    BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE: DATA ANALYSIS AND REPORTING TECHNIQUES

    Why Attend
    While business plans serve start-ups and businesses seeking investments and financing, they
    offer businesses an excellent approach to formalize business goals, and outline the
    operational and financial strategies to meeting those goals. Business plans are excellent tools
    for communicating new business ideas and initiatives, and getting different people to work
    together on setting out sales forecasts and growth strategies, and developing marketing and
    sales plans. In addition business plans provide valuable financial analysis and projections that
    can help in deciding the viability of new ideas and initiatives.
    Target Audience
    Department heads, senior manages, managers and supervisors, project managers, team
    leaders, sales managers, marketing managers, entrepreneurs and others who would like to
    develop their business ideas or initiatives.
    Target Competencies
    Creative thinking and business planning
    Collaboration and teamwork
    Market analysis, and identifying strengths
    and weaknesses
    Financial analysis, forecasting, and
    break-even analysis
    Resource scheduling and budgeting
    Communicating and presenting the
    business plan
    Course Methodology
    This course is highly interactive. From the outset participants find themselves engaged in
    identifying business initiatives or opportunities, within their company or on their own, and
    subsequently embark on developing the required business plan. This course operates more
    like a workshop where teams are formed, roles are defined and every member contributes to
    the formation of the business plan. Besides the business planning principles that participants
    obtain throughout the course, teams will be provided with necessary tools, including
    notebooks or tablets, to conduct research, market analysis, business analysis and scenarios,
    forecasting, and financial analysis. Teams will subsequently translate their efforts into a
    business action plan that they can share with participants, and their colleagues and superiors
    at work.
    Course Objectives
    By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
    Explain the critical importance of a well thoughtout business plan for the success of the
    organization
    Formulate vision and mission statements to support the business plan
    Describe effectively the business idea or initiative and how it caters to market needs
    Apply 'SWOT' and gap analysis to develop market situation analysis and identify relevant
    strengths and weaknesses
    Outline the most appropriate goals, objectives and strategies critical for the success of the
    business plan
    Describe the desired product or service in a compelling and convincing way
    Construct robust and relevant marketing and sales strategies that support the product's
    entry to market
    Forecast potential product or service performance and produce required financial
    projections
    Choose and implement tactics and courses designed to maximize operational success
    Develop a practical plan that will enable management to monitor and control the
    progress of the organization
