Business acumen underpins knowledge, sound decision making capabilities and having the confidence to lead your organisation or department.
Plan of action
The term business acumen is simply the art of linking an insightful assessment of the external business world with an understanding of how money can be made. Then stakeholders develop key strategies to deliver desired results. This intelligence provides great scope to make good business judgements and quick decisions that are ultimately profitable for your organisation.
No single aspect of managerial skill is more important. If the assessments and assumptions taken are inaccurate, your organisation’s strategic positioning is likely to be misplaced. The result is developing wrong capabilities, hiring unskilled people, entering into the wrong markets and focusing energy on non-profitable activities.
This program helps participants to understand business acumen, the proven linkages that exist and the importance of developing strategic skill sets.
“You have to combine instinct with good business acumen. You just can’t be creative, and you just can’t be analytical.” – Andrea Jung
