Successful retail management is a constant struggle for control over time. Without a good system, managers are at the mercy of external events, and things fall through the cracks day-after-day. The things that don’t get done are often the things that are most important to the business, like staff recruiting, new hire training, and team development. When these things don’t happen, it causes heavier reliance on the manager, and that makes the manager’s struggle over time even worse. It becomes an ever-devolving cycle that hurts the business, the manager, and all members of the team. And with new technology increasing the pace of communication and companies looking for more ways to streamline resources, the problem will continue to grow into the foreseeable future.
