March 7, 2017 at 11:30 am EST
The challenge to differentiating your pricing strategy is large, but the financial rewards can be huge. The challenge to differentiating price in a commodity-driven industry can be even greater. If it were easy, your competitors would already be doing it! This is your opportunity to learn how companies in commodity driven industries can balance rapidly changing product costs with customer market conditions through differentiated pricing strategy.
On Tuesday, March 7th at 11:30 am EST, Accenture’s Joe Nilsestuen, Senior Manager, Accenture Strategy and Vistaar Technologies will host a webinar focused on “Differentiated Pricing Strategy for Commodity-Driven Businesses.” It will examine how commodity-driven businesses can combat pricing risks, capitalize on market opportunities, and improve internal pricing efficiency. The webinar will touch on topics such as:
- Why start a new pricing initiative?
- How to monetize product points of differentiation with pricing?
- What are the unique pricing challenges in a commodity-driven industry?
- Why is change management important for project success?
- How to operationalize the new pricing strategy?
