Course summary

What is the aim of this course?

Strategy is one of the most dreaded subject in any businesses. There are so many conflicting frameworks that is difficult to decide what to choose. In this course you will learn a framework that will help you formulate and execute the strategy for your businesses on the level of top consulting firms i.e. McKinsey, BCG, Bain, PwC, EY. You will also see how others are implementing their strategic choices.

This course will help you drastically improve your knowledge and skills in creating as well as executing a strategy  for your business (or your customers’ businesses). It is designed for people who want to become management consultants, business analysts or work on creating and implementing the strategy inside the business. In the course you will learn 3 main things:

  1. What strategic choices do you have and how to choose the optimal one?
  2. How to calculate the impact of chosen strategy or tactic?
  3. How to implement the strategy and how others are doing it?

The course is based on my 14 years of experience as a consultant in top consulting firms and as a Board Member responsible for strategy, improvement and turn-arounds in biggest companies from Retail, FMCG, SMG, B2B sectors that I worked for. On many occasions I had to not only formulate the strategy but also make sure that it is implemented.  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 CEOs, Board Members , Operational  Directors, COO, Investment Directors, Directors in Consulting Firms, etc. On top of that my courses on Udemy were already taken by more than 29 000 students.

I teach through cases so most of the lectures are case studies showing some business problems solved in Excel. In this way you get a lot of practical insight how to calculate the impact of strategic changes or how to decide which strategic option is useful. This skills will come handy during consulting projects. To every lecture you will find attached  (in additional resources) the Excels shown in the lecture 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 in your work.

Why I decided to create this course?

Most consultants and business analysts are a bit lost during strategic projects. On one hand, you have a business you don’t quite understand as it is new to you. On the other hand, you have a multitude of frameworks that are conflicting with each other and quite often not practical enough. To make matters worse the customer – the business you are working for has problems with understanding what you are trying to convey with your thick presentations and thousands of Excels

Therefore, I have gathered all my experience into one framework that is easy to follow not only for you but also your customer. I believe in the power of data. That is why, I will show you also how to prove, using hard data and  calculation in Excel, that certain strategic choice is good or bad.  In order to make certain strategies easier to understand I have also added plenty of examples of businesses using specific strategy.

To sum it up, I believe that if you want to find a way to grow a business you have to become an expert in formulating and executing a proper strategy for this business.  This course has all the materials you need to become one. That is why, I highly recommend this course not only to consultants or business analyst that have to advice their customer but also to owners, founders  of businesses as well as board members.

In what way will you benefit from this course?

The course is a practical, step by step guide loaded with tones of examples, analyses, tricks, hints that will significantly improve the speed with which you formulate a strategy. 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 know:

  1. What strategic choices do you have and how to choose the optimal one?
  2. How to calculate the impact of chosen strategy or tactic?
  3. How to implement the strategy and how others are doing it?
  4. What are consequences of a specific strategic choice for your business?

You can also ask me any question either through the discussion field or by messaging me directly.
