Business Acumen for Non-Finance Managers


Wouldn’t it be great if your employees could understand the “Big Picture” when it comes to how your organization works, what your strategy is and how strategic decisions are made based on the financial performance of your organization? To make this happen, organizations need to provide educational opportunities for their employees to learn about business acumen so that they can wear the “hat’ of the business’ owners and speak the language of the business.
