"According to operating data from various retail organizations, District/Area/Region Manager can influence performance by up to +/- 20%" -
In actual numbers, that means, if you have a district of 10 stores with $1.5 Million average sales each, District Manager's influence is about 6 Million dollars between -20% and +20%.
No responsible retail organization can leave this kind of influence to chance. Apart from hiring (or better yet, promoting from within) great managers, organization has to make sure that they are well equipped with the right tools and training.
This is where
DMSRetail comes in. With our proven, real life experience and record, we are able to get your talent to the point of peak performance, so that your District/Area/Region manager can consistently deliver at the +20% range.
