The Details

This Business Acumen Public Workshop is designed to help emerging leaders by demonstrating how to think about the multi-dimensional aspects that make up business acumen as shown in the Business Acumen Canvas, and as articulated in The Business Acumen Handbook.  The workshop’s comprehensive skill-building exercises reinforce key concepts by offering the opportunity to practice and apply.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to:

  1. Viewing elements of business on a granular level, and then from a systemic, holistic standpoint.
  2. Utilizing the Business Acumen Canvas to portray every aspect of business acumen.
  3. Learning how to assume a “market first” strategic perspective in decision-making
  4. Adopting a critical-thinking mindset to identify and collaboratively solve problems
  5. Understanding how the company’s products contribute to its competitive advantage
  6. Leveraging storytelling to garner support and paint portraits of the future
  7. Cultivating a ‘business owner’ mindset
  8. Eligibility for the business acumen certification exam. 

At the Business Acumen Institute, we believe that leadership and management capabilities can be fortified when people are taught how to think holistically about the business, and how their actions impact bottom-line results.

The Business Acumen Handbook

Leaders rely on business people to see the big picture and get things done. They want mindset and mojo, all in one! The problem is that all business people aren’t wired that way, and that’s where The Business Acumen Handbook comes in.

The book is filled with tools, templates, exercises, and guidelines. It also introduces readers to their own individual business acumen assessment so that they can create a purposeful career and professional development strategy.
