The Wal-Mart Way Master Class is based on Michael Bergdahl’s first hand experiences working at the Wal-Mart Headquarters directly with Sam Walton. Bergdahl documented what he learned at Wal-Mart in his book, What I learned from Sam Walton: How to Compete & Thrive in a Wal-Mart World.
Based on his first book, What I learned from Sam Walton, Michael Bergdahl will discuss “The Wal-Mart Way” through a discussion of the 7 key strategies of Wal-Mart. Bergdahl will follow the acronym, “POCKETS” which stands for Price, Operations, Culture, Key Item Promotion, Expenses, Talent and Service. He will explain the key to each of Wal-Mart’s Strategies and it’s Best Practices that have made it the World’s Largest Company. He will discuss Strategies that audience members can take from “The Wal-Mart Way” to make their businesses even more successful.
This will be followed by a book signing the next day. Michael Bergdahl will be present to sign both the books written by him.
