Strategic cost and price management is the process of relating meaningful information to a firm’s business strategy using value chain analysis, strategic positioning analysis and cost driver analysis. A range of tools and techniques can be used, including complexity reduction, greater standardization, tighter management of specifications and demand, compliance management, price benchmarking, should-cost analysis, and total cost of ownership analysis. You will learn strategies to improve profits through shaping both the bottom line and top line of your organization. You will have 60 days access after the last day of the course.
