ED301-The Art of Problem Resolution


ED301, the final course in the EDFP Certification Program™ with a Business Credit Analysis emphasis (EDFP-BCA), integrates the quantitative business credit finance skills learned in the previous two courses (ED 101 and ED 201) with the qualitative or non-financial aspects of deal structuring. Participants apply a process for solving problems in order to overcome the myriad obstacles—economic, financial, political, social— to the successful structuring and restructuring of business finance projects. The emphasis of this course is casework. Participants are challenged by case studies that involve complex financial issues such as workouts, and business valuations and buyouts. Specific topics include:


  • Problem Solving
    • Elements of the problem-solving process both financial and non-financial
    • Devising a negotiation strategy
    • Consensus Building
    • Creating “win-win” solutions


  • Deal Structuring
    • Structuring and restructuring using conventional credit facilities


  • Work out and Buy-outs
    • Developing a workout plan
    • Business valuation methods
