Analysis and Problem Solving for Consultants (CO20)

GK# 8964

Course Overview

As clients' problems become more complex, and the desire to implement solutions that not only meet needs but deliver true business value increases, technical consultants need to develop a more in-depth understanding of their clients in order to be successful. This shift combined with the fact that the solutions many organizations or internal support functions offer are also becoming broader and include more services means that technical consultants have to have business acumen and better problem solving and analysis skills.

This is an interactive workshop that helps both internal and external consultants build the skills and knowledge to better gather and analyze client information and make sense of it in order to make more effective recommendations.

Students pursuing a university-recognized and/or accredited certificate in Canada or continuing education units in the U.S. must attend at least 90% of class time, participate in class exercises and section-knowledge checks, and score at least 70% on an end-of-class, multiple-choice assessment.
