      3. Make it your own – create content, modules and platform features specific to your company requirements, the industry you’re in and the team you’re part of.
  • How do you get the most out of the course?
    • By preserving a consistent business-wide approach to marketing, the Mini MBA provides a way to on board new team members and upskill established ones to ensure everyone has the same fundamental knowledge.
      • Study together – create internal teams to study and discuss the modules. Prepare questions on each module and ask Mark directly in the course live (you will be invited by the course training team to put forward a question to Mark to be answered within the interactive online Q&As).
      • Time it – diarise regular meetings within your group to collectively go through the videos. Discuss and challenge the learnings within a safe environment; place the learnings into your own business.
      • Build a leader board – praise your top learners and launch an internal competition on who is on track with the modules. A bit of healthy competition has never hurt anyone.
      • Monitor performance – receive regular reports on your team’s progress. Keep track of individual’s activity and module progression.
