About Us

Acumen Business Consulting started in 2000 with a single dream – to deliver business success to organisations across the globe. Acumen focuses on providing practical, highly customised and implementable solutions through its consulting and organisation development engagements.
Acumen has conducted over 200 engagements across India covering industry verticals like Manufacturing, Real Estate, FMCG, Telecom, Automotive and Pharmaceuticals. Our clients include large conglomerates, up and coming players from the SME space as well as family managed businesses.
Acumen believes that each organisation is unique and that there are no “best-practices” that will work in every organisation. Any solution must take into account both, the ground realities and the culture of the business, if it is to give value to our clients.

Why Us?

ROI Oriented Offerings

We say that even before the start of the engagement, our clients reap immense benefits. Stated expectations, unstated expectations, conflicting expectations – we recognize all of them, and respect each one’s place and merit.

Trusted by Respected Companies

We are invited as sounding boards by our key clients on all critical matters. Year on year, around 60% of our revenue comes from our existing clients. Last year, we asked some of our long standing clients a direct question. Why Acumen? All the answers revolved around one theme: You guys may already have the solution, or may not… but what we know for sure is, you will find one that suits us.

Sustainable Solutions

Imparting knowledge is one thing. Making it applicable and deriving business results out of it is a different ball game all together; a game at which we excel. We have integrated Instruction Lead Trainings with Online Sustenance Models.

Diverse Expertise

Our facilitators are management consultants to various business houses, not just behavioral trainers. This experience and exposure makes them the most practical and sought after facilitators for any engagement.

Innovative Engagement Methodologies

People have short attention spans. Therefore, the challenge of making our interventions relevant and efficient is what we relish. We have experimented with music, dance, drama, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and movie making. The outcomes are unique, yet relevant methodologies.

Helping you do Better

Our Values

Client First

Client first… always. We realize that the client is as important to us as we are to them. We never fail to recognize this, and go that extra mile to ensure that they get what they want. We believe in earning the client’s trust and making sure that we never, ever, let them down.


Passion is the raw energy which inhabits every cell of your being. It’s power breaks down all resistance to its path. No peak is unscalable for it, no depth unfathomable. When you have done something with passion, you would have had fun doing it; there will be sweat on your brow, a glow on your face, and magic in the task that you have performed…

Sharpen The Saw, Constantly

We are paid for our expertise and knowledge. It is vital for you to remain current at all times. Prevent obsolescence in yourself by constantly being in training, and always be an apprentice, never an expert. Be open to recognizing your teachers. They come disguised in various forms. Clients, parents, colleagues, a child on the street, situations in your life, are some of the disguises your teachers wear. Take the learning’s. Allow yourself to make mistakes, new mistakes. Never repeat mistakes.


Integrity is honesty to yourself; doing what you say and saying what you do; making meaningful commitments and then meet them at all times, regardless of the circumstances. It is about speaking your mind, gently, yet fearlessly, even when it is uncomfortable to do so. It is about walking your talk so strongly, that you do not need to talk. Your walk… is your talk.

Quest For Excellence

A quest for excellence is about raising the bar of your performance threshold constantly, setting and meeting targets that are out of the ordinary; and exceeding performance commitments. It means shunning mediocrity in yourself, not accepting it in others and always ensuring that everything you do, in any sphere of life, carries your own unique signature.

People Create, Organizations Don’t

People are the only resource that we have. They have to be nurtured with as much care as a gardener tending a new sapling. Treat all your colleagues in that fashion. Allow them to grow so that they become the best that they are capable of becoming. Encourage them. When they fall, give them a hand, to get them back on to their feet. And in so doing, you are accomplishing two things… earning their trust and speeding up your growth.
