Pricing challenges and decisions arise at every stage of the offering innovation lifecycle, from ideation, to go-to-market, maturity, and de-marketing. But the tools and techniques use for early stage product management decisions are very different from those used in latter stages. In this session, Tim J. Smith, PhD will share how leading firms are integrating different pricing and price management techniques throughout the innovation lifecycle to maximize the success rate of new offerings and maximize the profit earnings on existing offerings.

Attendees will learn:

-What information is required to address pricing throughout the Innovation Lifecycle

-Which Pricing Techniques best align with specific Product Phase Gates.

-How Pricing at Maturity differs from Pricing at Launch

-How to evaluate and select the best sales channel strategy

Other Topics:

• Do’s and don’ts for product managers: Lessons learned the hard way

• Creating a robust sales and marketing strategy

• What is the practical meaning of operational excellence?

• Sales channels - development and management

• Cost effective Product Portfolio Strategies-private labeling
