Big Picture: Dilbert
After Training Resources
At its heart “business acumen” means knowing how your company makes money, and making better decisions around the money you make, no matter your role.
A company that doesn’t know how it makes money isn’t likely to make more.
When we teach people to “see the big picture,” we'll often ask a pretty simple question, "How does your company, specifically, make money?" Too often the responses are laden with overly complex pontifications about some statistic that's pretty meaningless… but hey, it sounds smart.
The bottom line: Avoid unnecessary complexity and remember what Einstein said…
"Everything Should Be Made as Simple as Possible – But Not Simpler."
