News Facts:

  • Acumen Learning recently teamed up with the world's 10th largest Food and Beverage company on a customized business and financial acumen course designed for their Market Leaders.

  • The company has an executive initiative to move from a financial focus emphasizing cost reduction and percentage margins to a new strategy focusing on volume-driven profitable growth. Further, the company is moving from a centralized matrix organization to a new structure that emphasizes clear accountability and a local first approach. Acumen Learning's business acumen course was customized to help Market Leaders implement these strategic shifts.

  • To accomplish the learning objectives, Market Leaders attend three different one-day onsite Building Business Acumen sessions facilitated by an Acumen Learning consultant. This strategy provides Market Leaders with a unique opportunity to network and workshop with their peers from different geographies and business units. The time between sessions, typically a month or two, also allows Market Leaders to put their new learnings into practice and report back to the group on what worked well and what could be even better.

  • The results of the business acumen course have been well received by participants who gave it a perfect Net Promoter Score of 100. This means every participant would highly recommend this business acumen course to their peers.

  • Acumen Learning has now worked with 5 of the world's top 10 biggest Food and Beverage companies to implement customized business acumen courses.

  • "Building a consumer-centric growth-focused organization is hard enough," said Acumen Learning's Senior Consultant and Food and Beverage expert Kenny Snarr, "Building a consumer-centric growth-focused Food and Beverage company can be even harder. There's increasing competition, there's the balance between global and local brands, there are channel expansion considerations, and the list goes on and on. And, the list is always changing. To succeed, you need leaders who understand the overarching strategy while being agile enough to make adjustments along the way. You can't accomplish this without business acumen."
