Economic Value to Customer (EVC) Immersive Case Study

Kyle T. WestraTuesday & Wednesday October 20-21, 2020

Kyle T. Westra
Manager, Wiglaf Pricing

Economic Value to Customer (EVC) is an important quantitative pricing methodology for any pricing professional. Whether estimating
the value of a new product during development, determining the launch price for go-to-market, adjusting your model for existing products, or examining new ways to segment your customers, EVC should be in your toolbox.

In this session, we will go through an in-depth, immersive case study to give participants the full experience of building an EVC model from scratch. This is ideal for those with roles touching pricing analysis, product management, product development, marketing, and innovation.

• How to use product and customer information to create a value-based, quantitative pricing model
• How to communicate EVC findings into insights for list prices, customer segmentation, and customer value
• How to update and further refine an existing model with new information

Quantitative Communication

Nathan L. PhippsTuesday & Wednesday October 27-28, 2020

Nathan L. Phipps
Consultant, Wiglaf Pricing

Pricing projects invariably involve quantitative analysis on some level. For that analysis to be valuable, stakeholders must understand why it matters and how it could impact decision-making. Fundamentally, executing a quantitative analysis and communicating that analysis to stakeholders requires two different skillsets.

The goal of pricing analysis is not to bombard your audience with data visualizations. Rather, the goal is to provide context and facilitate management conversations to drive pricing decisions.

This session will teach attendees how to effectively adjust their communication approach for maximum impact.

• How to create 3 pricing analysis tools using Excel: the pocket price band, the pocket price by market variable, and the price waterfall
• How to use data to craft a story tailored to your audience
• How to deal with common roadblocks, such as a lack of unified pricing language or addressing an audience made of quantitative and non-quantitative stakeholders
