  • Management Minute for The Collision Repair Professional 8/2/2018

    Jeff Peevy, AMAM The new driver of competitive advantage is the speed in which an individual or organization can learn. Learning equals the ability to adapt and adaptability in today's business environment equals competitive advantage. Now more than ever, hiring someone for their willingness and capacity to learn may be more important than knowledge and experience. For us "more seasoned" professionals that can sting a little, but when we have knowledge, experience AND willingness to learn we have the strongest combination. My friend Mike Jones of Discover Leadership encourages us all to "play like a rookie" and that truly is great advice! A natural thirst to learn is the key to staying relevant. By the way, if you are going to the Collision Industry Conference or NACE/Automechanika, let me know, I would love to say hello

    Jeff Peevy, AMAM Profitability - the Oxford Dictionary says it is the, "degree to which a business or activity yields profit or financial gain." In our industry, profitability isn't always easy. There is often a fine line between profit and loss. However, profitability is commonly referred to as some mysterious thing that you either find or you don't. Truth is, it's not easy, but it isn't magic available only to a few. Profitability comes by doing a few key things well and knowing how you are doing along they way and making the necessary adjustments. Jeremy O'Neal provided AMi with a great course on the topic.

    Jeff Peevy, AMAM Are you leading the learning movement? Our industry has often focused more on the act of training than on the act of learning. The two are not automatically tied together. I am suggesting we need to be leading a movement to put learning, its meaning and impact on the forefront of our industry's mind. If you are an AMi professional designation holder, we encourage you to be a visible leader in this movement. It starts, at a minimum, by maintaining an active designation status by obtaining six credit hours of AMi-approved education each calendar year (see below for more details). It continues by encouraging those in our industry to learn and grow. Don't be a defender of the status quo. As the Eric Hoffer quote states, "In times of change, learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exist."
