About This Business Acumen Training Course

Business Acumen Training Course in Singapore

Many people believe that one is born with business acumen, which is defined as the ability to assess an external market and make effective decisions. Knowing what is required to navigate and devise a successful business seems innate for certain people. For example, Steve Jobs showed a remarkable business acumen. Fortunately, it is possible for the rest of us to improve business acumen. The proper training combined with experience will grow your business savvy.

Business Acumen is the art of understanding how a business works and adapting to any unforeseen changes that would benefit or harm its sales in order to maintain good results. It is important to learn this skill whether you’re a young professional in your first job or a seasoned manager involved in key business decisions, yet few professionals have devoted time to mastering this essential skill needed by every professional.

Business acumen demands an understanding of finance, strategy, and decision making. Managers and employees are responsible for specific areas. However, most have little knowledge of the influence their decisions have on other areas of business. When too much attention is placed on one aspect of the business, it is challenging to make decisions for the benefit of the company. To make effective decisions, it is necessary for you to examine the big picture.

Knowing how the business model operates is not enough to succeed in producing good results. The key to success can be found in the developed understanding of how businesses operate at the macro-level and the micro-level in order to adapt to any unexpected situation in the business.

“95% of employees don’t understand their organisation’s strategy.” – Harvard Business review
