BMW Employee Review
High Pressure and Customer orientated
Managing team Managing agencies Managing Purchasing responsibilities with Purchasing team Ensuring budget targets and processes Ensuring delivery of project objectives on time Meetings to communicate strategy and progress of launch project, budget, employee appraisals, project planning, external customers and internal service providers. My co-workers were effective and driven to meet objectives. I enjoyed the "can do" culture. Hardest part of the job was to have limited human resources limiting possible support beyond stretch targets as you can always do more with enough resources. I enjoyed the fast moving pace, the traveling and the ever changing environments of projects for event marketing. I enjoyed seeing customers enjoy an experience. I enjoyed to satisfaction my team members had when they were recognised for their input in important projects. I also enjoyed seeing the bigger picture when across departmental objectives complimented each other perfectly and seamlessly. I learned to make decisions under pressure and to ensure that my teams are taken care of. I also learned that up-front alignment is the most effective way to approach any project.

Extreme pressure to achieve additional stretch targets with very, very short lead time.
Typical Day Dealing with various departments within the various dealerships to ensure optimal customer service and target achievement. Managing the F & I departments to ensure compliance within the legal requirements for that field and target achievement Motivating and coaching deepartment managers. Travel between dealerships in Gauteng and Free State What I learned is that staff are the biggest asset and managers are not always great leaders. Top performers are usually promoted to management positions without necessary training. Workplace culture, is directly affected by the "leadership" of the business. The hardest part of the job was getting managers and leaders to see where they go wrong, The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing dealerships and departments thrive and win national awards
