About the Course

This is the #3 course in the specialization on management consulting. Management consultants excel at solving difficult and complex business problems. How do they do this? Shouldn’t clients know more about their situation than external consultants? Consultants are trained to systematically break down problems into logical pieces, then aggressively pursue answers with data: • Think about the problem broadly; strategy, operations, people, technology • Define the problem clearly; articulate “what does success look like?” • Break the problem into “buckets” so it is easy to understand • Use hypotheses to “guess” your way to the potential answer(s) • Find and clean up messy data; convert the data into useful recommendations...

As a "red airplane" :) it is perfect to see how to get the benefit from the experiences that we had after many years. Clear messages for all kind of audiences, it was really nice to have.

One great thing about this specialization (now halfway through) is that the instructor is clearly a great educator, both intelligent on the subject matter and enthusiastic about sharing knowledge and his experience. The only time the wind was taken out of my sails while learning this material was the final peer-reviewed assignment was inconsistently nit-picked compared to quizzes in the modules. This cannot take away from the enjoyment I had learning these skills in the previous 99% of the course (part 3).

It is a good course for students who want to start their careers in the field of consulting. The course gives you an idea about how consultants work in the marketplace and how they approach towards any problem statement.

Although I'm twice the age of most of his students and completed my doctorate long ago, I found Professor Kim's presentation and frameworks to be very helpful. I took extensive notes, and will be applying some of his teachings to my own professional work. I very much recommend the entire Management Consulting Specialization for people from different fields who are looking for fresh approaches to business development and management, especially this course and Consulting Presentations & Storytelling .
