NCM 20 Groups

The hallmarks of an NCM 20 Group, a peer learning concept, hold true today as they did in 1947, when we founded it: have open and honest conversations about your operations using data, share strategies and best practices with non-competing peers, and hold one another accountable for success. From dealer 20 Groups to non-automotive performance 20 Groups, our criteria will ensure you're matched to the right group.
