Value creation through work-integrated learning is phenomenal. It transfers the main learning experience from the ivory tower to our students' workplace. This creates unprecedented meaning. It releases skills training from being taught theoretically to the most valuable experience that happens on-the-job.

Also, work-integration shifts the traditional study focus from analysis to implementation. It is implementation that changes the world. This new dispensation allows students to experience that they are able to change their worlds at work.

Enjoy screening incredible feedback about real value creation that some students agreed to share publicly.

This assignment has created a lot of value. Though I am familiar with most of the subject it was exciting for me to align what I am currently doing with what the course is saying and looking at the issues that may hinder my recommendations.

The assignment also gave me an indication of the key project deliverables that have to be put in place and how the project should be managed. Key to mention is how to structure meetings so that team members are continuously reminded of the ultimate goal even without telling them. And also, the aspect of rotating charring meetings in order to give ownership to every member involved.

This has been the most interesting assignment to date. A very brief look at only one department was carried out, and immediately a major issue has been highlighted, one that if addressed, will see the department contributing significantly more going forward.

Over the next month, each department will be analysed in the same fashion, and I would not be surprised to find similar deviations from expectation.

The assignment was an interesting one. Going into the accounts in more detail than normal has revealed that we need to act now in order to prevent issues arising down the line.

I have had interesting discussions with our accountant as a result of this course and will be changing the items that he reports on going forward to bring some of the items, such as key ratios used by potential creditors, under the spotlight. With him specifically reporting on these items, and the various managers made aware of their involvement and contributions to these ratios, for example, in the inventory ordering process, leading to excessive and obsolete stock, I think we are far better placed to financially streamline the business.
