G. Plan Your Next 3-5 Years
Businesses with a clear retail strategy are the ones that outperform. All retailers know this and yet few deliver on it.
Unfortunately, too many retailers get tied up in the day-to-day running of their businesses and ignore the bigger picture — at their own cost.
That’s where we come in. Our team of experienced retail consultants will help you to formulate a 3-5-year retail strategy with achievable objectives. So how do we do this? We offer:
- A co-ordinated and professional environment in which you can create your vision
- A full retail overview of the market you are in and the competition you face
- A challenging, objective view of the vision and how it can be implemented
- A set of decision-making tools to assist in delivering the right outcome
- The creation of practical and achievable milestones to underline progress
- Tailored cascade material that reinforces the new business objectives
We believe publishing an agreed, referable strategy with concrete milestones for its delivery — and communicating it clearly to everyone involved — is the most important step any retailer can take.
Write into us today to see how we can help.
H. Retail Team Operational Delivery
At Retail Remedy we believe with the right retail teams anything is possible.
Team forming, team building or team coaching, together with objective personal development plans, will support and grow your business.
Personal development plans must be connected to business performance. But it is not unusual for that link to be missing which is why we have developed the Complete Manager Model.
Starting with the purpose of the role and the skills needed to deliver it, we objectively measure where the team or individual are and then build personal capacity into the business.
Our broad and deep methods include:
- Job profiling
- One to one coaching
- Tailored workshops
- Team building events.
To see team growth for operational delivery, write into us today.
