    Session 3 | Cost-Plus Pricing: Stop Leaving Money on the Table

    Intuitively, using cost-plus to set pricing would allow organizations to keep pace with inflation and ensure long-term financial viability. Yet, more than half of B2B organizations failed to keep pace with inflation in this past year. In this webinar, Avy Punwasee of Revenue Management Labs and Kyle Uebelhor of Alexander Group will outline how using value-based pricing in place of cost-plus is essential to commercial success.

    Key Takeaways:
    – Cost-based pricing versus value-based pricing
    – Unlocking customer value and willingness to pay
    – Understand the competitive landscape and how that will impact pricing decisions
    – Determining the true financial value of your offering
    – Change management considerations when migrating to a value-based approach
