Category Strategy Implementation

The primary reason to develop category strategies is to achieve results. Developing category strategies is important, ensuring that we implement our strategy is crucial. This training will give you insights and practical tips so you can keep implementation momentum high. Keep cross functional team members and their stakeholders onboard. Deliver results. 

Why this training?

After developing a category strategy, the team moves into implementation. You want the objectives and goals to be achieved. Unfortunately, the tornado of daily priorities can slow down implementation. Team members priorities could change, they drop out or change to another job. Results can be compromised.
