What is the aim of this course?
This course will help you drastically improve your knowledge of management consulting techniques, tools, and frameworks. It is designed for people who want to become management consultants, business analysts or are dealing with performance improvements as well as strategic projects in their firms. In the course you will learn 3 things:
What consulting techniques, tools, and frameworks there are
When to apply each and one of them
How to use them in practice including examples of how to calculate specific things in Excel
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 110 000 students including people working in EY, McKinsey, Walmart, Booz Allen Hamilton, Adidas, Naspers, Alvarez & Marsal, PwC, Dell, Walgreens, Orange, and many others.
I teach through case studies, so you will have a lot of lectures showing examples of analyses, tools that we use. To every lecture, you will find attached (in additional resources) the Excels as well as additional presentations, materials shown in the lectures so as a part of this course you will also get a library of ready-made analyses that can, with certain modification, be applied by you or your team in your work.
Why have I decided to create this course?
Management consulting has been very creative and has produced or popularized the application of many tools, techniques, and frameworks that can be used to improve any business. By putting them in one course and explaining them using real-life examples, I wanted to make this knowledge available to students that are considering joining Management Consulting firms as well as managers that simply need to expand their toolbox with a few useful tools.
Things you will find in this course will improve your awareness and skills in analyzing problems that you will be facing in business as well as in private life. Thanks to this course, you will know what tool, technique, or framework to use and how to use it in practice.
To sum it up, I believe that if you want to build or to find improvements in any business you should master techniques presented in this course. That is why, I highly recommend this course not only to consultants or business analysts that have to advise their customers but also to owners, founders of businesses as well as managers and directors.
In what way will you benefit from this course?
The course is a practical, step-by-step guide loaded with tones of analyses, tricks, hints that will significantly improve the speed and efficiency of your business. There is little theory – mainly examples, a lot of tips from my own experience as well as other notable examples worth mentioning. Our intention is that thanks to the course you will learn:
What management consulting tools, techniques, and frameworks are available
How to understand business using management consulting tools, techniques, and frameworks
How to apply in practice those techniques, tools, and frameworks to optimize the business and take strategic decisions
You can also ask me any question either through the discussion field or by messaging me directly.
How the course is organized?
