We have shot scenarios of delegating in IT dealing with leading cross-functional teams. We did a model on improving below standard performance in the DC relating to scans per day percentage. Last night we shot a scenario dealing with how to influence other internal partners. There was great chemistry and a terrific realism all three nights.

Do these sound like situations your merchants and support leaders face regularly?  Tweet us @mohrretAil or share a comment here. Thanks for reading!
