Do senior manager, business executives usually have all the business acumen they need? After all, they do have vast amounts of business experience.


Business acumen is an almost intuitive and applicable comprehension of how your company makes money, built up of three main capabilities:

  • A backbone understanding of what drives profitability and cash flow – Have a comprehensive picture of company internal operation process.
  • A market-focused approach to the business – Have strong awareness of market environment information management mindset.
  • An overall big picture understanding of the business and its interrelationships – Grasp the information about the company's industry trends and competitors' developments.

Together, these three tenets enable leaders to make better business decisions.


  • 提升盈利能力和现金流有透彻的理解,即具有公司内部运营全局观
  • 以市场为中心的业务管理途径,即具有市场大环境信息管理的意识
  • 对业务有全局的了解以及相互间的关系,即对公司所在行业发展趋势和竞争对手动态的信息掌握
