NEW! Present the latest information¿Heavily Revised Chapters.
The revised chapter on Pricing Policy provides a theoretically-grounded framework to describe specific policies for managing price changes for situations such as:
-Cost-based price increases
-Price reductions in a recession
-Discounts

The chapter on Value Creation now addresses the difference between how to consider value when it is driven by tangible monetary drivers (saving money on gas) versus the more subjective psychological drivers (doing the right thing for the environment).


The chapter on Value and Price Communication has been substantially revised to describe how to communicate value in a wide variety of product and customer contexts. This chapter also demonstrates how to target communications to affect specific behaviors throughout the customer¿s buying process.
The chapter on Price Setting has been expanded to provide a robust process for setting prices that can be widely applied to consumer and business markets.
