We find that, of the six management practice areas surveyed, the most important is “commercial awareness,” where abler managers achieve up to 13.9% higher sales per worker. We find that many stores have poor managers on this indicator. However, the company is careful to incentivize managers, operating a scheme giving shares (approximately 20%) in both positive and negative deviations of actual sales from expected. Abler managers do not receive higher pay, implying that their skills are company specific.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Zubanov, Nikolay</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Zubanov, Nikolay</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Siebert, W.
