Do your employees know how they impact your bottom line?

Today’s modern employees are increasingly specialized in order to have the greatest impact. But that often means they don’t see how the whole organization runs, and how their role affects the bottom line.

Building Business Acumen is based on the book What the CEO Wants You to Know by Ram Charan. Drawn from his years of experience working with Fortune 100 CEOs, the course provides employees with C-level insights of how an organization runs so they can align their efforts to your business goals and maximize your bottom line.

Step back and get a total picture of the business. As you cut through the complexity, you will get a clear fix on what is happening in the real world.

— Ram Charan
