What You’ll Learn:

Why the success of your retail operation depends on your ability to determine, and accurately measure, your Key Performance Indicators. Measurement of important metrics and determining the key performance indicators is one of the most important activities for a retail manager at store/district/region/company level. Failure to identify your most important metrics can be fatal to your business.

Retail Math, Metrics and KPI terminology and definitions.

Commonly used formulas. Also, how, and why you should be using GMROII, GMROF and GMROL.

What to measure, how to measure and how to interpret the results. Once you determine what and how to measure, you have to know how to correctly interpret the results. This is where many retail businesses go wrong…incorrect interpretation of their results, which leads them down the wrong path.

What action to take based on the results.
Knowing what to do with your results is key to making continuous improvement. Don’t be mislead. Learn how to drill down and come up with the winning answers so you can be certain that what you’re measuring is going to lead you to higher success in your retail operation.

Overview and examples of Open to Buy, Sell-thru and Store Operating Statements.

How to create and implement Balanced Score Cards at any level in your retail operation. Balanced Score Cards are used to summarize your most important KPI’s on one page – right at your fingertips – while considering all angles of your retail operation: Financial, Customer, Processes and Growth & Development.

The key, here, is that you choose the KPI’s that will be reflected on the Balanced Score Cards for your particular business…it’s definitely not one size fits all…your KPI’s have to be specifically tailored to your business. And, we show you how to do that.

The use of Balanced Score Cards gives your operations people a solid, easy to use platform for managing the business, through performance manage ment and accountability. It all comes down to one very important number.
