[Udemy 100% Free]-Commercial Due Diligence for Management Consultants




Description

What is the aim of this course?

One of the projects you will participate during your work in management consulting is the Due Diligence Project. They usually are part either of Merger and Acquisition (M&A) attempts of big firms or are generated by Private Equity (PE) and Venture Capital (VC) funds that are looking for opportunities to invest in new businesses. Those projects are very intensive, short and will enable you to learn in-depth the industries and companies you will be analyzing. There are also very difficult as you have to understand very fast the challenges in a specific industry, the competitive landscape and to evaluate how much is the target business worth. Management Consultants and Business Analysts are usually responsible only for a part of the Due Diligence called the Commercial Due Diligence. In this course I will show you how to deliver such projects fast and efficiently.

In the course you will learn the following things:
How to prepare for the project to make your customer and your team happy as well to finish the project much earlier than your competitors
How to create value for your customer (Private Equity, Strategic Investors, VC, etc.)
How to deliver the project within the budget and way ahead of deadlines
Which research methods to use
How to structure and create a presentation summarizing Commercial Due Diligence
How to talk with the potential investors

The course is based on my 14 years of experience as a consultant in top consulting companies and as a Board Member responsible for strategy, performance improvement and turn-arounds in biggest companies from Retail, FMCG, SMG, B2B and services sector that I worked for. I have carried over 40 different Commercial Due Diligence for PE, VC, strategic investors and have participated in supervision of acquired companies.  On the basis of what you will find in this course I have trained over 100 consultants, business analysts and managers who now are Partners in PE and VC funds, Investment Directors and Business Analysts in PE and VC, Operational  Directors, COO, CRO, CEO, Directors in Consulting Companies, Board Members etc.

I teach through cases, so you will have a lot of lectures showing examples of analyses, tools and end-products of Commercial Due Diligence. To make the course more realistic and applicable we will go over a Commercial Due Diligence for a company from the retail sector.  To every lecture you will find attached  (in additional resources) the Excels as well as additional presentations, materials shown in the lecture so as a part of this course you will also get a library of ready-made analyses that can, with certain modification, be applied by you in your work.

Why I decided to create this course?
Commercial Due Diligence is one of the most demanding type of projects as you have to in short time understand the industry and the target company as well as to provide to the customer (PE, VC, strategic investor) some guidance on whether the firm should be bought or not. Those type of project can build your career and provide you with nice flow of interesting projects or can tarnish your relationship with you customer. By giving you exposure to real life cases and analyses I want to improve your skills in researching and analyzing potential target firms during a Commercial Due Diligence project.  Thanks to this course, you will know what and how to do during a Due Diligence Project to deliver ahead of deadlines high quality products.

To sum it up, the course will help you become an expert in Commercial Due Diligence Projects. That is why, I highly recommend this course not only to Consultants or Business Analysts that have to advice their customer but also to Investment Directors working for PE, VS as well as owners, founders of businesses that consider selling their business at some stage.

In what way will you benefit from this course?
The course is a practical, step by step guide loaded with tones of analyses, tricks, hints that will significantly improve the speed with which you understand, analyze the business considered for acquisition. There is little theory – mainly examples, a lot of tips from my own experience as well as other notable examples worth mentioning.

Our intention is that thanks to the course you will learn:
How to prepare for the project to make your customer and your team happy as well to finish the project much earlier than your competitors

How to create value for your customer

How to deliver the project within the budget and way ahead of deadlines

Which research methods to use

How a presentation summarizing Commercial Due Diligence should look like

How to talk with the potential investors (PE, strategic investors etc.)

You can also ask me any question either through the discussion field or by messaging me directly.
