The course is designed to turn you into an efficient and fast business consultant
If you are a business/management consultant you probably have already noticed that it is very important to be efficient during projects, especially if you have to work 10-15 hours a day, 7 days a week. I know exactly the pain as I have been a consultant myself for 15 years and I had the pleasure to train consultants at top consulting firms (more than 100 consultants). Many of them are now at the directors level at FMCG / SMCG companies, private equity funds, and consulting companies.
This course will show you how to successfully conduct fast a performance improvement or turnaround project of the logistics/supply chain operation of the company. The principles presented here can be actually implemented in any consulting project, especially supply chain and production projects, but we wanted to concentrate on one topic to show you from simple to complicated analysis how you should approach the subject.
The course is also very useful for people involved on a daily basis in logistics and provides a framework on how to optimize their operations. The course is perfect also for business analysts outside the management consulting fields who want to significantly improve their skills. We recommend taking it also for people applying to consulting companies - it will give an advantage at the interviews.
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.
This course is a practical guide.
There is little theory and we concentrate on showing you in practice how to analyze, present problems and solutions and how to draw the right conclusions from the data. During the course, you will get to understand how to approach the project to maximize effects in the shortest possible time. You will also learn, through real-life case studies, how to analyze fast in Excel logistics and to draw insightful conclusions
As attachments to the course, you will get the Excel files along with the solution so you can practice on your own analyzing the data. You can also use the files for future projects.
Please, follow instructions so that you maximize the learning experience from the course – first try to do it on your own, then go to a partial solution and try to finish it on your own. Only after you try the latter one you should go to the final solution and check the Excel with the final solution.
After the completion of this training you will:
Be able to handle supply chain-related analysis in Excel with easiness
Be very efficient during the project deliver great results and be able to sleep
