I suggest that there's a big difference between starting a Microsoft and growing with it, as opposed to being inexperienced, unqualified and being placed in the position of running a Microsoft?
Agreed, but he must have spent some time learning .Agreed.
I'm simply saying paper qualifications aren't enough. Neither should their lack be a disqualification. One of the most able top managers at SAA, for example, has no paper qualifications. But he has a superb business brain, understands the airline business, and possesses exceptional management skills.
That's actually pretty impressive. Hats off to him for the hard work it takes to swot and sit those exams. Hats back on again for being a professional politician in the Zumacrat camp.This is a very misleading article. A quick search presents Van Rooyens qualifications as:
"The University of London conferred a MSc Finance (Economic Policy) to Mr Van Rooyen on 30 July 2014. He recently acquired a certificate in Investment analysis and Portfolio management from UNISA." He also has:
A Business Management Diploma
- A Diploma in Municipal Governance
- A certificate in Municipal Governance
- A certificate in Councillor Development
- A certificate in Municipal Finance
- A certificate in Economic & Public Finance and
- A Masters Degree in Public Development and Management.
Regardless of his competence as a minister, the purpose of the article was to state the qualifications and it failed to do so. Gordhans wiki page also states he has a pharmacy degree.
The wording implies that his major qualification was given and not earned.That's actually pretty impressive. Hats off to him for the hard work it takes to swot and sit those exams. Hats back on again for being a professional politician in the Zumacrat camp.
what are you talking about descent chance ? 22 years the economy has been in a steady decline, how long of a chance do you need, 50 years ?It's such a pity people didn't give Des a chance to fix it all.
