You'll learn to apply analytical tools and frameworks in the context of 5 real-life business case studies. This case-based method is inspired from top business schools.

WEEK 1:

Excel is a critical tool for anyone working on the business side of a company. You'll work through a set of Excel exercises from a real-world business case. 

Learn about the range of features that Excel has to offer to help you solve business cases.

Topics covered:

  • Data-entry, formulas and formatting
  • Charts and basic visualization
  • NPV vs. IRR
  • Excel

 

WEEK 3:

Learn how to create systematic models to forecast business performance, showcasing all your assumptions and testing various scenarios

 

Topics covered:

  • Problem structuring
  • Thinking about assumptions and sensitivity
  • Scenario analysis
  • Excel (Sensitivity Analysis)

WEEK 5:

Figure out how many and which customers will be retained by a business, and which customers might leave.

 

How do you identify high-value customers, predict which customers may drop off, and better understand customer spending patterns? Understanding these factors can improve customer retention, which in turn can substantially improve the bottom line.

Topics covered

  • Concepts such as LTV, churn rate
  • Cohort analysis
  • Excel

WEEK 7:

Identify the most relevant groups among a business' customers

 

Customer segmentation is the practice of dividing a customer base into groups of individuals that are similar in specific ways relevant to marketing, such as age, gender, interests and spending habits. Here are some valuable things you can do with segmentation analysis: 

  • Identify the most and least profitable customers
  • Better focus marketing efforts
  • Improve customer service
  • Build loyal relationships
  • Price products differently
  • Create personas
  • Customize features

Topics covered:

  • Tableau (data import, wrangling, exploration)
  • Excel (pivot tables, joins, cross-tabbing)
  • Cluster analysis (Elective in R)

Systematically identify the root cause of a fault or problem in a business

 

Have you ever encountered a business problem that you have not yet been able to solve? Or if you did find a solution it was only temporary because you did not solve the cause of the problem but rather the surface of the problem. The purpose of root cause analysis is to strike at the root of a problem by finding and resolving its root causes.

Topics covered:

  • Excel (data wrangling, lookups, pivot tables)
  • The 5 whys framework
  • Fishbone/Ishikawa diagrams

Understand customer behavior at different steps of a flow, and how to optimize the flow to increase conversions and sales

 

A funnel analysis measures the ‘effectiveness’ of your platform by enabling you to measure the fraction of users who drop out at each stage of the funnel: any drop off is taken to be a fault of the platform that needs to be rectified.

Topics covered:

  • Different cases of funnel analysis e.g. clickstream, campaign optimization
  • Hypothesis-driven thinking
  • Experiment design, A/B testing
  • Basic statistical concepts
  • Tableau, SQL
