Conway, Arkansas – Management Success held its annual Top 20 Meeting for collision shops May 18-21 at A&J Collision Repair, an 18,000 sf auto body repair shop located approximately 30 miles north of Little Rock.
Throughout the course of the three-day weekend, collision shop owners, their spouses, parts vendors and Management Success staff members addressed hot trade topics such as scanning, DRPs and employee management. They shared best practices and learned new, innovative tools to help implement organization and increase efficiency.
The event kicked off on Thursday with a visit to an O-Reilly distribution center. Management Success shop owners studied organization flows and SOPs on employee management. On Friday, prior to attending a seminar on leadership and communication, the collision team toured a Snap-On Tools facility where they observed research projects and learned about newly introduced equipment in auto body repair.
After returning to A&J Collision Repair on Saturday morning, Management Success consultant, Wenceslao Severi, presented an interactive workshop on Mapping Success. The meeting concluded the following day and all attendees left with a clear understanding of both their short-term and long-term goals, and a developed action plan for immediate implementation.
With a total attendance of more than 30 people and 15 shops, collectively totaling a gross profit of $25 million dollars in 2016, the Management Success Top 20 Collision Meeting was a huge success. The group will meet again at the Management Success Fall Convention in Pomona, California September 22-24, 2017.
Management Success Top 20 Groups are committees of shop owners in mechanical, collision and heavy duty truck repair. Membership is by nomination only and the groups are comprised of shop owners who have been recognized by their peers for exemplary management skills.
