  • Organisations receive accreditation from the Global Retail Academy, leading to the Black Belt in Retail

Three leading retail companies have successfully completed the Green Belt in Retail program initiated by 3W Consulting, Sri Lanka’s leading Enterprise Renewal and Management Consultants. 



Hameedia, Whittall Boustead Ltd. and Super Colloid Lanka Ltd. successfully achieved the international Green Belt in Retail after participating in the introductory Retail Mastery Program followed by the completion of a written assignment with practical solutions to implement inside their own organisation.  

The program is part of the lead up to the Black Belt in Retail accreditation offered by 3W Consulting and the Global Retail Academy (GRA). It was initially introduced to Sri Lanka in February 2017, conducted by the founders of the GRA – Prakash Menon and Andrew Cavangh, with the aim of driving thought leadership and top retail talent in Sri Lanka. It served as an initiative to encourage and advance knowledge, skills, practices and innovation among the professionals of the Retail industry, thereby leading to a prominent boost in the entire retail sector.

The Black Belt in Retail qualification adopts a strategic and systematic flow in terms of teaching retailers bets practice kills and expert knowledge to master the complex retail process in the 21st century. The topics covered under the Green Belt in Retail level included retail strategy, planning and metrics, resource productivity in stock space and staff, merchandise planning, financial analysis and contextualising data. The program was recognised by top leading Sri Lanka retailers in the country where they participated at the introductory launch session. These organisations included Jaykay Marketing (Keells Super), Dialog Axiata PLC, Singer Sri Lanka, Hemas Holdings, Phoenix Industries, Dilmah, Dipped Products, Avirate, Richard Peiris and Cool Planet.

Commenting on the success of the programme, Stefan Moraes, the MD and founder of 3W Consulting stated: “The affiliation with the Global Retail Academy was an initiative we are honoured to be a part of as it set the course for upgrading and upskilling the standards of the retail industry in the country. We hope that the rest of the organisations too will reach the Green Belt stage and thereby work towards achieving the Global Black Belt in Retail accreditation.”
