It typically starts on a Wednesday at 8:30 am and finishes on the following Friday after the final group presentation. This module is designed in such a way that no sessions should be missed. Therefore, all attendees should arrive at the time specified and stay through the entire program.
M2 Business consulting 14 BUSINESS PLANNING FOR ENTREPRENEURIAL GROWTH: A STRATEGIC PLANNING TOOLKIT FOR SMES This inter-disciplinary module aims to enhance students ’ awareness, understanding and learning about the “ corporate odyssey ” of the prolific entrepreneurial enterprise (ranging from smaller owner- managed companies to large publicly quoted companies, including family dynasties). The primary purpose of the Business Planning for Growth is to offer a strategic planning toolkit that will enable the charting of survival, growth strategies in the context of succession planning framework. Through learning-by-doing, the course involves project work where participants will undertake interviews – empirical audit of a growing companies in order to report on the strategic development plan of the venture encapsulating amongst other : growth patterns, barriers to growth, innovation practices, evolving financial structures and ownership regimes, niche marketing tactics, management renewals and entrepreneurially inspired business strategy.
M2 Business consulting 15 FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT FOR CONSULTING Financial management and consulting often go hand in hand. The main purpose of this module is to introduce the principles, models, methods and techniques that equip students with the necessary financial management concepts required for consultants including funding routes, rules for obtaining and working with capital and company valuation tools. It also provides to students with the opportunities to hone their knowledge in business/financial/spreadsheet modelling. This is very important because it broadens the portfolio of skills of the students that enable them to take on a greater variety of consulting engagements in their later career.
M2 Business consulting 16 BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION AND INNOVATION Nowadays, change is not an option. It is the only option. The economic context, society are generating new challenges which require any organisation, profit or non-profit making, to be able first to understand what changes are happening and then to act in order to use this change as an opportunity rather than a threat. This course focuses on providing participants the necessary background to understand how to detect changes happening in the economy as well as to develop skills and methodologies to transform those threats into valuable opportunities. Companies today are indeed confronted with an increasing array of choices of markets, value adding activities, complex competitive environments and business models. In such a context this course will highlight the many aspects of Business Transformation and Innovation faced by all companies, and provides frameworks for formulating strategies and coping with continuous business transformation.
M2 Business consulting 17 PROJECT MANAGEMENT Project management is the process by which projects are defined, planned, monitored, controlled and delivered such that the agreed benefits are realised. Projects are unique, transient endeavours undertaken to achieve a desired outcome. Projects bring about change and project management is recognised as the most efficient way of managing such change (APM Body of Knowledge 5th Edition 2006) Project management standards and practices can be found in all business sectors and industries (e.g. oil and gas, construction, transportation, utilities, manufacturing, financial services, pharmaceuticals, media, aerospace, and telecommunications) and all disciplines (i.e. engineering, information technology, marketing, human resources, and product development).
M2 Marketing and Creativity Management 18 Integrated Marketing Communications Digital Marketing and Social Media Understanding the marketplace Product and Sales Management
M2 Marketing and Creativity Management 19 INTEGRATED MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS The increasing profusion of communication channels through which to interact with consumers has made the marketer’s job more interesting and challenging. Understanding how to effectively manage the elements that together create brand value in an integrated way is therefore an important skill for any manager to develop. Marketing managers will be directly responsible for managing the integrated strategy. For strategy professionals, integrated marketing constitutes an important element to support the firm’s overall strategy and must be treated as such. In-depth familiarity with integrated marketing is therefore a key aspect of almost any managerial position.
M2 Marketing and Creativity Management 20 Digital Marketing & Social Media The module is built around the different stages of the purchase funnel to enable participants to evaluate where each online tool can be the most effective, and how to combine different tools for best results. Some time is devoted to a detailed review and best practice analysis of each of the elements of the online toolkit, including search engine optimization, paid search, marketing and social media. The setting of objectives and performance metrics is discussed as well as tracking and measurement techniques. The specific creative considerations of online marketing are thoroughly discussed. Case studies and current examples are used extensively to allow participants to develop an intuitive understanding of the unprecedented opportunities available to creative online marketers. Some of the teaching will be done by industry experts who will present the most up-to-date tactics used in their fields (e.g., SEO, analytics, social media)
M2 Marketing and Creativity Management 21 Value Creation through Product and Sales Management To develop and seamlessly integrate into marketing planning the key aspects of successful product management such as product and market knowledge, financial, strategic and creative skills To operate cross-functionally in order to merge marketing with production, operations, IT, finance and sales To understand the day-to-day, operational product management process. To build effective Marketing Plans The second short part of the course moves on to explain the nature, importance and effective function of sales. Teaching and practical sessions are centred on the methodology of SPIN Selling, developed by British research psychologist Neal Rackham. At the heart of the system is a precisely defined sequence of four question types that enables the salesperson to move the conversation logically: From exploring the customers' needs To designing solutions (that a salesperson can resolve) creating value for both the customer and the seller.
22 Understanding the marketplace This course aims at equipping students with a critical mind-set, in addition to a toolbox of methods, which can be used to undertake and evaluate the outcome of research resources. Students will be challenged to develop a mindset that consider market research not just as a ‘one-off’ tool, but as a permanent discipline necessary to relate knowledge from the marketplace to the practice of marketing. The importance and necessity of creativity in making the most of market research will be highlighted. Upon successfully completing the course, students should be able to understand marketplace dynamics, collect & evaluate information, and adapt marketing strategies accordingly.
