Business Acumen is probably one of the most critical skills required by professionals in the 21st century.

It is extremely helpful in understanding how a business can be analysed; identify and know which steps are required and what kind of strategic tactics are required to effectively plan ahead in based on capabilities, KPI’s, market trends, environmental scanning and analysing any operation from an ‘outside – in’ perspective.
