In this one-week practical course, we will imagine that you are a consultant. Your client will be a large European bank who is realizing that they are facing a new generation of customers who have been raised for a very different world – one that is very different from the one that your client is used to navigating in. They are struggling with what meaningful services they can offer in the future to attract, support, and retain this new generation of customers. Your role will be to help solve this puzzle for them.
During this process, we will guide you through how to use social sciences to explore this case. We will deal with explorative methodologies that are deeply rooted in the ethnographic toolkit of anthropology and other social sciences. You will learn how to dissect and reframe business problems, identify the right research methodologies, recognize patterns across large datasets and develop deep, meaningful insights. The course will culminate in translating insights into impactful business recommendations and strategic advice.
This practical course will challenge your critical thinking, provide you with a cutting-edge toolkit to develop strategy in any setting. We will be simplifying the complex human ideas and complicating the seemingly simple behaviours – we will be sensemaking.
This course will take place from 1-5 November 2021.
