Consulting Approach to Problem Solving

Do you feel that you already know all possible frameworks of business problem solving (Porter's five forces, the BCG-matrix etc.), yet you are still not confident in using them? Or maybe you already took a course on management consulting problem solving approach, but the jargon used didn't make much practical sense to you (The 80/20 rule, MECE etc.)? Whether you're a student studying for case interviews or a businessperson, what you might be lacking is a comprehensive aproach to problem solving that generates consistent results.

If so, this course is for you. I can guarantee you will not find another such comprehensive introductory course on hypothesis-based problem solving - the top consulting firms' technique of choice on all kinds of business consulting engagements.

They will build on the knowledge from this course in order to develop further the topics covered here.

real life

Would be good to illustrate uses in real life management consulting case studies.

I will certainly sign up for Piotr Gawlicki's more advanced courses on approaches, tools and methodologies, and real life case studies.

After this course, I'm able to relate or apply what I learned to some of my real life problem solving encounters (work or non-work related).

Really real life driven approach.

I would suggest to add more real life examples for SMART problem solving in the course.

He does it in an understandable way, with real life and business world examples.

I wish it could cover more real life examples in financial industries too.

Only reason for not having 5 stars is that my method of learning is by following a real life example.

real world

I’d like more examples, of more complexity, to help me learn real world applicability.

The guy’s picture blocked crucial information on the PowerPoint it was amazing The videos are informative and realistic in understanding real world application of the theory, the information on the slide are difficult to concentrate on or focus past due to the positioning of the video as it prevents clear and visible display.

This course revealed and explained an important & new terms which are often used in any consultation organizations and made it easy to understand them by giving a real scenarios and examples The content has too little examples and is very vague in explaining real world application.

More real world examples would be appreciated.

Its an amazing course, it lets you recall the basics of strategy approach to problem which in real world at times are missed by even experienced consultants.

Paradigm shifting, thought provoking, and presented with clarity I am a management consultant since 2017 and learning more theoretical approach on our real world business cases is very crucial.
