Understand the Systems of Business

Business acumen training is critical to global business today. It is a must-have across all levels of audiences within your company, not a "nice to have” when there is a little extra budget left over in HR to spend at the end of the year. 

We define Business Acumen as the deep and applicable understanding of the system of how a business executes its strategy to achieve its goals and objectives. Business Acumen includes a thorough understanding of the “levers” that create, position, and deliver a value proposition to customers and how you measure success through profitability, cash flow, and shareholder value.
