Many successful, critical thinking decision making executives have difficulty bridging the gap between functional expertise and general management skills. All too often, the specialized skills that made them invaluable in their former role become far less useful in a general management role, while the need for general business skills and decision making tools increases. This skill is often referred to as “business acumen,” which is described as an intuitive understanding of how companies make money and a realization that a compelling vision can be effectively translated into an actionable strategy. We have all met people who have this ability, and we understand that this skill will carry these people much further than specialized expertise alone. This course will “jump start” your business acumen, help you develop compelling business strategies and a communications plan. For more information, click here. Program Dates: June 9–11, 2014
