Business Acumen and what it means for you


Business acumen is keenness and quickness in understanding and dealing with a "business situation" in a manner that is likely to lead to a good outcome. Additionally, business acumen has emerged as a vehicle for improving financial performance and leadership development. Consequently, several different types of strategies have developed around improving business acumen.


Business acumen (also known as a business savvy and business sense) is an ability that allows you to understand and cope with different business situations.  We have to make clear that business acumen is not a single skill, but a wide complex of competencies, knowledge, and awareness of multiple aspects of a business.

Some of my main characteristics of competencies that strong business acumen have are:

  • A very good understanding of the extent and importance of business issues.
  • Scrum Master
  • Strong management mindset.
  • Financial acumen, awareness, and knowledge.
  • Decisive and self-confident.
  • Flexible and adaptive to further changes in the future.
  • Understanding the business operations within the organization and the industry competitive environment.
  • The quality of insight – being able to visualize what should be done to achieve particular goals and successful future.
  • Monitor, Analyze, Change (When Necessary), Validate the functionality of the end product according to the requirement specifications.
  • Always keep in mind consequences of a choice for all the affected parties.
  • Focus on the key objectives.

To summarize it in one sentence, a person with strong business acumen skills can “see the whole picture.” If you have business acumen competency, it means you understand how the business works!


Acumen and business awareness are housed in your own mind.




A Closer Look at Human Resource Management.

My Experience in Configuration Management and Expertise in Business Acumen.

My Experience in Configuration Management and Expertise in Business Acumen.

Human resource management is focused on a number of major areas, including:

  • Recruiting and staffing
  • Compensation and benefits
  • Training and learning
  • Labor and employee relations
  • Organization development

Due to the many areas of human resource management, it is typical for professionals in this field to possess specific expertise in one or more areas. Just a few of the related career titles I possess as an HR professional:

  • Training development specialist
  • HR manager
  • Benefits specialist
  • Human resource generalist
  • Employment services manager
  • Compensation and job analysis specialist
  • Training and development manager
  • Recruiter
  • Benefits counselor
  • Personnel analyst


Human resource management involves developing and administering programs that are designed to increase the effectiveness of an organization or business. It includes the entire spectrum of creating, managing, and cultivating the employer-employee relationship.

For most organizations, agencies, and businesses, the human resources department is responsible for:

  • Managing job recruitment, selection, and promotion
  • Developing and overseeing employee benefits and wellness programs
  • Developing, promoting, and enforcing personnel policies
  • Promoting employee career development and job training
  • Providing orientation programs for new hires
  • Providing guidance regarding disciplinary actions
  • Serving as a primary contact for work-site injuries or accidents


Human resource management is about:

Addressing current employee concerns: Unlike company managers who oversee the day-to-day work of employees, HR departments deal with employee concerns such as benefits, pay, employee investments, pension plans, and training. Their work may also include settling conflicts between employees or between employees and their managers.

Acquiring new employees: The human resource management team recruits potential employees, oversees the hiring process (background checks, drug testing, etc.), and provides new employee orientation.

Managing the employee separation process: The HR management team must complete a specific set of tasks if an employee quits, is fired, or is laid off. Paperwork must be completed to ensure that the process was completed legally. Severance pay may be offered or negotiated, benefits must be settled, and access to company resources must be severed via the collection of keys, badges, computers, or sensitive materials from the employee. I am exceptionally experienced in all HR processes.

Improving morale: Effective HR teams encourage company employees to do their best, which contributes to the overall success of the company. Their work often involves rewarding employees for good performance and creating a positive work environment. I believe a positive attitude goes a long way and is hard to fight.


The Agenda of Today’s Human Resource Management Team


Today’s HR management team must focus their efforts on five, critical areas:


Define and align organizational purpose: A company’s employees must be able to clearly articulate why the company exists in order to achieve a purpose-driven, sustainable, high-performing organization. Employees must also understand how their efforts connect, or align, with the organization’s purpose.

Recruit the best talent by creating, marketing, and selling an Employee Value Proposition (EVP): False marketing and misconceptions about an organization are some of the main reasons why the employer-employee relationship fails. Therefore, companies must create, market, and sell an EVP that is true and accurate as to not mislead potential employees. Truth, Trust and Traceability arehuge when hiring the right people.

Focus on employee strengths: Companies must make every effort to understand what candidates and employees do best and put them into roles where they can play to their strengths as much as possible. However, now more and more employees want to learn more on the job and move up within their company.  Therefore, it is og great value to offer training to current employees wishing to move up and mentor employees when possible.

