Communicating value



Pricing strategies can trigger emotional reactions from customers and the media if you don’t communicate value effectively. How can you establish pricing and communication strategies that affirm the value of your products?

Providing credible evidence



Decision makers require compelling evidence to help justify your offering’s value. How do you avoid research bias and communicate evidence-based value in a way that resonates with key stakeholders? 

Fighting negative perceptions



Developing the right price for a product or service that’s considered essential can be difficult. How do you build a pricing strategy that customers consider fair but that provides a reasonable return on investment?

Meeting stakeholder needs



In life sciences, the “dinner for three” purchase process, in which buyer, payer and consumer are distinct, complicates pricing even further. How can you understand and address the value drivers of each stakeholder?
