This course should be of particular interest to people aspiring a career in designing and managing business processes, either directly (V.P. of Ops, COO) or indirectly (e.g. management consulting). The course should also be of interest to people who manage interfaces between operations and other business functions such as finance, marketing, managerial accounting and human resources. Finally, a working knowledge of operations, which typically employs the greatest number of employees and requires the largest investment in assets, is indispensable for general managers and entrepreneurs.

A process view of operations will be used to analyze different key operational dimensions such as capacity management, flow time management, supply chain management, and quality management. We will also discuss developments such as lean operations, just-in-time operations, and time-based competition.

How to Hire a Virtual Assistant

A first-timer's guide to hiring a VA. Free up your time, save your sanity, and focus on what's most important.

Created by Nick Loper - Entrepreneur, Author, Chief Side Hustler at SideHustleNation

"]

Students: 20528, Price: Free

This course will guide you through the process of hiring your first virtual assistant, starting with how to determine what tasks you can outsource, where to post your job, how to narrow down the applicants, and ultimately making the hiring decision.

Why Hire a Virtual Assistant?

In short, to save yourself time, money, and headache.

As a small business owner, your most precious resource is your time. After all, each minute you spend is a minute you'll never see again. A virtual assistant is an investment in reclaiming that time so you can spend your time more wisely.

You'll start by identifying your outsourcing opportunities, the tasks that someone else can and should be doing for you. After all, you need to be working ON your business, rather than IN it.

The Course Structure

The course is broken up into 8 video PowerPoint segments that follow a trusted process I have used to much success in my own business. You'll be able to get through the modules quite quickly, but there is some homework involved, including:

  • Tracking how you're currently spending your time
  • Finding which tasks you can get off your plate
  • Crafting and posting an attention-getting job description
  • Narrowing down your applicant pool
  • Testing and interviewing the most promising candidates

If you're finding yourself overwhelmed or burned out with your work, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. It just takes a short investment in time to learn the basics of hiring a VA, and some additional time to train them on your process, but the long-term benefits are huge.

This course is more geared toward hiring a virtual team member for ongoing business support, rather than for a one-off project; though much of the content will be applicable to both scenarios.

The Deliverables:

By the end of the course you'll have the confidence and skills to go out into the wild and hire your first virtual assistant.

Prepare for a new era of business growth and productivity!

Quick Decision Making: Best Practices of Fortune 500 Firms

Master the best practices for quick decision making scenarios in Fortune 500 firms taught by globally-renowned expert

Created by Dr. Gleb Tsipursky, PhD - Globally-Renowned Thought Leader and Behavioral Scientist

"]

Students: 523, Price: Free

Your quick decision making skills will determine whether you thrive in our increasingly-disrupted future.

Yet traditional advice to "go with your gut" in quick decision making so often leads to disasters, as revealed by research in behavioral economics, psychology, and cognitive neuroscience. So how do the leaders of Fortune 500 companies make the right calls on even the toughest decisions when they have to do so quickly?

They recognize that behavioral science has revealed that our typical approach to decision making suffers from systematic dangerous judgment errors called cognitive biases. These mental blindspots often lead us into disasters. Fortunately, recent scholarship has revealed effective yet counterintuitive strategies to enable you to defeat these cognitive biases. In this course, you will learn about and address these dangerous judgment errors, while mastering techniques for quick decision making drawing on cutting-edge behavioral science and real-world best practices from Fortune 500 companies.

Perhaps the easiest and quickest technique takes less than 5 minutes. It involves asking 5 key questions about a given decision that will enable you to maximize the likelihood of making a “good enough” quick decision and implementing it well. After all, Fortune 500 leaders have to make numerous decisions quickly every day on matters where it’s sufficient to make a “good enough” decision and not worth the time and efforts to make the best possible choice.

After taking this course, you will:

· Master the best practices for quick decision making used by Fortune 500 companies to seize competitive advantage

· Feel truly confident about whether you made the right call in your quick decisions

· Free yourself of constant ruminations, numerous grey zones, and mental blindspots that plague typical quick decision making

· Discover the dangerous judgment errors - cognitive biases - that lead to quick decision making disasters and how Fortune 500 firms overcome them using science

· Develop a plan with specific next steps to adapt for yourself the quick decision making methods used by Fortune 500 companies

Sounds too good to be true? These methods were successfully used by Aflac, Applied Materials, Entergy, Honda, IBM, Reckitt, Wells Fargo, and Xerox to dramatically improve the skills of their top executives, senior VPs, middle managers, and lower-level supervisors in quick decision making. Over the last two decades, I trained the leaders at these Fortune 500 companies, as well as at numerous middle-market companies and quickly-growing startups as the CEO of the boutique future-proofing consultancy Disaster Avoidance Experts. The secrets used by these companies will be revealed in this course.

