Category Definition & Segmentation

Course Overview

Participants learn to define a category from the shopper’s point of view and understand how category definition affects how the category is merchandised, priced, and promoted. Once the category is defined, it needs to be segmented based on a consumer decision tree. This sets up the category for effective analysis based on how the shopper shops the category. Key steps and varying methods are explored in completing these steps of the Category Management process.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain why defining and segmenting the categories is a key step in the "Retailer Strategy" piece of category management;
  • Give examples of ways that a category can be defined based on different retailer strategies; and
  • Identify the steps to properly segment a category.
