My programs in English

I have some business skills training programs in English, such as “Business data analysis”, “Logical thinking for business problem-solving” etc.

I also have some class programs for undergraduate/graduate students at university.

Please find more details at the following link: http://data-story.net/english/

The skills you can learn in the programs are “fundamental”,  “practical(not purely academic) ” and “effective” in any type of business.

It is also possoble to customize the contents of the programs according to your requirements and conditions. (eg. 1 hour speech to one week intensive course)

 

Please feel free to ask any questions on my programs.

Business problem-solving exercise

It was a year-end class today at Yokohama National University in Japan.

In my class, “Business problem solving”, the international student groups tackled the following short exercise :

In the exercise, the groups switched the facilitator roles for each question so that they can learn how to facilitate small group discussion efficiently.

It was just a short case but they learned the problem-solving process and how to lead discussion to get a conclusion within the limited time.

 

We will keep this kind of exercises until the end of semester in Feb.

Assumption making for financial business planning at Yokohama National University

One of the final goals of the international students, studying at YCCS program of Yokohama National University is to make their own “feasible” business plan.

 

I have five classes in the program, where I teach:

  • Business problem solving
  • Financial business planning
  • Team facilitation
  • Logical thinking (for negotiation, communication etc.)
  • Business data analytics

 

One of the weakness of the students, who do not have any working experience, is the fact that they do not know how to know the “realistic” assumptions for making a business plan.

 

In this semester, I only focus on the techniques and knowledge about making reasonable assumptions.

This week, we will talk about “Goal-based” assumption.

This is one of the slides from the class:

I apply “active-learning” for all of my classes, where the students are actively participate in the discussion, assignments and group work.

We will discuss the topic and their own works assigned at the previous week.

Please let me know if you need further information for considering such practical business class at university.

Final exam of “business data analysis” class at Yokohama National University

This is an assignment of another class “Business data analysis” at Yokohama National University.

Students are required to develop their own story, supported with the analyzed data.

This is the key skill-set when you apply those analytical techniques to the practical business issues/proposals.

We have already experienced several similar exercises at the class and I am so excited that they will enjoy it and present interesting insights.

 

Good luck!

 

Please send me an email if you / your organization would like to try those lessons/lectures.

Business planning class at Yokohama National University

I saw great progress of my students to develop their own financial plan with business strategy.

It took only three months to achieve it, who did not know even what “Revenue” is in April.

Here is an example output of a student in the class.

 

The business case was “web site developer” where you need to develop a business plan to reach positive profit within a year.

Reasonable business strategy in line with the assumptions in the business model is also required in the presentation.

This is a fundamental and basic business skill where you will be required in any type of business in the world.

 

I would be happy to discuss a chance to conduct the class (even as an intensive program).

A good word to show the level of data aggregation.

My business statistics class started at Yokohama National Univerisy for the international students from all over the world.
Just to explain some basics for the new students, I was struggling to show the level of aggregation of data in my class.
This is a concept that you need to learn for managing data itself before studying some statsitics.
Today I found the word “granularity”.
I guess it is not that common word even for English speakers but it really fits the concept.

Business logics class at Yokohama National University

The semester has just finished at Yokohama National University.

  • Business logic and team consensus
  • Problems solving

 

Good job! See you somewhere in the world!

I would be happy to give my lecture(s) of “practical” business logic making (for communication, negotiation and presentation etc.) for your company, university and many kinds of organization.
