Management consultants are brutally efficient. They not only are taught to do their work fast, but also are very good in selecting the right issues. I know it from first-hand experience as I spent my first 5 years in this hostile environment of top consulting companies. Yes, we worked sometimes 10-15 hours a day; 6-7 days a week but we managed with a small team to do in 3 months what the whole company was not able to do in years. Management consultants’ efficiency stems from 3 things: good organization, efficiency in daily activities and extremely good skills in picking the right topics. I think that those skills are crucial and I will teach how to acquire them.
In this presentation I will show you how to do the right things fast and efficiently so you can enjoy fully your work and life (depending what are your priorities ;) . The presentation is based on my 11 years of experience as a consultant in top consulting companies and as a Board Member responsible for strategy, improvement and turn-arounds in biggest companies from FMCG, SMG, B2B sector that I worked for. On the basis of what you will find in this course I have trained over 100 business analysts and consultants who now are Investment Directors, Senior Analyst, Directors in Consulting Companies, Board Members etc.
I do not like to overcomplicate things so in every lecture I will be quite straightforward. In every lecture I described a different hack and I give examples how to use it, especially in services such as consulting. To every lecture you will find attached (in additional resources) many useful files: examples shown in the lecture, furthers suggestion, exercises etc.. If you don’t find something that you need let me know - I will try to prepare something and I will add to the presentation
In the presentation I use 6 main frameworks: 80/20 rule (Pareto Principle), lean manufacturing, theory of constraints, getting things done, critical chain method, lean startup
