What competencies and skills do successful managers have? More especially, what skills sets and qualities are required in these types of industries? Retail and manufacturing, like finance, engineering and science have over many decades fine-tuned and designed by a process of elimination and refining, a profile of success. By assessing the great leaders and managers in the generalist field of retail and manufacturing we have been able to create a template of successful people and use this training to showcase the skills required for success here. The fundamentals include a number of case studies and “so what?” scenarios that allow the delegates the opportunity to test and check assumptions. Many of the skills are described in some detail in our Management Assessment Centre
