Description

If you want to be a business owner or a corporate executive whose job involves business decisions, managing and leading a team, or organizing the human resources for a business, then you will certainly need to master three fundamental disciplines:

  • Management and Leadership

  • Marketing Strategy

  • Business Strategy

There is no way around that. It is possible to be an entrepreneur and a CEO with an engineering background and without an MBA or a business degree; what is not possible is being either of those things without having a clue about:

  • What makes for a good manager?

  • Which are the typical management positions in an organization?

  • What do they have in common? And what is the difference between their roles?

  • Planning, Controlling, Directing, Staffing, Organizing

  • Operations

  • Supply chain

  • Managing productivity

  • Value chain management

  • Setting Financial vs. Strategic vs. Operational Objectives

  • The objective pyramid and steps in goal setting

  • The difference between short-term goals and long-term goals and when they are appropriate

  • Environmental scanning

  • Forecasting and Budgeting

  • Break-even analysis

  • HR Planning

  • Recruitment and selection

  • Orientation and training

  • Motivating employees

  • Performance appraisals

  • Setting compensation and benefits schemes

  • Stress management

  • Career development and work-life balance

  • Team decision-making and behavior

These are interesting and important topics and you can’t expect to build a well-functioning business team if you have not studied them in detail.

This is precisely why this is an excellent course! Each of these concepts is explained in a clear and effective way and we touch on all topics with the necessary level of detail.

The course contains plenty of real-life examples, which makes it even more fun and easy to understand. In addition, we have prepared a ton of supplemental resources for you:  quiz questions with explanations, course notes, PDF files, and so on.

So, what are you waiting for?
