    What are the common traits that allow some Automotive General Managers to stand out among their peers? Those that do stand out…what makes them tick?

    Jeff Sacks, for many years, has conducted a well-known and respected training session, specifically focused on the role of the dealership General Manager. Through this and other professional experiences, he has interacted with thousands of dealership GMs.

    Jeff is taking all this insight and perspective and will visit with us to discuss just what makes General Managers…well…Exceptional…the best of the best. So join us for this workshop and learn either what you need to do to join the ranks of the Exceptional… or maybe what to look for in prospective GMs or GMs-in-training.

    You will learn:

    What the best GMs do every day to stay on top
    How to successfully get your team to embrace your vision
    How to transition your efforts from doing to delegating

    How to make the Parts DMS inventory Jive with the General Ledger!

    It's no secret that when it comes to the Parts Department, the dealership runs two sets of books.

    One set is kept and controlled by the Parts Manager and is geared toward inventory management… keeping the right parts on the shelves to satisfy the Service Department's needs and avoiding obsolescence. It's mostly about the physical parts themselves.
    The other set of books is kept and controlled by Accounting. The General Ledger is the financial blueprint for the enterprise, but in this instance it is primarily concerned with the dollar value of the parts department's assets and liabilities. It is mostly about the dollar value of the investment.

    Problem: On the surface they seldom agree.

    And sometimes, the imbalance can point to very real problems and potential losses. Therefore, like balancing your checkbook, you need to isolate the differences and reconcile regularly.

    This workshop is an in-depth look at strategies to help balance the 2 sets of books, and/or identify problems needing solutions.

    You will learn:
    Primary causes for inventory valuation disputes between Parts and Accounting
    Strategies for identifying and "balancing" reasonable and routine differences
    How the 2 sets of books can help hide serious problems and potential losses
    Solutions for inventory shortages and overages.
    How Parts & Accounting can work together to balance the 2 sets of books Learn More

    The time and money you spend on installing, training and hiring is often wasted, if you have neglected the absolute need to get all stake holders on board.

    The secret of getting your BDC initiatives to work effectively is getting all the working pieces organized toward the common goal… all joined together to provide the customer with the best, more efficient and productive process possible.

    This cannot happen when individual stakeholders (individuals or even departments) do not respect the role others contribute to the teams success.

    Breaking down the wall between BDC & Sales
    Blending all departments & owning the customer’s household auto needs