.Create organizational alignment: Achievements must align with the organization’s objectives so as to build a successful and sustainable organization.

Accurately measure the same things: All internal departments and employees must be measuring the same things as to achieve a definitive organizational result and to ensure that everyone knows exactly where the organization is at all times.



It’s not just about knowing your "Human" product, services or business fields.

You have to know about financial metrics (and how to speak the language of finance "Human Capital"), doing thoughtful analysis, effective verbal and non-verbal communication, have deep insight into the marketplace and so many other issues related to the broader needs of the business of Human Relations Management..

The underlying common thread in all these functions is an excellent understanding of the numbers in your line of business. Mastering the numbers enables me to make sound and quick decisions. 


Budgeting and Financial Forecasting


Budgeting-Establishing a plan regarding where management ideally wants to take the company. Budgeting quantifies the expectation of revenues that a business wants to achieve for a future period.

Financial Forecasting – Estimates the number of revenues that will be achieved in a 

future period.

WIP (Work-in-process-or- Work-in-progress) This is the amount of work that has started on an asset or item but has not been delivered to a customer or received payment for the item. In an MFG setting, items that have been received at the factory, but have not been delivered to the customer. In a service industry, a project or task that has been started, but not emailed or faxed to the customer. Different stages may be assigned different labels, depending on the amount of work completed. I provide comprehensive system level CM development experience to identify, document and enhance the program-wide process and documentation for all items under configuration control.

Continuous monitoring

With Configuration Management and ERP - Enterprise Resource Platforms and Strong Business Analysis you are able to continuously monitor and record configuration changes of your Organizational resources. Configuration management  also enables you to inventory your business resources, the configurations of your resources, as well as software configurations within change instances at any point in time. Once change from a previous state is detected, a Simple Notification Service (SNS) notification can be delivered by your ERP for you to review and take action.


Continuous assessment

ERP and Configuration Management allows you to continuously audit and assess the overall compliance of your resource configurations with your organization’s policies and guidelines..  Configuration  Management provides you with the ability to define rules for provisioning and configuring organization resources. These rules can be provisioned independently or packaged together with compliance remediation actions inside a pack (known as a conformance pack) that can be deployed across your entire organization with a single click. Resource configurations or configuration changes that deviate from your rules automatically trigger Simple Notification Service (SNS) notifications and  CloudWatch events so that you can be alerted on a continuous basis. You can also take advantage of the visual dashboard to check your overall compliance status and quickly spot non-compliant resources.


Change management

With your ERP D365 or AWS, etc platform and Configuration Management you are able to track the relationships among resources and review resource dependencies prior to making changes. Once a change occurs, you are able to quickly review the history of the resource's configuration and determine what the resource’s configuration looked like at any point in the past. Configuration Management provides you with information to assess how a change to a resource configuration would affect your other resources, which minimizes the impact of change-related incidents.

Operational troubleshooting

With a strong ERP Platform and Configuration Management you can capture a comprehensive history of your resources, introduce configuration changes to simplify troubleshooting of your operational issues. Configuration  helps you identify the root cause of operational issues through its integration with Cloud Trail, a service that records events related to API calls for your account. Configuration Management  leverages information records to correlate configuration changes to particular events in your account. You can obtain the details of the event API call that invoked the change (e.g., who made the request, at what time, and from which IP address) from the Cloud Trail logs.


Enterprise-wide compliance monitoring

With multi-account, multi-region data aggregation in certain  Configuration Management Platforms,  you can view compliance status across your enterprise and identify non-compliant accounts. You can dive deeper to view status for a specific region or a specific account across regions. You can view this data from the Configuration console in a central account, removing the need to retrieve this information individually from each account, and each region.  I can set your entire organization up for  success!


Continuous audit and compliance

ERP D365 along with strong Configuration Management is designed to help you assess compliance with your internal policies and regulatory standards by providing you visibility into the configuration of your Project  Management resources as well as third-party resources, and evaluating resource configuration changes against your desired configurations on a continuous basis.

Financial analysis is easily entered and tracked when using an ERP platform such as Dynamics 365.


Discovery

Configuration  Management will discover resources that exist in your organization and your ERP will record their current configuration, and capture any changes to these configurations. Configuration  Management  /  ERP programs will also retain configuration details for resources that have been deleted. A comprehensive snapshot of all resources and their configuration attributes provides a complete inventory of resources in your account.


