Pricing Optimization: Striking the Right Balance for Margin Advantage
Learn best practices in pricing optimization with a brand-new book currently being offered by the NAW Institute and Texas A&M, "Pricing Optimization: Striking the Right Balance for Margin Advantage." For many distributors, pricing decisions are completely left to individual salespeople to do in their own way. Allowing this kind of flexibility is a distributor's weakness. Pricing is already quite complex, and inconsistency will only increase complexity and will lead to chaos. Here lies the crux of problem. The solution to this dilemma lies in "complexity management" — providing structure with fewer variables, and "consistency"— doing things the same way every time. This comprehensive study will help you achieve the right pricing solution for your business!

Harvesting winning ideas
In most cultures it's common to compare the growth of new ideas to the planting and harvesting of crops. The implicit order organizes the essential actions: Prepping, planting, fertilizing, tending, harvesting and prepping again. The seasons are cyclical and absolute. All attempts to recast the sequence of events lead to failure and hunger. So why not take them into account each season before planting?
