“Top 10 Business Unit Managers on LinkedIn” 2

Certified Business Unit Manager™

             What does it mean when you say you are a Business Unit Manager (business unit manager)? Well, it means you have responsibility for a Business Unit. Then you might ask, “What is a business unit”. 

             A business unit is a profit center, which focuses on offering goods in a given market. Business units have a separate marketing plan, strategy, sales plan, project management office, R&D, quality, business culture, operations and a competitive landscape, even though they may be part of a larger business entity.

             Where do business unit managers come from? Many come from sales, marketing, finance or other leadership backgrounds. However, project managers are equally suited to hold this position in a company. 

             Since business unit managers could exist in different industries, it is quite difficult to pick just 10 from LinkedIn. However, we have to start somewhere. If you believe that you ought to be on this list, please write to us and we will certainly consider you for our next article.

             One of the keys in becoming a business unit manager is to be suitably trained. What that means is to have sufficient skills and competencies in any of the areas such as marketing, sales, finance or project management. This leaves a gap in the industry today. We don’t have many leaders who could claim to have done all of the above.

             That is why we have started a program: Certified Business Unit Manager™ to fill this gap in the industry. We would enthusiastically like to present Certified Business Unit Managers at the top of our list. And we’d encourage more and more of you to dream big and join this program. It is not an entitlement but a leadership initiative. 

             And don’t forget to share this with your friends. Let’s go.
