"If you don't drive your business, you will be driven out of business."
~ B. C. Forbes

  • Business skills are the third most important behavioral competency needed to succeed, trailing only Leadership and Ethics. (SHRM)
  • "Successful digital business transformation requires every individual to acquire and demonstrate business acumen to effectively execute on the digital business strategy." (CIO Magazine)
  • For those companies that  align learning and business priorities  more than 70 percent were able to improve company revenue. (Brandon Hall)
