Understanding Retailer Strategy and Category Management 1
(Skill Development Program)
This accredited program develops proficiency in the foundations of category management - including the process and strategy - from a retailer perspective.
3 Courses Included: Category Management Overview; Retailer Strategy; Retailer Strategy in the Convenience Channel.
Time Required: Approximately 5 hours
Understanding the foundations of category managements is critical to anyone who touches retail. Without the big picture perspective, it's difficult to understand the role that you play within it and how to create the best solutions.
Your program starts with understanding the category management process, including details about each step. You will also learn that not all category management is the same, and will be introduced to a category management continuum to help you understand where you, your categories and your retailers / manufacturers are within the continuum.
Once you've learned about the overall category management process, you will focus on the overarching strategies that retailers should incorporate into their category management foundations. You will have the opportunity to articulate your internal retail strategies or those of one of your retail customers, identifying areas where there may be gaps in strategy or in your understanding that you should further investigate.
