  • [Whitepaper] How District Managers Turn Corporate Strategy into Reality[Whitepaper] How District Managers Turn Corporate Strategy into Reality
    For  organizations with distributed stores, District Managers play a vital role, serving as the all-important intermediary between corporate offices and individual stores or branches. Engaged, empowered District Managers can be a critical asset to an organization.

    Future Stores teamed up with Square Root on a new benchmark report that uncovers the biggest challenges District Managers are facing. The report includes proprietary data from surveys of more than 900 District Managers, interviews with influential corporate leaders, and actionable insights.
