Workshop (Tuesday, October 10th)

Pricing and Corporate Organizational Engagement

Every successful pricing executive realizes pricing cannot be a silo function. Pricing’s success is dependent upon the ability to help peers in other departments succeed. In this advanced course, we will look at pricing and the rest of the organization. Three case studies and a simulation will be used to demonstrate concepts, and a pre-read will be provided. This course is designed for professionals that have completed their CPP and are working in senior management roles but is approachable for pricers at all levels.

Attendees will learn:

  • Pricing’s role in driving sales, marketing, and financial success across economic cycles
  • Pricing’s required engagement in new product/service development, customer margin analysis, and major account management
  • How accurate analytics alone predictably fails to improve price and corporate performance
