How to Move Beyond the Antiquated Concept of the Command-and-Control Pricing Organization

  • The overall concept behind a Center of Excellence and why it makes sense in today's business environment.
  • Eight critical differences between a Command-and-Control structure and a Pricing Center of Excellence.
  • Four basic steps you can follow to begin building a Pricing Center of Excellence in your own organization.
