The Program in Brief

Here's a quick introduction to this Solomon Coyle education program endorsed by Steelcase Channel Development:

What is the program about?

Solomon Coyle’s Dealer Management Development Program (DMD) program explores the evolving complexity of the dealer business amid today’s environment of change and disruption. The course offers an antidote to this complexity through content grounded in 5 key factors for dealer success: Strategic Planning and Execution, Well-Defined Business Model, Strong Financial Position, Superb Selling Organization, and Operational Excellence.

Why should you be interested?

DMD is a deep, cross-functional look at how the dealer business functions and makes money. By stimulating end-to-end awareness of the quote-to-invoice process, DMD better equips participants to control costs, protect margins, and promote commitment throughout the dealership to high performance and market relevance.

Who is the target audience?

DMD is for management-level individuals who are leading — or preparing to lead — critical aspects of the dealer business. Principals and functional managers alike will find it appropriate to their level of responsibility and professional experience as well as beneficial to their business role.

When is it being offered?

Online classes lasting 60–90 minutes each will run every other week from September 19, 2018, to September 18, 2019. The classes will be recorded for later reference on demand. There are three breaks in the program schedule for ease of planning.

How much time and money will you invest?

Student preparation for each biweekly class is estimated at 60–90 minutes. The all-inclusive fee of $7,500 covers instruction (25 online sessions), course materials (learning guides, tools, templates), and two personal assessments done through Assessments Technology Group, a leader in science-based ability assessments and development tools. The first assessment establishes a baseline at the outset of the program. The second, at the end of the program, evaluates key indicators of future success in applying important lessons and best practices covered in the DMD curriculum.
