Description

Product type:  
CPD online course
Category:  
Finance, management reporting and analysis

In many cases price structuring does not involve accountants – but it should! As an accountant you have a unique insight into the trends and impacts of pricing and have the ability to predict the financial future. Rather than being left to report costs and margins that are a result of pricing, you should be at the heart of the pricing decision.

This course looks specifically at pricing using customer value as the foundation for profit maximisation. It examines the dangers of cost-plus pricing and looks at the building blocks required for a coherent and sustainable pricing policy. Using a structured approach you will analyse the customer value in a product or service, compare it to the competition, and use that analysis to identify opportunities to improve customer value and set your target price.