Don’t lose your Intellectual Property  -  I can help you retain your Intellectual Property and take advantage of it when the time is right.  Think  of  “Scotchguard  and  Silly  Putty”!  Those were  just given away and someone made millions from the  giveaway  of intellectual property.

I offer Complete Enterprise Resource Management & Configuration Management

Configuration management (CM) is a systems engineering process for establishing and maintaining consistency of a product's performance, functional, and physical attributes with its requirements, design, and operational information throughout its life. The CM process is widely used by high-end enterprises and military engineering organizations to manage changes throughout the system lifecycle of complex systems, such as Software, Hardware, Firmware, Facility management, HR Management ( A-Check Global & Plum/ SAE) to name a few, weapon systems, military vehicles, autonomous vehicles and complete information systems. Outside the military, the CM process is also used with IT service management as defined by ITIL, and with other organizations like AI due to the need for Cyber security.   I have recommendations for Configuration management programs,  but  you  still  need to make sure you verify you have the correct information in your product.  Your product is only as good as the person or people leading the CM management charge!

-Industries, Projects & Organizations I've worked with-

As an independent business consultant, I’ve implemented dozens of successful ERP Systems over my career and integrated and/or upgrading new roll outs and new ERP systems while minimizing downtime. This includes implementing new ERP training programs and new technological advancements combined with Configuration management.  During difficult financial times requires new ways of thinking and new ways to think about business.

Manufacturing, Automotive, Engineering, Dept. of  Defense, New Business Development, etc. 

 

Even with our recent pandemic, transformative technological (robotics, AI) and the robotic process automation (RPA) is becoming highly sophisticated, removing a lot of manual intervention from workflow processes. Also, internet of things (IoT) systems are creating huge volumes of data related to areas like logistics and manufacturing. Everything passes through ERP, including (AI), artificial intelligence. ERP analysis’s need to be extremely familiar in AI and machine learning,

Implemented/ Upgraded their new ERP (Cloud Based) Microsoft Dynamics 365, replacing Oracle/ NetSuite. > 12 hours of downtime, training materials and webinars for training. Implemented before the upgrade. In addition, I provided ongoing support for continuous improvement and upgrading their customer service. 


UPS

Supply chain ERP implementation. New ERP system transformation for organization after facilitating workshops and comprehensive stakeholder meetings to acquire “discovery” of what UPS needed for the continued success and growth UPS has numerous ERP systems and they were not working as well as they were required to be. UPS site locations needed to be able to communicate with UPS Ready ERP and after multiple meetings, negotiations and training workshops, AQXOLT, ERP Mark 7 was selected as it had built my client an integrated UPS – “The Sub-station-UPS Stores” can easily access critical shipping information without having to leave ERP Mark 7 or go to another website. Now they can offer their customers these functions: UPS tracking, UPS rates and service selection, UPS time in transit, UPS Address Validation and UPS shipping. Configuration Management was needed with documentation tracking, CI, functional documentation and all CMM activities to achieve the success of this transformation.

Configuration Management is For All Projects. Including AI Development of Vehicles, Airplanes and Drones, etc., Including their Financial Impact on the Organizations.

The Configuration Management process area supports all process areas by establishing and maintaining the integrity of work products using an ERP in combination with configuration status accounting, and configuration audits. 

The work products placed under configuration management include the products that are delivered to the customer, designated internal work products, acquired products, tools, and other items that are used in creating and describing these work products.

"Examples of work products that can be placed under configuration management include plans, process descriptions, requirements, design, data, drawings, product specifications, code, compilers, product data files, and product technical publications, financial integrity.

"The purpose of Configuration Management (CM) is to establish and maintain the integrity of work products using configuration identification, configuration control, configuration status accounting, and configuration audits. 

The Configuration Management process area involves the following activities:

  • Identify the Configuration of selected work products that compose baselines at given points in time.
  • Controlling Changes to configuration items
  • Building or providing specifications to build work products from the configuration management system
  • Maintain the integrity of baselines
  • Providing accurate status and current configuration data to developers, end users, and customers.  

"The work products placed under configuration management include the products that are delivered to the customer, designated internal work products, acquired products, tools, and other items used in creating and describing these work products."

Let’s Close the deal - Is having an ERP and Configuration Management worthwhile for my business? Yes, it absolutely is.

Does Configuration Management actually do anything worthwhile?  

Absolutely 100% yes.  Here are some examples:

Traceability in everything we do and traceable in our new ERP Systems.

What can I help you do? I can bring you to the forefront of your industry!

