Case assessment paper
The training course is intended for managers at all levels in all lines of service, owners of small and medium-sized enterprises and those who intend to start their own businesses.
The programme is most suitable for professionals with min. 3-4 years of experience who wish to deepen their understanding of business processes and strategy and enhance their managerial skills.
PwC Mini MBA programme comprises nine related sessions designed to offer insight into successful business strategies in the modern world. In the course of these sessions, we will try to provide a systematic framework and clear structure of organisation management, which will help participants to apply the acquired knowledge in their own organisations.
PwC's Mini MBA uses a mapping technique to explain interconnectedness of different segments of an organization. Mapping an organization and analysing it through a sequence, plays a significant role in comprehending the logic behind organisations, their structures and processes.
The initial session introduces the proprietary business map that serves as a roadmap for the remainder of the course, keeping the participants focused on how each individual business segment fits into the big picture, while the closing session pulls all the pieces into a whole.
The final day of the training programme is dedicated to solidifying the knowledge gained over the course of the programme. Participants get to work in teams on a Harvard business case that will address all aspects of planning, developing and implementing a business strategy, utilizing our proprietary business analysis map.
This is an important differentiating aspect of our programme: by linking all modules effectively into a whole, we train participants to move away from silo thinking and get into the habit of thinking about their everyday tasks in the context of the “big picture”. This contributes to better cooperation between different units and helps the overall business run more smoothly.
