Category management (CatMan) is a process that drives strategy for organizations and its foundations create the basis for important space planning considerations.  Space planners need to go beyond mastering the software and think about the strategic implications in the work they do to go beyond a pretty picture. The need for CatMan training for space planners has never been greater.

 

Space Management training helps individuals and teams focused on Space Planning develop their skills and strategy that align with and go beyond industry standards. Participants should expect to build proficiency across data, analytics, the tactics, presentation skills, strategic thinking and more.
