The workshop began with the discussion on importance of case solving in the practical life of an engineer and how it shapes their professionalism and sharpens their situation assessment, information handling and last but not the least delivering something creative. The workshop got even more interesting when came the Q&A session. Participants got to know more about case solving and its challenges to be faced as they dived deep into the session.
Later that night, the participants were briefed by the organizer about the business case they had to solve within 48 hours. The list of top 9 teams for the intra final was out on 30th March, Friday. The journey was quite hectic, but not to mention that it was a blessed one as well for it was not very easy to get selected out of 117 teams.
On that day, BUTEX Business Club, the organizer of the event, arranged a special grooming session, to be participated by the selected teams, conducted by last year’s TexBiz finalists Shaiyan Chowdhury (Trainee Merchandiser, H&M) and Tanvir Anik (Trainee Merchandiser, Ha-Meem Group).
