Real Business Sense

Speech: Real Business Sense: What Your IT Staff Needs To Know About How Your Business Works How much about how a business operates does your IT team know and understand? In today’s fast moving hyper-competitive business environment, the IT department staff needs to understand the basic business fundamentals that drive the market that your business operates in.

All too often, the IT team has a great understanding of technical issues that relate to servers, software, and network issues. However, when it comes to sales, marketing, operations, procurement, etc. they often have very little understanding of how your business operates.

If you have the time and the funding, you can have your entire staff take time off and get MBAs. However, even if you could do this, your staff would have good general information but they might still be missing the specifics on the details of how your business operates. This is a critical point because if you team doesn’t know how the rest of the business operates, then they will never be able to adequately meet your needs.

This program from Blue Elephant Consulting provides your staff with a complete overview of how businesses operate with specific information about how your company does business. The goal of the program is to finally show your IT team how all of the pieces fit together. Once they see this, they’ll have a better understanding of how their individual efforts contribute to the company’s success.

The business insights presented in this program will provide your staff with a comprehensive understanding of business that will change the way that your staff view their jobs, the department, and their individual contributions.