Configuration Management  enables us to do great things.

  • When you look at your organization can you now see thousands to millions of items:
  • Hardware, Software, Facilities, documents, and the thousands of people involved in making it all happen.


Bringing Together Company and Customer, 

Products, People and Data Connected and Ready for your success! 

Configuration Management is a set of processes that allows us to manage our "end-items", peripheral equipment, all related information and associated changes that we input to our ERP Platform are all "CM" Configuration Items.

By continuously improving our CM processes we will continue to do great things - more efficiently and effectively and cost effective.

Think about these things.....


Autonomous Vehicles:  

Defense-Apache Helicopters and  Drones::

  • A Flying Hardware/Software/IT Solution loaded with weapons.  (CM) during design?
  • (CM) during O & M?
  • (CM) during decommissioning?  

                  YOU BET!


Knowing aircraft manufacturers require (CM) should make us a bit more comfortable when traveling.
Home Construction? Of course they need to manage and control.


CM  applies  to  your  lunch...
A Sandwich? 

Think about "Subway" 

  • BOMs - Yes
  • Work Instructions? Yes
  • Recipes that need to be followed? Yes

Think about this..... VW Golf Parts Configuration

The depth and uniformity of documentation relating to configuration control and accounting, historically, have been comparatively shallow...

When a successful new flight or autonomous drive is finally made and the buyer says, "Build me 10 more," does  industry find themselves in the following circumstances:

  • Was their prototype expended...?
  • If Not....

They obviously did not have adequate records of all  part numbers,  serial numbers, Configuration identification (CI) of items, chronology of changes, nor change management accomplishment.  Internal technical publications such as work instructions, did not reflect all the various changes correctly.  

It was obvious that a second success could not be guaranteed, nor an identical article produced without accurate configuration identification record management.

Configuration Management provides  100%  Conforming Compliance and Complete knowledge of your products.

My strong work ethic Is important to express to my employers and future team members. Employees who understand and possess a willingness to work hard, realize how important it is to also work smart. It means learning the most efficient way to complete tasks and finding ways to save time while completing assignments and caring about your job enough to complete all projects while maintaining confidentiality and a positive attitude. Doing more than is expected on the job is a good way to show management that you utilize good time management skills and don’t waste valuable company time and money.

Being dependable and responsible as an employee shows your employer that you value your job and that you are responsible for keeping up with projects and keeping them informed of the things that they should know about.

It is the enthusiastic employee who creates an environment of good will and who provides a positive role model for others. A positive attitude is something that is most valued by supervisors and co-workers, and that also makes the job more pleasant and fun to go to each day. 


Also by having compassion and being considerate and diplomatic are imperative in any successful organization.  I am finely tuned into the needs and concerns of our consumers and colleagues.

In Short, Employers seek employees who are adaptable and maintain flexibility in completing tasks in an ever-changing workplace. Being open to change and improvements provides an opportunity to complete work assignments more efficiently while offering additional benefits to the corporation, the customer, and even the employee.

Self-Motivated

Employers look for employees who require little supervision and direction to get the work done in a timely and professional manner. Supervisors who hire self-motivated employees do themselves an immense favor. Self-motivated employees require very little direction from their supervisors. Once a self-motivated employee understands his/her responsibility on the job, they will do it without any prodding from others. Employers can do their part by offering a safe, supportive, work environment that offer employees an opportunity to learn and grow. Working in a supportive work environment and taking the initiative to be self-directive will provide employees with a better sense of accomplishment and increased self-esteem.

Motivated to Grow and Learn: In an ever-changing workplace, employers seek employees who are interested in keeping up with new developments and knowledge in the field. It has been noted that one of the top reasons employees leave their employers is the lack of opportunity for career development within the organization. Learning new skills, techniques, methods, and/or theories through professional development helps keep the organization at the top of its field and makes the employee's job more interesting and exciting. Keeping up with current changes in the current field of their business is vital for success and increased job security.

This is at the top of my core values. Employers value employees who maintain a sense of honesty and integrity above all else. 


Good relationships are built on trust. When working for an employer, they want to know that they can trust what you say and what you do. 'If i say I will do something, you can count on it". 


Successful businesses work to gain the trust of customers and maintain the attitude that “the customer is always right.”  It is the responsibility of each person to use their own individual sense of moral and ethical behavior when working with and serving others within the scope of their job.  Our  personal  untarnished  reputation  is  all  you  really  have  beyond  knowledge.  And  manners.
