When to Choose Profit, Revenue, or Both
Veteran Pricing Professional Lydia DiLiello on How to Balance Profitability and Revenue Objectives
As pricing people in B2B, we all have to deal with the "corporate schizophrenia" around revenue versus profit. Sometimes, it's all about growing bottom-line profits. Other times, everyone is focused on growing top-line revenues. And sometimes, the flip-flop can happen so quickly that it'll give you whiplash! In this conversation with Lydia DiLiello, a successful B2B pricing practitioner and consultant with decades of experience, we discuss how pricing teams can best deal with this oftentimes frustrating dynamic.
