Last active: 2 days ago
My objective is to provide business owners with high level of expertise that a part time Business Analyst and Consultant can deliver for a reasonable price and to help business owners make right and profitable business decisions.
I deliver total quality output to customers using my education, my real business working experience, and the experience gained with past projects. Experience allows me to be creative and to apply the acquired skills on the spectrum of projects, ranging from data research to comprehensive business analytical and consulting projects.
"Quality is not an act, it is a habit."
Why it will be the right decision to award me your project?
First, I have outstanding analytical skills. My analytical skills honed during gaining my degree in Physics and then while working as a scientific researcher for several years. Second, I love to work and I know how to work with data. I have strong knowledge in business mathematics and in mathematics in whole and I successfully apply this knowledge to business processes. Third, I have developed business intuition that allows me to see and predict the situation on the markets, in particular industry, or in given company. This ability is backed by a decade of working as a business leader in various fields, along with my degrees in Management and International Business.
These abilities multiplied by my perfect skills in researching for information allow me to ensure the successful completion of any awarded job and then to present the output in a format that is easily and quickly understandable.
My services include five main activities:
1. Business Research & Analysis.
Here I suggest basic (in the form of short overview) or comprehensive (in the form of solid report) research and analysis of markets and industries, both young and mature; research and analysis of countries as a whole and their parts: states, territories, and regions; competitors research & analysis; business forecasting; research for potential distributors, wholesalers, dealers; research for manufacturers and producers. I use various research techniques (web research, databases research, networking, direct contacting, and others) and I am confident in PEST, SWOT, Porter’s, BCG’s and similar methods of business analysis.
2. Business Consulting.
Today I am an independent Business Consultant focusing on Management Consulting, Corporate Strategy, and Corporate Development.
The combination of my level of education, my analytical skills, and my intelligence allow me to quickly understand and analyze information and data from any field of activity. Here I offer writing analytical reports on any various topics in Technology, Politics, Sports, Media, and so on. For example, I made a valuable report on Plastic to Oil Conversion Technology (Pyrolysis Process).
4. Data Research & Analysis.
In most cases this considers research and analysis of financial figures and indices. I produce basic financial analysis in order to show my Client the current financial situation. However I can research any figures to support your business decision such as a number of personnel, top management’s compensation, decline/increase figures, and many more.
5. Information Research & Analysis.
This includes research and analysis of related news; relevant infographycs; staff information like their current positions, bios, contacts; and facts. Also I provide services on researching of hard-to-find information.
As part of my commitment to client confidentiality agreement and unique analytics and conclusions, you will not see any significant comprehensive reports as samples on my portfolio. However, I am capable to write solid reports of up to a hundred of pages and more depending on the project's targets.
that by no means you will be mentioned in connection with the research and analysis process. I do care about my Client's privacy: each project is done entirely on my behalf or on behalf of third-party company.
FEEDBACK on Elance:
“Maksim was very professional. He not only completed the report I requested; he also provided independent, objective data in the report to back up his conclusions, so that I could fully trust his recommendations without double-checking or questioning how he arrived at his conclusions. I have followed his recommendations and am satisfied. I would definitely use him again.”

“Max is a professional. You get what you asked for, on time and at a fair price. I gave him the task of accumulating a list of companies of a specific type and he consistently made intelligent choices about which companies to include and which not to. When he needed direction, which was seldom, he politely requested it. A pleasure to work with and a first-rate researcher.”
