Business Acumen Leadership
The Business Acumen Leadership
simulation and learning design presents the complex, ambiguous world of numerous ongoing work activities that represent cost drivers to functional and project areas (e.g., service pool/service providing business units). As in real life, experienced managers are responsible for managing the balance between the success criteria of organizational performance and customer satisfaction while building the human capital and supporting institutional infrastructure within specific cost constraints. Often the hardest problems to solve are the ones that seem to touch so many points in the organization's systems, but these are the keys to improving business performance.
The overriding goal of this workshop is to improve business and cost management awareness through effective planning, implementing, and coordinating of work within the organization - all within the context of expecting managers to accomplish more work with fewer resources, tighter schedules, and less funding. The objective is to embed management behaviors to maximize resources usage through meticulous planning with the goal of meeting customer expectations while minimizing costs.
