• Understand the algorithm for finding and selecting a solution for business automation

• Explore the advantages and disadvantages of various automation solutions

• Learn how to determine your need for automation

• Understand the principles of business process analysis

• Help navigate the diversity of modern solutions for marketing, sales, HR, finance, project management, management, accounting

• Learn how to plan and manage changes

• Together with trainers, consider a practical example of marketing automation

The course is focused on the needs of SMEs, and automation solutions available in Belarus will be considered as examples. The course is interactive and includes practical exercises and real examples of automation.
