Business changes constantly, but the essential building blocks of business and management remain the same. From marketing and strategy to finance and operations and HR, managers grow and becomes experts in their functional areas and silos. But do they understand how these functional parts work and interact to make a business whole? Do they understand the industry’s competitive dynamic and their company’s strategy? Can they appreciate and how their work impacts the financials? If not, their business impact will be exceedingly low. Frankly, they are aren’t quite ready to “move up.” It would be every CEOs dream to have managers who can think and act cross functionally, understand financials and help take the business to the next level of profitable growth. Business Acumen is the launch pad for enhanced market orientation and decision making ; business competence & confidence and the high performance imperative with enlarged scope and depth of roles/ responsibilities.
