Do you understand how your organisation attains sustainability?
Two-thirds of corporate executives believe a lack of business skills or business acumen inhibits their company from meeting strategic priorities. It was established that most strategic plans fail to achieve their strategic goals due to the turbulent changes that exist in the global market today. Since most of the failures in the strategic process occur at the execution stage it is increasingly important that managers at all levels learn how to implement these vital plans while manoeuvring through the changes that occur as a result of the dynamics of the markets.
An organization of high business acumen individuals can expect to see leaders with a heightened perspective that translates into an ability to inspire and excite the organization to achieve its full strategic potential. As your leadership responsibilities expand, so does your need to understand the impact of every decision on the strategic and financial goals of your organization. That's why business acumen—an intuitive sense of how the moving parts of a company work together to create profit —is indispensable.
