Category Management talent development for Retailers connects 2 interrelated components that drive results —

Internal and External Collaboration

Data, technology and tools are only half of the equation for retailers competing for increasingly sophisticated shoppers.

People are the key to success at every level.

Retail training in category management helps you attract and retain well-prepared, strategic thinkers that can collaborate, create insights, and develop best practices to meet your strategic goals. Our programs and courses can help identify knowledge gaps through assessments, create alignment across your team, build skills to help your retail team better meet the day-to-day and strategic goals of your organization, and even help your team prepare for certification with the CMA.

Highly-skilled individuals in the retail industry seek growth and development challenges, which means if people don’t see opportunity for their future, they will seek out new and better opportunities — perhaps at your competition. 

We are committed to helping you develop your team through the best online retail catman training in the industry plus *NEW* bi-monthly skill-building virtual training on topics suggested by our students and clients.
