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. Jeff recognises what happens in the real world and eliminates all of those problems to create a whole new world of clarity, vision and self confidence. He puts you at ease in a comfortable environment while he explains financial information and the most critical key performance indicators in jargon-busting plain English that everyone understands making it easy for you to fast-track your career to the next stage.
When you’re in possession of the correct tools, the correct KPI and you know how to execute everything in the most effective way, you’ll create a whole new world for yourself where you win more customers, increase sales and make more profit
“More speed in the wrong direction doesn’t help”
The Service Department is filled with an abundance of information and jargon that’s often confusing. You’ve probably met people who throw words into a conversation like “Efficiency“, “Absorption” and “Resorption” without giving much thought to what those terms really mean. At some point in your career, you’ve probably asked for an explanation of a KPI such as Efficiency, Technical Efficiency and Loading Efficiency and you’ve probably got a variety of answers on each one, right? It’s a frustrating subject with a real lack of clarity and true understanding which can often hold back your career.
This Service Manager Masterclass is where Jeff Smith brings everything together in one place and sorts everything out once and for all to ensure you’re in control of your destiny.
You gain pure clarity and a complete understanding of everything to do with the financial reports and every single key performance indicator within the entirety of the Service Department.
You’ll be using The Pyramids of Power and dynamic case studies to reveal exactly that the top achievers are doing so you can apply the best techniques into your business and he leaves no stones unturned; you get everything!

The 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 workshop, you’ll be working with the latest cutting-edge information to develop your business and sharing your best practice ideas with each other.
Jeff 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.

- 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.
Rest assured, you’re receiving the the very latest information and Best Practice solutions to ensure you don’t fall victim to other people’s lack of knowledge and you can work on delivering high levels of success on a consistent basis.
You’ll be the recognised master of your performance reviews and
others will seek your expertise and advice
To combat any misunderstandings and to provide you with absolute clarity, Jeff 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 Service Department so you achieve consistent results on an ongoing basis.
You’ll come away with the knowledge and evidence to question everything in the Service Department 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.
