If you’d like to boost your business and financial acumen, analytics capabilities, consulting skills, and solution design and implementation, this course will help you.

If you are a specialist working in a Center of Expertise, the focus on business and financial acumen, as well as collaboration and co-creating solutions, will help you increase your value to clients and partners.

sHRBP is also suitable for teams or functions transforming from tactical functional specialists to strategic, high impact partners. Since the class focuses on solving a real business challenge, participants will leave with an action plan that they can immediately implement.
