, Joanna Sinclair
Strategic Pricing is an executive program that considers pricing from a strategic management perspective. The program introduces alternative strategies that provide insights for improving pricing decisions that directly impact a company’s financial performance.
Participants leave the program with a comprehensive understanding of the key parameters and crucial factors for setting value-based pricing, and with a set of implementable tools and frameworks that can be used to improve the company’s pricing strategy.
