What is Category Management?

Category Management is a process for organising products purchased or sold by an organisation into discrete groups. Each group is then run as a separate area of business with its own strategy and growth monitoring. The category management process is often overseen by a category manager who will devise the category plan along with other staff members, such as a category analysts and category buyers. Category managers are also in charge of product category definition, deciding what defines each category and what products should go into each of them.
