Category Management Awareness

Our Category Management Awareness module is aimed at procurement team members not involved directly in category management and business stakeholders.

In this module, delegates will understand:

  • How much value category management can bring to an organisation
  • How stakeholders get involved in the cross-functional aspects of category management
  • How the key category management tools impact the category strategy e.g. business requirements, supply market analysis & value levers
  • How category management will impact their functions and teams going forward

On completion of the module, delegates will have an appreciation of how to:

  • Create a category strategy
  • Involve stakeholders in the category management activity
  • Use a variety of category management tools in the process
  • Apply value levers to create strategic options for the category

This 1-part module is delivered over one day.
