Throughout the course of the three-day weekend, collision shop owners, their spouses, parts vendors and Management Success staff members addressed hot trade topics such as scanning, DRPs and employee management. They shared best practices and learned new, innovative tools to help implement organization and increase efficiency.
The event kicked off on May 18 with a visit to an O-Reilly distribution center. Management Success shop owners studied organization flows and SOPs on employee management. On May 19, prior to attending a seminar on leadership and communication, the collision team toured a Snap-On Tools facility where they observed research projects and learned about newly introduced equipment in auto body repair.
After returning to A&J Collision Repair the morning of May 20, Management Success consultant, Wenceslao Severi, presented an interactive workshop on Mapping Success. The meeting concurred the following day and all attendees left with a clear understanding of both their short-term and long-term goals, and a developed an action plan for immediate implementation.
With a total attendance of more than 30 people and 15 shops, collectively totaling a gross profit of $25 million dollars in 2016, the Management Success Top 20 Collision Meeting was a huge success. The group will meet again at the Management Success Fall Convention, in Pomona, California September 22-24, 2017.
Management Success Top 20 Groups are committees of shop owners in mechanical, collision and heavy duty truck repair. Membership is by nomination only and the groups are comprised of shop owners who have been recognized by their peers for exemplary management skills.
