One of the signs of a well run shop is that no one looks stressed or hurried. How is this magic created? By operational excellence. Is your shop or a customer's shop a great example of operational excellence with efficient procedures, great staff communication and with a system and culture everyone buys into? Then we want to hear from you. Nominate now!
Peter McMahon, General Manager at award sponsor Car Craft Group said: "At the Car Craft Group we have been proud to support the awards over the past few years, it is the industry's night of nights and the awards are not easily won. Sam and Neil put the nominees through some pretty stringent criteria before the winners are decided which makes the awards more prestigious.
"The Operational Excellence Award is something that Car Craft strongly believes in. Many shop owners pour their heart and soul into their businesses, investing long hours and implementing constant improvements. Challenges present themselves unexpectedly, and it is how these challenges and improvements are addressed and managed by not only the owners but the team that stands behind them that creates the texcellence I think we all strive for," he said.
