Global Director, Talent Management
Want to transform your workforce to think like business owners? Acumen Learning can provide the strategic lever to do just that. I've worked with Acumen Learning in two industries and they are world class. Ben Cook, President of Acumen Learning was our facilitator both times and to hear him speak, you'd think he was an employee of our company. Talk about modeling the way . . .
I have used the Business Acumen training to help business leaders and executives better see the big picture and to better understand the connections between the levers they use to drive the business forward.
We know your industry…
Our consultants have worked directly with over 200 different companies and have conducted research on all of their top competitors. This gives them an unparalleled perspective into a wide range of industries. What are the main strategies for driving growth in retail? How are hospitals navigating new industry regulations? Who’s leading in the energy sector? We know the answers to these questions and more, and we’ll give your teams information specific to your business and partners' needs.
Do your employees understand the business of your business?
While most people understand their job, only one out of ten understand metrics that are important to their CEO, and 95% don’t understand their company’s strategy. You end up with employees who are more interested in only getting their work done than in seeing how their work contributes to the bottom line. But when employees have business acumen, productivity accelerates, engagement improves, and solutions come together as individuals, teams, and executives align around common objectives.
CEOs want business leaders…
CEOs need employees who aren't just great at their role but exceptional business leaders. Someone who can help them along the path forward. A business leader who makes strategic, data-driven actions. In other words, your CEO wants to have business people who just so happen to be in HR or IT or Engineering.
As such, your training will have a particular focus on executive needs. Participants will be taught how to quickly analyze your company's communications from a strategic and financial perspective and create action items around that strategy.
