Supporting Quotes:

  • “A brilliant course delivered energetically, enthusiastically, and with emphasis on ensuring understanding. One of the most interesting non-technical courses I have undertaken in 20+ yrs.”

It was high-level yet detailed enough for nonfinancial managers to understand the 5 Drivers of business and how to leverage the information. It was fun and easy to digest, and not at all painful. I highly recommend managers and team members take this course to broaden their business acumen.”

  • “The instructor gave great examples and explanations and explained the ‘Why’! The learnings are going to help me see the bigger picture and frame conversations with our executives. Thank you for an engaging and energetic experience! Will highly recommend this to my peers.”

  • “This training is amazing. I love that our own company and our competitor’s financial data were used, which makes me feel more connected to the class. I would say this is the best training I’ve ever had in my life.”

  • “The passion Ben had for teaching the class was extraordinary. I really do hope the course can be shared more broadly to provide everyone a chance to know more about Business Acumen and make a change in their daily works. It definitely helped me in understanding more about the business.”

  • “Dell has a long and storied history of innovating in everything they do,” said Acumen Learning’s President, Ben Cook. “And their thirst for finding new and better ways to not only innovate but also better align their decisions to the strategic direction and financial impact of the company was evident throughout the whole learning experience with their Products & Operations leaders. It was extremely rewarding to help these leaders be even more innovative and financially impactful to this great company. It’s an honor to add a top 5 technology company to our client list.”
