The Strategy and Tactics of Pricing, Sixth Edition
Drive organic growth profitability through strategic revenue management
Rather than calculating prices to cover costs or achieve sales goals, learn to make strategic pricing decisions that proactively manage customer perceptions of value, motivate purchasing decisions, and shift demand curves.
About the book
For almost three decades, The Strategy and Tactics of Pricing has served as the leading authority on strategic pricing. The sixth edition brings new perspectives, case studies, and updated approaches from this ever-evolving practice.
Co-authors Thomas Nagle and Georg Müller are two of Deloitte's thought leaders on the topic of pricing and revenue management, leveraging decades of experience in advising high-profile businesses on how to drive organic growth profitably through strategic revenue management. In the latest edition, they reiterate the need for seamless integration of strategic know-how, technology, and organizational design within a pricing strategy.
By drawing upon their expertise and the knowledge across several of Deloitte's practices, the authors have redefined the standard of how to achieve pricing success through the following:
- Strategy: Delivering profitable growth via offer design, better value communications, and revenue model design
- Technology: Building the tools needed to inform good pricing decisions
- Organization: Designing the capabilities to operationalize the go-to-market strategy
The principles of business profitability stressed in the Strategy and Tactics of Pricing make it an absolute must read for all business professionals who care about creating value and profitability for their organization. I have personally practiced the knowledge gained from The Strategy and Tactics of Pricing, operating in hyper-competitive business environments, with great success.
