Category Management

Business and Category Alignment

A pre-requisite to successful category management is the cross functional alignment of objectives. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if you gained traction for category management from the start and people stayed onboard during the implementation too? The Joshi Alignment Model®© will help Procurement be well equipped to generate understanding and commitment for the efforts and outcomes of category management. How? By giving you a practical approach to align the business objectives to categories. Also, selling category management with enthusiasm and excitement so colleagues want to come on board. You will avoid the aggravation that stems from lack of alignment and follow through. 

Why this training?

Do your stakeholders say they are too busy and have no or little time and resources? Even though you are sure that there is value for everyone, still onboarding and commitment is a big challenge. Professionals are rightly committed to their objectives and priorities and connecting these to category management makes the alignment magic happens.  The Joshi Alignment Model®© will help you make category management the magnet to onboard cross functional participation with alignment of expectations, efforts and results. This approach will definitely have value for everyone.
