Description

What is the aim of this course?

To build a business you need a good idea that you can explore and develop. Unfortunately, coming up with a good business idea is not easy. Most firms and universities don’t show how to come up with business ideas. They concentrate on teaching you how to run existing businesses. Luckily, there are a lot of proven methods to find interesting business ideas. If you are a Management Consultant you can use them during consulting projects to help your customers grow their business. If you are a manager or startup founder they will prove priceless in your quest to discover new business opportunities. In this course, I will show you different methods to come up with killer business ideas. In the course you will learn the following things:

  1. How to come up with business ideas by improving existing products, solving existing problems
  2. When specific methods of business idea generation can be applied
  3. How specific business method should be applied
  4. How to find ways to 10x existing solutions
  5. How to innovate your product and your business model
  6. How to build an add-on business using your current business

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. We have helped scale up a lot of firms by not only improving their performance but also finding new business ideas, creating a growth strategy for them, and mapping potential opportunities in which they could 10x their businesses. 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 75 000 students including people working in EY, Walmart, Booz Allen Hamilton, Alvarez & Marsal, PwC, Dell, Walgreens, Orange Citigroup, Cisco, IBM, 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 a lot of lectures, 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 I have decided to create this course?

Most firms and universities don’t show how to come up with business ideas. They concentrate on teaching you how to run existing businesses. However, coming up with new business ideas is required if you want to grow the business. At some point, the small improvements and organic growth will not suffice. New business ideas not only help you grow the business but also help you make it more durable and sustainable. New business ideas will help you come up with new ways to change your business model and adjust to new trends.

This course will help you become an expert in business idea generation. This skill will prove very useful not only in consulting but also later on when you become a 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 business ide generation. Thanks to this course, you will know what and how to do it during strategic consulting projects devoted to creating new businesses. We want to provide you with frameworks that will open your eyes to new opportunities.

To sum it up, the course will help you become an expert in business idea generation on the level of McKinsey, BCG, Bain, PwC, Deloitte, EY, and other top consulting firms. That is why, I highly recommend this course to Managers, Management Consultants as well as Investment Directors working for PE, Directors, owners / founders of businesses.

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 with which you generate new business ideas. 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:

  1. How to come up with business ideas by improving existing products, solving existing problems
  2. When specific methods of business idea generation can be applied
  3. How specific business method should be applied
  4. How to find ways to 10x existing solutions
  5. How to build an add-on business using your current business
