  • The Busi­ness Acu­men Work­shop is pop­u­lar amongst newly appointed man­agers where an under­stand­ing of finance, strat­egy, and deci­sion mak­ing is required. Most man­agers and employ­ees, how­ever, are respon­si­ble for spe­cific areas, and they have lit­tle under­stand­ing of the impact their deci­sions have on other areas. When too much focus is placed on one aspect of the busi­ness, it is dif­fi­cult to make deci­sions for the good of the com­pany. In order to make effec­tive deci­sions, it is nec­es­sary for you to exam­ine the big picture.
