potential issue, then dig deeper to diagnose. Use strategic
KPIs to illuminate issues without analysis paralysis.
Creating clarity amidst chaos begins by asking
" Does this metric guide strategic action? "
We best serve customers and employees by streamlining
what we:
* track
* measure
* analyze
* reward
Any KPI that fails to further key goals only obscures
our highest priorities.
GET BACK TO BASICS BEFORE DIVING
INTO DETAILED METRICS
When focus is renewed on what matters most, fixed
ops leaders can cut through clutter to take purposeful
steps toward achieving strategic objectives.
What could a dealership lose if they focus on customer
service, strategic and planned gross profits, shop efficiencies
related to appointment turn-around time, and
adopting proper capacities for optimized profit efficiencies?
KPIs like hours per repair order and sales per
repair order become diagnostic indicators, instead of
tracked minimum objectives.
Ask yourself this: When your service advisor has a customer
standing in front of them at 9am for an appointment,
what do you want the advisor to think about? Do
you want him thinking about his 8 part pay plan, wondering
how he can get to 2.0 hours per repair order
and feeling emotionally forced to add an item so he
does not have a single line repair order? Or would you
rather he is thinking about taking care of the customer
and keeping them happy while the shop is ensuring
that we address any customer concerns and offering
the customer anything they are due for?
There are very simple methods to get you back to
basics that will also get you picking up the dollars you
have been walking over to pick up the nickels. In-depth
KPIs are ok to bring in, after all of the basics are perfected.
Are your basics perfected?
