PHASE 4: BUSINESS OBJECTIVES AND STRATEGIES

Match the business objectives of your growth strategy to your pricing strategy.

 

Aligning your pricing strategy to the growth strategy will enable you to accomplish growth objectives. A pricing strategy in conflict with a growth strategy does not work. Seemingly complementary business objectives can be contradictory when it comes to pricing. To succeed, you must understand the relationships, make trade-offs and prioritize the business value that your pricing strategy will facilitate in both the short and long terms.
