RTMG150 - Retail Organization Fundamentals

 

Students will define the basics of retail management functions, principles and techniques found in today's marketplace. Students will also explore ideal characteristics and responsibilities of an effective department or store manager ranging from legal and safety scenarios to understanding the role and importance of logistics to various retail establishments. Embedded in this study of retail organization fundamentals is a focus on the individual, as a contributor, their roles and responsibilities in the retail environment. While, the organizational structure of a retail store may vary by the size and type of the business, most tasks involved with operating a retail business are similar. Some exceptions that are studied include the reality that small or independent retail stores may combine many sectors together under one division, while larger stores create various divisions for each particular function along with many layers of management. A small specialty shop may have all of its employees under one category called Store Operations. A large department store may have a robust staff consisting of a manager, assistant manager and sales associates for its Sporting Goods department, Home and Garden, Bed and Bath, and each additional department. Students will have the opportunity to explore these variations.
