The delivery of the content and the use of examples and and scenarios was exceptional. I would definitely recommend this session to others within my company. You can consider me a “delighted customer”. R. S. Head of Retail, Digicel

“Once again, thank you for the training, I appreciate the learning I got from this workshop and look forward in pursuing other training sessions you might offer.” A. A. B – Retail Strategy Consultant – Value Retail PLC

“I recommend “The Retail Operations Management Workshop” very highly to others; as long as they are not the competition” A. H. – Sales Manager – Harvey Nichols

“The DMSRetail Operations Management Workshop is a complete tool which would assist a retailer achieve the critical success factor essential to position your company above the competitive clutter and serve your customers better.” R. V. – Brand Manager – Sun & Sand Sports LLC

Now, let us divulge another compelling reason to register for The Retail Operations Management Workshop…

Retail Leadership Traits and Performance Management for Growth…

If you are looking for a strategy – perhaps, an organizational development strategy – to help you to find the edge; the knowledge that will propel you and your business to greater success.

“The Retail Operations Management Workshop” delves into critical strategy development in a way that just makes sense regardless of what stage you are at.

The content for this portion of the workshop was developed by the President of a very successful company.

He, and the key players in his organization developed an amazing blueprint for success.

Everyday some companies enjoy the benefits of having an Effective (i.e. Working…) “People Development and Organizational Strategy” in place.

All of the employees in the organization know their part; they understand exactly what is expected of them and they deliver.

Wow, just think of what that means in today’s “Digitally Transformed” and “Highly Demanding” customer environment.

It does sound a bit too good to be true, we grant you that.

So, then, maybe there is more to it – perhaps it is not as simple as it sounds.

Without question, it takes work – something most of us are not afraid of particularly when the rewards for that work are so great.

But what it really takes is know-how.

The know-how is delivered at “The Retail Operations Management Workshop”.

When the blueprint is followed the work is being done en route to the final destination where the business flourishes and your key players are at peak performance and both the business and the employees reap the rewards resulting from stellar performance.

If you want to have a first class business, it’s not enough to have a few star players that put on a great show when they’re around – you have to have every player put on a great show every time they’re on stage – or acting on behalf of your company – every time they interact with one of your customers.

Certainly you will have some ‘top guns’ as any organization would. But why not have more ‘top guns’?

Why not have everyone become as close to a ‘top gun’ as they possibly can?

“You are not effective if you dazzle some of the people some of the time.

You need to dazzle all of the people all of the time.”

It’s been said that an organization is only as good as its weakest link. That is a fact.

Conduct a study of companies whose reputation was destroyed or, at least, degraded by poor performers – or weak links – and you’ll be surprised at how many you find.

In retail, or any business for that matter, even having one customer subjected to the weak link in your organization, or to your resident under achiever, should be avoided at all cost.

You simply cannot afford to have bad encounters with customers.

But how do you avoid that? It’s a daunting task, isn’t it?

At “The Retail Operations Management Workshop” we will walk participants through the blueprint for success that is the Personal Development and Organizational Strategy.

Proven techniques that are discussed at “The Retail Operations Management Workshop”, have resulted in 30% increase of revenues in 2 consecutive years putting the annual sales of this one company to over $100M.

The Focus on Sales

Did you know that there are people working in sales organizations – chains of retail stores to be exact – that do not truly understand what a sales focus is?

They talk about sales, and report it and forecast it and certainly lament the lack of it – but they most definitely do not understand it.

Mainly because they don’t “Get” the underlying relationship between “Sales” and “Customers”.

You will leave with a full and complete understanding of what steps you can take to ensure that everyone working in your organization – those above, those below and everyone in between – clearly understands the equation for mastering the performance mentality and a true sales focus.

Sales Management

Praise for “The Retail Operations Management Workshop”

“Again I would like to thank DMSRetail team for the precious time we had, it was really one of the best fruitful workshops I have ever attended.” J. A. – Retail Operations Manager – Bestseller

“I rated this workshop as “Excellent (5 out of 5)” because it helped me implement performance management in my retail operation with excellent results.” B. R. – Managing Partner – Avenue Trading LLC

“Thanks for a wonderful Workshop, it has been time well invested. The work experience Instructors shared with us throughout the Workshop was enriching and endorsed the quality of the teachings as well as its credibility.” C. D. – Operations Manager – Farmacias Los Hidalgos

“The Retail Operations Management Workshop has provided me with many very helpful ideas on how to run a successful retail operation. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be successful in retail.” M. T. – Owner, CEO – Eagle Leather

“Very illuminating…Thought Provoking…Very Challenging.” A. L. B. – CEO – Above & Beyond

The Sales Management portion of The Retail Sales/Operations Management Workshop is not for the faint of heart.

It is a hard hitting, call it like it is, real life session that details how Managers and Business Owners in a sales organization must behave and must do if the organization, and all of the people in it, are to be successful.

If you want performance, you’ll get the “Formula” for how to get it.

Retail Math, Retail Metrics, KPI’s, Retail Balanced Scorecards and Retail Artificial Intelligence…

Until you explore new and different things, well you just don’t know what you don’t know.

Retail is an old business model, but…how you manage your retail business in 21st century is new and different and exciting….particularly when you discover things you didn’t know existed.

Which brings us to Retail Artificial Intelligence and what it can do for your organization. (Some call it Machine Learning/Predictive Analytics/Big Data, etc.)

The use of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and, specifically, predictive analytics is still in quite limited use in retail organizations.

Artificial Intelligence is a phrase that may not even resonate with retailers – they’re thinking “what is it anyway?”.

For that reason, many retailers still shy away from it. But those days are gone.

Artificial Intelligence must be discovered, understood and embraced by retailers.

There are many ways that AI can help your business succeed. It’s not rocket science.

Well, actually, to be fair to the people who come up with the algorithms, they probably are rocket scientists or something similar…but the users certainly don’t need to be.

In fact, the concepts behind AI can be understood very easily and the value of it is undeniable.

At the Retail Operations Management Workshop you’ll hear examples that will astound you.

You’ll hear about millions of dollars in savings being realized on one marketing campaign and much, much more.

Definitely some AHA!! moments in this portion of the program!

The problem, until now, is that AI companies often fail in their attempts to deliver the information to the retailer.

The outcome is that retailers continue to shun this technology.

This is truly a mistake. AI has a huge role to play in any retail business – the extent to which each retailer must decide. But, first, education is in order.

As with any other tool we seek to help us develop our business, we have to know where to find credible information in order to become educated on the use, features and benefits of that tool; we must make it our business to understand what, if anything, it can do for us – this may mean countless hours of study and fact finding – and then determine whether or not we want to put that tool to work for us.

There is no better place for a retail manager to receive this education and understanding quickly and completely than “The Retail Operations Management Workshop”.

Retail DashboardsThe Artificial Intelligence presentation is geared to the workshop attendees – Retail professionals.

It is naturally assumed that the attendees are not IT professionals.

Part of that statement warrants repeating because it’s so important, so…

The AI presentation is geared to the workshop attendees.

No one can impart this knowledge, to retail professionals, the way DMSRetail can.

So, rest assured that you will take away an excellent understanding of Artificial Intelligence and how you can take advantage of it to lift your retail business to new heights, if you so desire.

You should know that the Presenters for Artificial Intelligence are also extremely well qualified and have many years of experience and top knowledge in the following areas (Which means they can ANSWER your questions):
