Why is business acumen so important?
Are your managers, technical specialists and sales professionals empowered to run their part of the business like BUSINESS PARTNERS?
Do they have the right business acumen?
Problems making good decisions?
- Choosing between price increase vs cost reduction (but still give a discount)
- Not understanding the root causes of your overdue invoices from your clients – they keep piling, and you keep chasing
- Dilemma on choosing between running overtime vs getting contract labour
- Always tempted to buy more materials due to a price break, even if they are not needed right away
- Technical and the finance teams not communicating? Marketing promising what production can’t deliver?
- Technical specialists not mindful when to purchase fixed assets? Clueless about the right amount for R&D?
- Staff undercharging clients for their expert services
