Batlhalefi Holdings recognises that Information Communication Technology is a fundamental driver for global economies. This is especially true for businesses that wish to be ahead of the game when it comes to ensuring competitive advantage and sustained growth. Forrester predicts that by 2020 the explosion of business-ready, self-service technologies and the growing influence of a tech-savvy, self-sufficient workforce will reshape Information and Communication Technology products and services within organisations.

Our products and services incorporate international best-practice open standard methodologies, modelling languages, customised tools and templates (packaged for deployment within specific product lifecycle phases within organisations by small teams of professionals without the need for large support contracts or expensive training engagements). We also provide training, tools and services in partnership with academic and private institutions to professionals within the information security domain across Africa.


Business Architecture (SimplifyBX product)

Even though most business and ICT leaders agree that effective management and exploitation of information can make a difference in their organisations there is no substantial amounts of money available in most medium sized organisations to tackle the complex architectural issues of today. We understand the challenges facing these organisations and developed a unique approach; combining training, mentoring and software into a single product deployable within an organisation of any size that is mindful of the following limitations:

  • Individuals have multiple roles in the organisation.
  • Limited availability of professionals with architecture, process or analysis skills.
  • Limited resources in the organisation available for administrative product support.
  • Limited budget for expensive modelling or analysis tools.
  • Limited budget for specialist consulting engagements.

Our integrated approach in addressing these issues is called Simplify BX (Simplify your Business Systems); and consists of a program of integrated Business Architecture training and mentoring, supported by the Open Source Archi Modelling tool.

We follow a flipped classroom approach that draws on such concepts as active learning, delegate engagement, hybrid course design, and course podcasting. The value of a flipped class is in the repurposing of class time into a workshop where delegates can enquire about lecture content, test their skills in applying knowledge, and interact with one another in hands-on activities. During class sessions, instructors function as coaches or advisors, encouraging delegates in individual inquiry and collaborative effort.

Integrated Skills Plan Development & Online Facilitation

Although businesses have generic ICT organisational role descriptions they do require very specific skills from their personnel. This differs between organisations making it very difficult to implement a generic solution into organisations.

We assist organisations with Assessment & Foundational Training to identify and select candidates that will need to participate in the training and on-boarding them into the engagement by providing foundational training.

This is followed by Capability Enablement Training that is geared towards helping the candidates in their environment and can consist of in context tool training and proof-of-concept project guidance that demonstrate how working together is creating a sustainable work environment

Lastly, we have coaching that is focused on supporting the group as they now apply their new found skills and knowledge within a live environment. The coach will act as a sounding board and will provide support and clarification as required during the project. The real value of this approach is realised when the theoretical training on specific industry best-practices are integrated into the organisations own methodologies.

A Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) forms a core part of our offering. A VLE is a set of online tools and resources that facilitate various aspects of the online education experience, including communication, assessments, and information and document sharing.

The VLE contains a standardised training layout with templates for the creation of custom training modules based on organisational specific methods. Our VLE provide support for skills development engagements in organisations to enable skills development to a Proficient level on the Dreyfus model by combining appropriate level of training and coaching from our consulting services. Through our network of specialists and academics we can offer organisations a range of ICT skills development services.
