The Business Acumen Gauge was developed by Quad Assessment as a result of a recognised need for this element of leadership and organisational performance to be mapped, measured and managed.
The term Business Acumen is mentioned frequently in the public domain yet there is no universal agreement on what constitutes Business Acumen. The Business Acumen Gauge aggregates the critical capabilities identified by top tier leaders as being fundamental for organisational success. The diagnostic process allows you to identify which of those capabilities are most crucial for your organisation and use that agreed matrix to map, measure and improve leadership capability.

The Business Acumen Gauge theoretical framework is made up of eleven capabilities, each one represented by a range of observable behaviours. Each capability will be more or less relevant for your organisation resulting in a framework that aligns with the expectations of your most senior leaders.
