It is a great precursor to a wider, advanced Category Management program for stakeholders or individuals who contribute to Category Management programs.
This course reviews the role within organizations of purchasing to help participants understand its value contribution and what is needed to unlock it, utilizing key tools that illustrate buyer-seller dynamics. It will help you develop winning category strategies by ensuring those across the business who need to be involved understand, support and actively participate in the Category Management process.
