You cannot improve what you cannot measure and nowhere is need for good analyses more acute and more critical to the bottom line, than in pricing.  However, effective pricing analysis is more difficult than traditional financial or sales analysis.  Corporate processes and data infrastructure, built to support these traditional analysis requirements, fail to realize the full potential of pricing analysis.  This workshop presents best practices in pricing analysis and decision support, from theory to practical implementation, and includes hands-on exercises. 

The online pricing course will teach you:

  • Actionable data collection, synthesis, and validation techniques 
  • Knowledge of the key difference between the theory and practice of pricing analysis 
  • Common areas of pricing opportunity, and the pitfalls many businesses succumb to in attempting to capture them.

  • How to create a virtuous cycle for pricing analysis, where successive efforts make future efforts easier and more powerful
