The leader in customized Business Acumen Training

Acumen Learning

At Acumen Learning, our purpose is to teach employees how to make faster and better business decisions– we teach them how their company makes money, how their decisions impact the bottom line, and why their role matters. We specialize in customized business and financial acumen courses that are relevant, interactive, and actionable. Your results will be employees who are more engaged, aligned, and committed to having an immediate and enduring impact on company performance.
In our experience with Fortune 500 companies from around the world, we’ve learned that to become a top performer employees need to be able to:

  • Use the 5 Business Drivers® to understand how their company operates and makes money
  • Develop a working knowledge of their company’s financial statements
  • Align their individual and team decisions (micro) to executive initiatives (macro)
  • Engage in the overall business by recognizing how their role impacts company results
  • Think more strategically and create action plans that improve financial performance

Our customized courses are framed around these core competencies to help your employees stay focused on the strategic decisions and practical actions that build business momentum.

That’s what today’s CEOs want, and that’s what truly sets us apart.

  • Business IQ® for Sales Professionals

    Today’s customers want a business partner – not a pitch – someone who can help them see the path forward. They want standouts who are more consultative, more savvy when it comes to business, and more engaged in the success and prosperity of their clients. In other words, your best salespeople are good businesspeople.


    Business IQ for Sales Professionals will pull from the learning modules used in our 1-, 2-, or 4-day courses, but instead of diving into your company’s operations and financials, participants will gain a business oriented understanding of their clients. For example, instead of exploring your company’s P&L, we may delve into a client’s P&L and pinpoint line items and strategic challenges that your solutions may directly or indirectly impact.

  • Seeing the Big Picture® – Understanding Your Quarterly Earnings

    Quarter after quarter and year after year company executives release earnings and share valuable insights into the operations of the company. What competitive and economic factors are impacting performance and how will the company react to these factors? How do these factors impact consumer and business buying decisions? How well is the company positioned to stimulate customer demand for products and services? Are inventories at appropriate levels, given cash management priorities and the company’s tolerance for risk? How dependent is the company on distributors, carriers, and other third parties?


    Either as a standalone solution or a follow up to the Building Business Acumen® course, our consultants will break down the numbers, cut through the clutter, and help build alignment and increase engagement.
