Your company needs business leaders.

Acumen Learning's Building Business Acumen® courses deliver transformative learning experiences to drive leadership, productivity, engagement, financial literacy, alignment… Should we keep going?

Here’s the reality – 95% of employees don’t understand their company’s strategy.

How can they, then, set the right priorities, allocate resources effectively, or contribute meaningfully to strategic initiatives? They can’t. And the result? Disengagement, misalignment, and ultimately, an organization operating at a fraction of its potential.

Fortunately, business acumen can be taught.

Ask your CFO…

What is a lack of business acumen costing you?

Can every team member explain your company's money-making process in such a way that inspires and engages people? If not, you’re losing money. 

How many decisions are made too quickly or not quick enough? How many of your employees don’t understand what your CEO talked about on your last earnings call — because they didn't listen to it? How many of your leaders are faking it when it comes to finance? 

Ask yourself… 

What are you waiting for?

Lectures from your finance department or Professor Stuffy aren't going to cut it. And don't even get us started on board games and generic simulations – your people deserve better. You need to follow a process that not only develops new skills but reinforces those skills and holds people accountable for using them.


Not understanding business is costing you business. So let's get going!
