Introduction
Many people think that business acumen is innate. However, it is defined as the ability to assess an external market and take efficient decisions, acknowledging what is necessary to move forward and create a successful business. Fortunately, it is plausible for all individuals to enhance their business acumen. The suitable training combined with some professional experience will improve your business savvy. Many managers and employees are specialized in their field and do not have a clear understanding of their decision’s impact on other areas. But, when too much focus is placed on one aspect of the business, it is difficult to make decisions for the good of the company; hence, in order to make effective decisions, it is indispensable to examine the business’s big picture. 

The certification is accredited by Chartered Management Institute with 35 Professional Contact Hours. Participants will receive additional a certificate, besides ACAD’s Professional Certificate from Charetered Management Institute UK. For more information, visit www.managers.org.uk
