Case-Based Business Problem-Solving
What you'll learn
- You will learn about the Case Insights (CI) method, a structured analysis of case studies based on networked thinking.
- You will understand how to acquire problem-solving skills and experience by analysing authentic case studies.
- You will find out about tools and methods for structuring management and consultancy projects.
- You can use networked thinking in case study interviews where you are asked to examine a management problem, analyse it and offer advice on how to solve it.
- This course is an introduction to the subject and does not require any prior knowledge or experience. However, a basic understanding of business problems and some experience with case studies will make it easier for you to learn what I am presenting.
Expand your problem-solving skills with “Case Insights” (CI), a method of discovering knowledge through case studies and making it usable in problem-solving.
Do you have the feeling that you already know all the important approaches to solving problems in management but that you lack practical experience?
Then this course is just right for you! It is a unique introduction to the Case Insights (CI) method, a new way of analysing problems, solutions and cases that I have developed step-by-step over the course of my professional career.
In fact, every case study contains much more knowledge than we usually see at first glance. It is a treasure trove of problem-solving knowledge but it is often difficult to access, so it represents a hidden treasure, so to speak. The CI method helps you to discover and use these treasures.
This course is an introduction to case-based business problem-solving. An advanced course on the same topic will follow, providing a deeper explanation and broader application of the CI method. I look forward to welcoming you to this and other courses that I would like to publish soon.
But let's get to this course for now and familiarise ourselves with the CI approach, a method of case study analysis for discovering knowledge and making it usable in problem-solving.
Who this course is for:
- • Junior analysts and management consultants who are starting out in their consultancy career, as this course enables them to expand their repertoire of experience in problem-solving, even without being involved in projects.
- • Managers, project managers and project employees, i.e., specialists who solve complex problems in management: production management, sales management, personnel management, quality management, information and knowledge management, etc.
- • Students are also targeted, especially those on management programmes and those interested in learning a problem-solving technique for complex problems.
