In-House Corporate Workshops
Pricing is a team sport, requiring the attention of all within an organization working together to meet the company’s goals and objectives. SPMG specializes in customized price training and education to help all become more effective “pricers”. Our training is designed to address specific pricing issues and meet individual client needs.
Over the past two decades, SPMG has trained more than 12,000 executives and have conducted in-house training for more than 200 different organizations.
Ratings for our training sessions have consistently been outstanding and we have been brought back by many clients on several occasions for additional training and or consulting work.
In addition to training, SPMG has conducted numerous seminars and conferences on Pricing Strategy, Price Management, and Revenue Optimization. Some of the issues addressed include contracting/bidding processes, new product pricing, pricing process architectures, pricing performance reviews, compensation, price maturity assessments, value analysis, and GPO strategy.
Many of the partners of SPMG have published articles in leading magazines and journals including Marketing Magazine, Professional Market Research Society, Professional Pricing Society and have even published books e.g. The Joy of Pricing.
At SPMG, we believe that if people are engaged and having fun they will learn more. To ensure we create that type of environment, we approach training from the following expertise.
Activity-based / experiential – We quickly move from theory into the application through the use of team breakouts and individual exercises,
Application to problems faced by participants – We design the exercises and breakouts to provide participants with the fullest opportunity possible to work on their own business issues in real time. This way they leave the session with work completed and a clear sense of what needs to be done when they return to their desk.
Leverage the group’s wisdom – Participants are encouraged to contribute throughout the session. As well, at the end of each exercise, there is debriefing and testing for understanding. This provides an important opportunity for participants to share.
Industry Focused – We will be using industry-specific cases and providing industry-specific examples that extend the learning of the team and can easily be related to their own situation.
