Introduction

A study from the Economist Intelligence Unit reports that two-thirds of corporate executives believe a lack of business skills or business acumen inhibits their company from meeting strategic priorities. 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.
