The Management Pricing Cycle for Mature Businesses

In this article, the author presents a scenario of an all too common lifecycle that plays out consistently in pricing management groups in mature companies: new pricing managers are hired for growth, they immediately lower prices while ignoring other key indicators, and when this doesn’t work they scramble for other solutions or leave before creating a black mark on their resume. This article describes how to break this cycle and provides strategies for new pricing managers to help improve their chances of success.
