Below is a "Sample" Title, Abstract and Objectives:
Managing the Managers: Executive Communications for Getting Price
The pricing analysis is now complete, the waterfalls are developed, and the opportunities identified -- now what? Getting executive buy-in can be one of the largest internal hurdles Pricing Managers must overcome. Pricing Managers are often caught in the middle, fighting not only customers but internal bureaucracy and culture to get the message out, and the dollars in. Learn through real-world examples how to frame your findings in a way that is compelling to executives.
Attendees will learn:
• the power of getting executive buy-in; • how to turn skeptics into advocates; and • how to internally communicate the benefits of pricing.
