Does this describe your business?

Scenario 1: You are not often invited into a category process

Opportunity: You are a niche supplier is a large category (the area you operate in is growing disproportionately), you are asked to get involved in a range review.

Issue: The knowledge, skills and capabilities required are not available in the business.

Scenario 2: Business growth requires category skills

Opportunity: You know that you can enhance your business by having category based thinking of key points.

Issue: There is not a requirement for a full-time category management resource.

Scenario 3: The whole market is undeveloped

Opportunity: The need for category-based skills is emerging and category thinking within the local market is developing.

Issue: The market might be too small to warrant the permanent cost of a category resource.
