A top 10 commercial vehicle manufacturer has joined forces with Acumen Learning for business acumen training solutions, to empower its employees with business acumen and align them to the organization’s strategic vision.
The company recognized the need for a substantial cultural change to adapt to industry transformation and prioritize solution-focused approaches. The initiative focused on empowering employees to take more ownership and accountability for decisions, cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset, and fostering a broader perspective within the organization.
Acumen Learning facilitated a customized two-day business acumen course that brought together L&D leaders, managers, vice presidents, and representatives from the manufacturing, communication, and e-mobility sectors. The participants left the program with a renewed ability to see the big picture, understanding the broader mission of the company and the impact of their roles in driving both cultural transformation and revenue growth.
The business acumen course delivered outstanding results, receiving positive feedback from both participants and the leadership team. By tackling the cultural obstacles that hindered employee retention and talent attraction, we successfully contributed to a 5% reduction in retention costs. This achievement improved engagement, alignment, and enhanced participants’ business acumen skills.
Acumen Learning is happy to add a top 10 commercial vehicle manufacturing company to its esteemed list of clients. This partnership adds another prominent company to its portfolio, cementing its position as a trusted provider of business acumen training to top-tier players in the industry.
“This course had a lot of good information spread out over the 2 day sessions. It was very broad in the coverage of financial statements and how different groups impact them. As someone in Finance, it was a good refresh and reminded me of my time studying in college.”
“Very good on basic financial drivers for a company and how to understand financial statements.”
“Excellent session, Ryan kept it engaging and interactive. Lots of relevant content to my role and company.”
“It has been clear to us in our 20+ years of working with every industry, every function, and in every geography, that every business needs smarter businesspeople at all levels,” says Ben Cook, President of Acumen Learning. “Business acumen equips each individual with the knowledge, insights, and mindset to make business-savvy decisions, seize new opportunities, and drive sustainable success. In today’s complex and interconnected world, developing strong business acumen is not just a competitive advantage; it is an essential skill for thriving in any role or industry.”
“It was truly inspiring to witness these leaders embrace the business concepts and cultural shifts of their company,” said Ryan Hunt, Senior Financial Consultant at Acumen Learning.” I loved witnessing the positive impact it had on their understanding of the company’s strategy and their role in it. Seeing their growth in business acumen and their newfound ability to ‘see the big picture’ has been immensely rewarding.”
