Financial Acumen Education
Build Your Professionals’ Ability to Speak the Language of Business and Finance
PSI’s approach to building financial acumen ensures your professionals “speak the language of your business” and provide insight into the lines of business they support.
Your professionals don’t have to be a financial whiz to add value, but they do need financial acumen. Financial acumen helps build a solid understanding of what drives a company’s profits and expenses and how key financial metrics are used to:
- Understand the financial goals of your company
- Recognize why management is taking certain actions and what needs to improve
- Determine how to help your company make more money, save more money and improve those key metrics management is tracking
Our Financial Acumen Solutions Include:
