Professionals who understand the business and industry dynamics have a competitive advantage in these volatile and economically challenging times. Every successful professional is expected to act as an advisor or consultant, to provide strategic forward-looking advice at some point in their career. Professionals cannot transition to such roles and delight customers or employers, unless they understand the operational and environmental realities of the industry they operate in. Each industry has its own expectations, business model, sectors, inscrutable acronyms, supply and distribution chains, competitive landscape and challenges. Enhance your industry domain knowledge and gain competitive advantage for growth of your business and career.
What do we mean by domain knowledge?
Domain knowledge is the knowledge about the environment in which the business organizations operates, and it encompasses understanding of the industry dynamics, history, sectors and segments, business model, competitive landscape, value chain, customers, supply chain, challenges and the industry specific strategies of the target enterprise. Domain Knowledge is the knowledge of a particular industry. 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. The term "business acumen" is the knowledge and understanding of the financial, accounting, marketing and operational functions of an organization.
