The formats in which you can get this course
Healthy side warning: this is for content people
Since it’s good for both of us to prevent disappointments, please note the following…
If this focus on content didn’t scare you, then go for it!
The lecturer – dr. Machiel Emmering
- I studied economics and business administration, then got a PhD – so I did all the tedious reading, selecting, and organizing of all the contents for you.
- I work as a business consultant, researcher, lecturer/trainer, and coach.
- I’ve done this for/with industries of various types (a.o. Sara Lee, Philips, ING, eBay, Heerema), startups & SME (many), government (The Bank of the Netherlands, several Ministries), the academic world (several universities), and art & charity (many).
- Meanwhile I’ve published 3 books and >100 articles (being fair about the latter: most on my own –other– site).
- People appreciate how I select, organize, improve, clarify, relate, and convey seemingly complex content (linkedin recommendations).
YOU’RE DIVING INTO
- 8 modules that cover ALL aspects of business. Strategy. Innovation. Organization. Management. Finance. Quality Improvement. Managing People. Leadership/Entrepreneurship.
- Logically related in a unique, much acclaimed grid.
- Basic version (slides only), or extended (video + workbook added)
YOU’RE GETTING OUT WITH
- 100’s of insights and improvement ideas.
- Seeing the bigger picture of ANY business.
- Being sharper with work, others, the market.
- Feeling the confidence of understanding it all.
- Having blind spots opened up.
Why would I pay anything at all, with so much free content out there?
- You’re getting “the whole story”. Free material on the internet is partial (and then you may think that only one model conveys “the whole truth” just because it tells you that it does).
- You’re getting it integrated and logically related within one framework. Free material on the internet is fragmented (and then you may wonder what e.g. Scrum and Lean have to do with each other, if anything at all).
- You’re getting many models simplified and/or adjusted such, that it becomes easier, more applicable, more sensible, and more pragmatic. Free material on the internet is prescriptive (if not dogmatic) and “truth-claiming” (and then you may feel doubt if you don’t see the point, whereas perhaps there is no point at that moment for you).
- You’re getting it all as reference material in one place. Free material on the internet is dispersed over many places and in various forms (and then you may have trouble finding it back if you want to read it again).
Is this another “success formula”?
How does this differ from a full business study, what is left out?
- Content that is overly detailed, or theoretical / abstract, or of not-so-general relevance. This is a huge saver.
- You don’t get exercises and skill training here. This e-course remains an individual home study. Application of the content is obviously critical as to make it valuable, but this part resides with you.
I've done a (bit of) business study, is this still interesting?
- It is a refresher of most of the content that you’ve seen there.
- It helps to re-focus on main items (you probably had to deal with many side items as well during that study).
- It integrates / relates all the content that you’ve seen there, so that it finally does not feel fragmented anymore. As many of the seasoned managers who followed the seminar have said: “finally I see my decades of experience coming together in one whole”.
