What is the aim of this course?
One of the projects you will participate during your work in management consulting is the Performance Improvement Project. You will be hired by the owner or the Board of Directors to improve the business. Those projects are extremely interesting because you will be able to make a real change, create a new reality and improve part of the business or even the whole business. There are also very difficult as you have to not only analyze areas but also find ways to improve the current situation as well as, on some occasions, implement the change. The skills that you will learn during this sort of projects will be also very useful once you move to work for regular businesses or set-up your own firm. In this course I will show you how to deliver such projects fast and efficiently. In the course you will learn the following things:
This course is based on my 14 years of experience as a consultant in top consulting firms and as a Board Member responsible for strategy, performance improvement and turn-arounds in 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 40 000 students.
I teach through cases, so you will have a lot of lectures showing examples of analyses, tools and end-products of Performance Improvement Projects. To make the course more realistic and applicable we will go over a simplified overall case for performance improvement as well as through a number of typical analyses from Retail and FMCG. I will also show you the frameworks you should use during Performance Improvement Projects to conduct this sort of projects fast and efficiently. To every lecture you will find attached (in additional resources) the Excels as well as additional presentations, materials 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?
Performance Improvement Projects differ greatly from other consulting projects. You have to not only analyze and come up with bright ideas but you quite often also have to implement them. Many Business Analysts and Management Consultants lack the frameworks as well as the fluency in analyzing the right thing fast to deliver the results the customers expects. This course will help you become an expert in the field of performance improvement which will be extremely useful not only in consulting but also later on when you become director or you move on to build your own business. By giving you exposure to real life cases and analyses I want to improve your skills in analyzing the right things fast and implementing the improvements that you have identified. Thanks to this course, you will know what and how to do during a Performance Improvement Project to deliver ahead of deadlines high quality products.
To sum it up, the course will help you become an expert in Performance Improvement on level of McKinsey, BCG, Bain, PwC, Deloitte, EY and other top consulting firms. That is why, I highly recommend this course not only to Consultants or Business Analysts that have to advice their customer but also to Investment Directors working for PE, Directors as well as owners / founders of businesses that need better to improve their profitability and prepare for scaling.
