Your staff is your greatest resource and keeping your staff well trained pays big dividends.  There are many opportunities for outside training such as external workshops, conventions, and seminars.  To save travel expense and reduce lost productivity bring a trainer onsite, or customize your web video. 


Acumen can offer experienced and dynamic trainers for small or large groups.  Recent examples of training sessions include: 

  • The new OMB Uniform Guidance - What Do These Changes Mean for Us?

  • Unconscious Bias in Recruiting - Training our Search Committees for Optimal Outcomes

  • Developing an achievable budget and monitoring it throughout the year

  • Institutionalizing Conflict-of-Interest Policies and Procedures

  • QuickBooks training for accounting staff

  • Internal Controls in Accounting: Why they are important and how we can test for them

  • Making sense of that Financial Statement! A Manager's Guide to understanding financial results

  • Effective Performance Reviews

We design our training to be collaborative, energetic, and fun. We leave behind resources that can be used again for future reference.

Acumen also organizes management retreats where off-site locations allow greater focus on key organizational issues such as defining your mission statement or next year's operating plan.  Acumen's skilled leaders can help guide you to important outcomes for your organization.
