Description

The course is designed to turn you into efficient and fast business consultant

If you are a business and management consultant you probably have already noticed that it is very important to be efficient during projects, especially if you must work 10-15 hours a day, 7 days a week. I know exactly the pain as I was consultant myself for 17 years and I had the pleasure to train consultants at top consulting firms (more than 100 consultants). Many of them are now at Directors level at FMCG and SMCG companies, private equity funds and consulting companies. This course will show you how to successfully and conduct fast a performance improvement or turnaround project of the logistics and supply chain operation of the company. The principles presented here can be implemented in any consulting projects, 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 daily in logistics and provides a framework how to optimize their operations. Course is perfect also for business analyst 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 advantage at the interviews.

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
