If your role in sales, marketing or product management involves setting or accepting prices, you'll want to be certain that your mind is open to consideration of alternative approaches for deciding what's best. To set pricing you'll want to increase the perceived value of the product's benefits to the customer. To accept deviations from list pricing you'll want to really know and understand the incremental costs within your specific organization.
The course is designed to help you think about the alternatives you have in setting prices. It is intended to help you determine what makes an "optimum" price, and if one exists for your particular circumstances. The course is also intended to give you insight into the differences between the "standard cost" often referred to in industry and the real costs of doing incremental business. To successfully manage a business, you must understand where your costs actually come from.
The course includes an exercise involving a real-world set of decisions about accepting orders at well below list price. It works through real considerations ranging from the real capacity of your organization to the impact of your decision on the share price of your stock. It is intended to stretch your thinking horizons and yet give you techniques you might apply during your next workday.
You will receive a completely pre-formulated Microsoft Excel ™ Pricing and Costing Template for your own use. During the workshop you will use it in the exercises. After the workshop it will be your template to use in your own calculations. Just add your own data and the analysis will take place for you automatically.
