Help employees grasp what it takes to run a business

It’s no secret that executing strategic goals is the greatest challenge in business today. Yet in order to be more effective in achieving the goals of the enterprise, every employee needs a grasp on essential business strategy development principles–what's required to run a business, where his or her job fits into the big picture, and how he or she contributes to the business. Imagine an organization where individual contributors not only focus on the wildly important priorities, they also know what it takes to operate a business successfully.

What the CEO Wants You to Know: Building Business Acumen helps individuals grasp:

  1. How cash is generated and why it’s critical
  2. Margin and the importance of making money and being profitable
  3. Velocity and the process through which someone can turn inventory or capital
  4. What creates growth and why
  5. Why customers buy from some businesses and not from others
  6. The purpose of the annual report and its key components
  7. How the price/earnings ratio is calculated and used
  8. How to link initiatives to the five essential elements of business.

  • Understand the importance of making money and being profitable.
  • Apply the process through which you can turn inventory or capital.
