Retailing has continued to change as the industry innovates, shifts, and pivots with changing shopper, data, technology, and the evolution of the Omni-Channel. The need for retailer-specific training has never been greater. Retailers should not rely solely on their suppliers to make category recommendations and should understand the processes, strategies, data and analytics in order to make the best decisions for their categories.


Our Retail blended, custom training solutions (virtual + classroom + eLearning) help individuals and teams develop category management, strategy and analytic skills that will help them make better decisions at their desks and prepare them for the future.  Programs will help participants to build proficiency in areas like data to insights, analytics, the tactics, presentation skills, strategic thinking and more.
