Interesting, isn’t it, how we consider all businesses to be different? Different industry, different product, different sector, different size, … Yet they all aim to make a profit.

Are they really different, then? Actually, no! Business fundamentals are just that – fundamental to business, of any kind.

In Module 3, we look at those fundamentals. We discuss business structure – what roles there are within a business, when a sale is actually a sale, why price shouldn’t be your profit determinator, what item listed as an asset in your Balance Sheet is actually a cost, where to find the money hidden in your Balance Sheet, budgeting / forecasting, business planning, and more.

You know how common sense isn’t that common? Well, in a similar way, the magic we discuss in this course is not really magic – because the magic wand is called “work”. But is it work focused on the right areas, done the right way. And the successful results attained make it seem like, well, magic!

Module 4 is designed to take your business to the next level, and beyond. We look at the leverage points of the business, follow the full profit trail, and look at what can be done at each leverage point to increase the flow of cash (as distinct from profit) through the business. Once you Know the leverage points it is much easier to plan (yes, plan) the How of increasing the flow.

Along the way we look at data that should be collected, but often isn’t. We look at improving customer retention, different projects you can implement, and a whole lot more. Once again there are lots of reading recommendations.

Needless to say, if you implement even just an idea or two, you could get your money back on this course several times over!

Who Is The Target Audience?

We want everybody to do it! Seriously! The course is designed for:

  • Students (high school and above, if not earlier)
  • People in the workforce, and
  • People wanting to get (back) into the workforce.

Why These Modules?

The majority of people end up working (for money) within an organisation for which numbers / performance are important. For most people, this employer is a business, maybe even one they own themselves! Yet, in spite of this, schools do not teach anything about business. So, most people end up not knowing what a business should look like, how it should work, or what functions are necessary within a business, let alone how to grow a business.

These Modules, which follow on from earlier Modules, is a start in changing this. It’s a start in making people more valuable to the organisation they work for, more able to manage that organisation, and more able to help strengthen it and deliver better results.

How Does It Work

How Long Will This Take?

It depends how hard out you want to go. But we envisage you should be able to get through each Module in around ten hours total.

How is the Course Structured?

The Modules includes a number of KnowHow papers, with accompanying Quizzes. You then move on to Examples, followed by parallel Exercises. We cover the essential components of a business, what business structure is, and the six areas a business plan must cover – Marketing, Operations, Human Resources, Technology, Financing and Innovation. Then we move on to the four ways to grow a business, the various strategies necessary to grow a business, business levers and what to do with them.

"I never really understood the why behind many of my tasks. While working through this program in preparation for my daughter, I was able to gain a better understanding of the why behind how I do things, such as; balance sheets, fixed assets and depreciation. With this new understanding, I am able to do my job much more efficiently. This in turn makes me a more valuable asset to my company."
