marries up exactly with the book Close More Deals to provide
the scientific evidence you need to understand the sales
department in the context of a dealership as a whole; yet
another world first.

time began, the science of understanding how to load a workshop
effectively has eluded managers, but now the evidence is
here with brand new KPI on Loading Efficiency and Technical
Efficiencies. You now have the power of knowing how to load
your workshop in advance to ensure you clear all the work
to achieve maximum customer satisfaction and also how to
optimise your loading to optimise your profitability. No
more guesswork, all the KPI and supporting evidence is here
Brand New New Concepts:
In addition to that, there's also brand new KPI to properly
assess the skills being deployed at the front of house with
Advisor Efficiency for the Service Department and Estimator
Efficiency for the Bodyshop. Once again, Jeff Smith has
intelligently separated the technical skills of the Technicians
from the selling and technical skills of the people at front
of house you now for the first time you have clarity on
bonus schemes and who is delivering optimum levels of performance.
These new KPI and business
concepts are real game-changers and have been scientifically
proven in the workplace to ensure their authenticity. Jeff
Smith has written them up in his usual style, provided the
evidence and the benchmarks so you get straight to the heart
of the matter in minutes.
The EIGHT major areas of
the automotive business are all covered here including

what each KPI is used for together with a working example
so that you can get the very best results out of your business
Note: Due to the new scientific evidence that has been
uncovered with these new KPI and their working practices,
it means adjustments have been made to other benchmarks
and baselines and therefore this Third Edition makes the
First and Second Editions officially outdated, obsolete
and we can no longer support them.

Quick Glance At The Differences Between The Editions?
At first glance, the book covers
look exactly the same apart from those two words "Third
Edition" on the front cover. It's also exactly the
same height and the same width, but the spine is quite a
bit thicker because it has 144 more pages than the first
edition therefore it's a little heavier too.
The page size, the font and
the font sizes and are all the same which confirms that
this new book is not marketing hype or a simple upgrade,
but rather that the additional 144 pages are crammed full
with even more valuable information about understanding
Perhaps more importantly, the
page layout remains the same with the page title, the formula,
the benchmarks following the same trusted page layout which
lead to the success of the first edition. The big difference
is that you have all the brand new, cutting-edge KPI and
business concepts, all of the new and adjusted benchmarks
and baselines and all of the the very latest up-to-date
information to keep you and your business ahead of the game.
