In order to ensure a seamless transition strategy, a newly acquired American manufacturing company has partnered with Acumen Learning to offer customized business acumen training.
The company has established itself as a leader in its industry but recognized the importance of enhancing its business acumen skills during the acquisition process and moving forward.
The company’s large manufacturing base, combined with its strong dealer network, gives it a distinctive position in the industry. The company stands out by prioritizing innovation, investing in R&D to improve their products and meeting customers' evolving needs.
To support these objectives, Acumen Learning provided a customized business acumen course to the company’s mid and senior-level leadership teams. The course focused on aligning the company’s strategies and growth objectives across the entire leadership team.
A top priority for the company was ensuring that the best practices established by the company’s founders were successfully integrated into the culture of the new larger organization, paving the way for a seamless transition and long-term success.
The results of this business acumen course have been well received by participants who gave it a perfect Net Promoter Score of 100—every participant would highly recommend this business acumen course to their peers.
Acumen Learning has now worked with several global manufacturing companies offering customized business and financial acumen courses designed to help them with their number one priority to meet production targets while maintaining quality.
“I loved the delivery method — a mix of teaching, storytelling and facilitating interesting dialogue. As an individual who deals more in words than in numbers, I'm pleasantly surprised to feel confident now to read our next balance sheet.”
“Great mechanism for tying together the concepts that we hear from executives but don't always understand.”
“Excellent! Understanding how different activities impact the org's financials is not something I have been exposed to in the past.”
“As a CPA, I appreciated the refresher on how to summarize key concepts in a way that is easy for others to comprehend.”
"I truly believe that investing in business skills can help companies navigate changes like acquisitions more successfully and smoothly," said Acumen Learning's Director of Business Development, Brian Peterson. "I’m confident that the knowledge and insights gained through this program will be a valuable asset to this company long after its transition.”
