This course is based on my 15 years of experience as a consultant in top consulting firms and as a Board Member responsible for strategy, performance improvement, and turn-arounds in the biggest firms from Retail, FMCG, SMG, B2B, and services sectors that I worked for. I have carried or supervised over 90 different performance improvement projects in different industries that generated in total 2 billion of additional EBITDA. On the basis of what you will find in this course, I have trained in person over 100 consultants, business analysts, and managers who now are Partners in PE and VC funds, Investment Directors and Business Analysts in PE and VC, Operational Directors, COO, CRO, CEO, Directors in Consulting Companies, Board Members, etc. On top of that my courses on Udemy were already taken by more than 124 000 students including people working in EY, Walmart, Booz Allen Hamilton, Adidas, Naspers, Alvarez & Marsal, PwC, Dell, Walgreens, Orange, and many others.
I teach through cases, so for every shortcut, I will show you how to apply it. At the end of every lecture, there will be a short overview of shortcuts covered. I am using Excel under Windows / PC (non-Mac) but in the overview, I will also show the shortcuts for the Mac / Apple version of Excel. If you are already working in Management Consulting this course will give you an advantage over your colleagues and will help you get promoted faster to a Project Manager position.
Why have I decided to create this course?
The speed of analysis is critical in order to survive the first 1-3 years in Management Consulting and thrive. This cannot be achieved if you do not master Excel as it will be one of the two main tools with which you will work. In most likelihood, you will spend more time with Excel than with your girlfriend or boyfriend. An important part of proficiency in Excel, doing the analysis fast is using Excel shortcuts.
There are plenty of Excel shortcuts that you can use. In this course, I will show you the essential ones that will help you 2-5x your speed of analysis in Excel. I will also show you how to look for other useful shortcuts.
Thanks to this course, you will be doing the analysis much faster. This will give you time to learn new things, progress faster at work, deliver ahead of deadlines and have a normal life outside the workplace.
