Powerful framework-models for critical business issues

These classes expand on the principles from our Core course (see here) to tackle the most important issues facing your enterprise - see free preview lessons listed below

How building quality resources is as important as quantity - better customers, smarter staff, more appealing products.

How resources develop through stages - capturing customers, promoting staff, developing products.

Figuring out how to beat competition.

Designing reliable policies to ensure the best-balanced decisions.

Modelling how intangible factors impact performance - and how to manage them.

Building strong organisational capabilities to transform performance.

Each framework-model is a powerful tool on its own - just how will you fight off that aggressive new competitor, for example? But each also can also add to the power and realism of wider business-models.

As with our Core classes, follow our demonstrations to build these powerful models yourself. Then use them as templates to model important challenges facing your organisation.

See the free preview lessons of the Extensions course for more on the course content and how it works.
