One of the problems with being in management is that some people are thrown in at the deep end. Company reports are not properly explained and they often feel uncomfortable and lack confidence because they don’t understand some of the figures. There’s no one to ask for advice or help, or when they do get advice it’s often confusing.

Learning on the job by trial and error can take years for someone to reach their full potential and their journey to success takes far too long, it’s painful and it’s costly for the company and the people concerned. Thank goodness, it doesn’t have to be that way.

“We are extremely proud to be associated with a Guru as distinguished as Jeff Smith providing a platform for consistent improvement of Bodyshop performance to our customers in the Middle East and North Africa.”

As a leader in our market, we strive hard to deliver consistent products as well as Technical and Management training. The Jeff Smith Bodyshop Management Masterclass is the best programme available world-wide and it ensures that management training meets our customer expectations in elevating Bodyshop capabilities to stay profitable and build a much stronger future.

We are also extremely proud to sponsor this event for non-Axalta customers too because we know the true power of this programme and we believe everyone should have access to it, regardless of who they are and who they work for; it’s invaluable.”

Fadi Medlej -Managing Director, Axalta Middle East

Masterclass Overview

The Bodyshop is rammed with an abundance of information and jargon, you’ve probably met people who throw words into a conversation like “efficiency” without giving much thought to what it really means. For instance, you can ask 10 different people for the meaning of KPI such as Overall Efficiency, Productivity, Utilisation, Technical Efficiency and Loading Efficiency you’ll probably get 10 different answers on each one and the odds are that none of them are correct. It’s a frustrating subject with a real lack of clarity and true understanding.

This masterclass is where everything comes together in one place, you gain pure clarity and a complete understanding of everything to do with the financial reports and every single key performance indicator within the entire Bodyshop; we leave no stones unturned.

Here’s an overview of what you’ll cover: 

• Management Accounts Made Easy – A complete understanding of financial information and terminology
• Understanding the financial information of the Bodyshop
• How to improve operational performance in the Bodyshop
• Understanding all Bodyshop KPI – Which ones to use to guarantee your success
• Understanding Benchmarks and Baselines and how to measure yourself properly against them
• How to accurately measure Bodyshop operational performance
• Structuring your Daily Operating Controls (DOC)
• How to prioritise your actions to gain the best results in the fastest possible time
• Explanation of every KPI – The good, the bad and the ugly
• Understanding the 6 most important Bodyshop KPI that are critical for your success
• Identifying the KPI to avoid so you prevent yourself from wasting your valuable time and energy
• Understanding the relationships between KPI and how they’re linked together in your performance (Very Important)
• Jeff Smith’s Laws of the Bodyshop together with the diagrams, Benchmarks and Baselines
• Using Bodyshop case studies to demonstrate and understand how your actions change the financial information
• How to select the correct KPI to match your specific objectives
• Understanding how the “The Top Achievers” achieve their success
• How to accurately measure the efficiency of Technicians
• How to measure the skills of the Estimators
• Understanding and measuring Workshop Loading
• Accurate analysis of the gap between actual and targeted performance and what to do about it
• How to focus on what matters most to your success
• How to increase Bodyshop profitability without destroying customer satisfaction
• Ensure staff buy-in to your plans and create a culture of continuous performance improvement
• How to make measurement about transformation and not about beating people with a stick

As you can see, there’s a huge amount of information to cover here and to assist you with some accelerated learning, this masterclass is designed around practical techniques and templates, real-life case studies where we give you time to practise what you learn and to discuss what is most relevant to you and how you might put these lessons into practice in your workplace.

Who Should Attend This Masterclass?

The programme is designed for people who want to gain more clarity and confidence on financial information and KPI to develop best practice and operational performance improvement in the Bodyshop. If you understand some of your KPI and financial information, but not all of it and you want to banish all doubts, this masterclass is for you.

 

Bodyshop Management MasterclassThe Power of Networking Should Never Be Underestimated When You’re Here It doesn’t matter if you’re working in a large franchised dealership or a small independent Bodyshop, you’ll be working with the latest cutting-edge information to develop your business and sharing your best practice ideas with each other. Jeff Smith is the master of managing a group of people with mixed abilities and objectives so you all learn together without feeling lost or out of your depth. You’ll be meeting and networking with people from other businesses that you wouldn’t normally meet, these encounters are often invaluable, especially over dinner at the end of the day.

You’ll be in a small and select group of people where you’ll be made most welcome and your every need will be catered for, regardless of your experience. Is this masterclass challenging? Oh Yes! This is where you’re going to dig deep, move outside of your comfort zone and squeeze every last drop of juice out of each KPI to ensure you’re well armed for optimising your performance. We want you to gain the absolute maximum you can while you’re here and that’s why we limit the group to an absolute maximum of 12 delegates so you get one-to-one support from Jeff whenever you need it.

This Masterclass Is Highly Recommended For:

• Existing Bodyshop Managers with all levels of experience from newly promoted to a 20-year veteran

• Aspiring Bodyshop Managers who want the right training for a properly structured career path

• OEM Field Teams who want to add real value when they visit their customers

• Teams or individuals with performance measurement responsibility of the Bodyshop

• People who are part of a strategic planning team who are seeking the best practical ideas for improving performance

•Budget analysts who need performance information to formulate budgets and evaluation

Will This Masterclass Be In Conflict With
Any Other Training I’ve Done?

No, Absolutely not, in fact it will support and strengthen anything you’ve done before.
One of the problems is that not everyone knows that KPI benchmarks and baselines are not random numbers, you can’t just make them up, or pluck them out of thin air, they’re wholly dependent upon science. However, some reports don’t apply this science and because of this, in any given month, you might hit some targets but not others because the connections have not been realised. Also some budgets don’t show the connections between the relevant KPI which means that improving your operational performance and hitting your targets on a consistent basis is never going happen and you’ll be held back.

 

To combat any confusion, Jeff Smith is revealing the secrets, the science and the evidence behind all KPI benchmarks and baselines so you know how they are created and where the information comes from.

Perhaps more importantly, he’ll also show you how certain KPI are linked together and how they are interdependent upon each other to create harmony and synergy in your Bodyshop so you achieve consistent results on an ongoing basis. You’ll come away with the knowledge and evidence to question everything in your Bodyshop to make sure your strategic vision is correct and achievable every single month.

You’ll also be armed with sufficient clarity to explain everything to your team so they buy into you strategy and make change happen. Rest assured, nothing is random and your performance improvement is not left to chance. Once you know the embedded secrets behind the most important KPI, the frustration of hitting some targets and not others will be a thing of the past.
