Value-in-Use Pricing: An Applied Project-Based Workshop & Coaching
This course will be held regardless of COVID-19 events. It will be delivered remotely over several days.
Many businesses struggle to price, or set their price premium, on new innovative products, unique existing products and/or value-added non-product features (e.g., services, reliability). They are further hindered by the inability to validate their price in the market. The best practice for pricing setting in the B2B world, is value-in-use pricing. This course takes a practical, effective approach towards teaching and facilitating participants in applying the concepts to their own product. It provides a ‘take home’ practical excel based tool to support their value pricing. The course also incorporates break-out session exercises where participants work on their own project. Further, the course is broken into separated sessions across 2 weeks, to allow participants to work off-line. Two private 30-minute coaching sessions are provided to each team.
- A small cross-functional team of 3 – 5 members (e.g., marketing, sales, technical, pricing)
- Teams must bring a project (e.g., a new or existing product/service to develop their value price)
“Live” virtual workshop spread across 2 days with break-out exercises for project team application work. The course covers four modules of ~1 hour each. 2 modules with a 20-minute break in between will be delivered on each of the 2 days. Private 30-minute coaching sessions will be provided per team: once after module 2 and again after module 4. Team off-line work is expected.
