) / unrestricted

Student Number : 8607167P - MSc research report - School of Education - Faculty of Science / This small-scale case study researches the importance of analysing the mathematics competencies assessed by a selection of tasks developed for a portfolio in Grade 9 during 2003. The tasks are analysed according to the cognitive demand placed on the learners, plus their open-ended versus closed nature. This research reveals that the weaker ability learners experience a greater apparent benefit, compared to the stronger ability mathematics learners. Although there are other mathematical competencies assessed in this research report, those of ‘thinking and reasoning mathematically’ and ‘representing and explaining mathematical entities’ are most problematic, compared to the more traditional competencies of ‘memorisation’ and ‘manipulation of mathematical symbols and formalisms’. Assessing the tasks from the perspective of mathematical competencies, may serve to provide an alternative framework for analysing the appropriateness or not of tasks used in the development of portfolios and thus improve the practises of mathematics teachers in general.