Here’s a recent testimonial from John Elnitsky, the head of the nuclear division of Entergy, a company ranked #299 by Fortune, speaking about the impact of my training on the leaders of the nuclear industry:

· “We at Entergy hired Dr. Gleb as the opening keynote speaker to set the tone for the annual nuclear utility industry conference, hoping he would give a wake-up call about the threats and risks facing us and what steps we can take to prepare. Well, what he delivered exceeded our expectations. His keynote was the talk of the conference, widely described by attendees as giving the nuclear industry ‘the kick in the pants we needed to jump-start critically important initiatives to address the threats he outlined.’ Thank you Dr. Gleb!”

Here’s a recent testimonial from Harish Phadke, the Business Manager for the head of the North American Health division at Reckitt, a company ranked #326 by Fortune, about the impact of my training on the Reckitt North American Health Leadership Team:

· “Dr. Gleb Tsipursky provided a truly outstanding virtual training on unconscious bias and future-proofing via emotional and social intelligence for the Reckitt North American Health Leadership Team. Exceeding our expectations, Dr Gleb customized his groundbreaking, behavioral science-driven training content to integrate our initiatives, policies, and case studies at Reckitt, expertly targeting our evolving needs. We are delighted to have met Dr. Gleb, and look forward to future opportunities to keep working with him on a training series for the organization. I highly recommend him for anyone who wants to get a rapid grasp of highly relevant topics which influence human behavior in the prevailing challenging times.”

Besides such real-world, pragmatic expertise, I have a strong academic background as a behavioral scientist studying decision making and related fields. I spent 8 years at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, first getting a PhD in the History of Behavioral Science and then serving as a lecturer there. Then, I spent 7 years as a professor at the Ohio State University, where I published dozens of peer-reviewed articles in high-quality academic journals such as Behavior and Social Issues and Journal of Social and Political Psychology. Thus, this course is thoroughly informed by cutting-edge research.

Students: 437, Price: Free

Our approach in this course is unique, we believe in OPERATIONAL OUTSOURCING MANAGEMENT: this will enable you to organize your remote team (small or big) efficiently to boost your business, yet stay safe. To achieve this goal personal consultation is also part of this course.

I am Zsófia of Myprocesses and I help busy entrepreneurs like you to automate and outsource their time-consuming tasks without sacrificing their profit. If you are looking to make the 4-hour work week a reality, or simply avoid burnout, then I have a lot to tell you.

In this course you will learn:

  • What are the benefits for YOU in outsourcing?

  • How YOU can make a wise outsourcing decision?

  • Pick up the tasks YOU can outsource

  • What are the risks in outsourcing?

  • How to manage risk?

  • How to reduce the cost of outsourcing?

This course is for you if:

  • You are running a business that already generates some cash and you could use some extra hand to grow further

  • You are seeking for answers relevant to you, and not just general information. (Personal consultation is also part of this course)

  • You are worried about the possible risk of hiring a virtual team (safety issues, overspending quality concerns etc.)

  • You want results quickly, efficiently, without spending too much time on  training and hiring

I truly believe entrepreneurs should not be the employees of their company. Burnout is a real problem for business owners, but with carefully set processes (SOPs) and efficient outsourcing they can avoid such break down, or they can even achieve the dream of 4-hour work week.

If you are here you wish to expand your business without risking burnout. I have good news for you: you did not only enroll for an online course but joint a supporting system: enjoy a personal consultation to make sure you can put what you have learnt in practice, and build up your online team by working together with your personal Outsourcing Manager.

As an operational outsourcing manager, I map out processes to spot tasks for automation and outsourcing, and I also handle the whole process with backup solutions and training as well to make outsourcing safe and affordable.

If you seek for such a safe and affordable outsourcing decision that is tailor-made for your business and your situation, this course is for you.
