This introductory-level course is aimed at stakeholders or individuals who are coming into contact with Category Management programs. It is an ideal supplement to a wider, more advanced Category Management education program and can help to ensure that everyone involved has sufficient understanding to participate.
This course will help you develop winning category strategies by ensuring that those across the business who need to be involved understand, support and actively participate in the Category Management process.
You will be provided with an introduction to 5i® Category Management, exploring the principles of the process and what makes it so successful. The role of purchasing within organizations is also explored to help delegates understand the value that is possible and what is needed to unlock it.
This course provides an introductory-level taster for some of the key tools in Category Management to illustrate buyer/seller dynamics as well as how to implement Sustainable Procurement using Category Management. The agenda for the course is entirely flexible and we can develop alternative approaches to achieve specific organizational objectives or integrate the training to reflect organization specific Category Management processes.
