Business Case Development Framework (Course)

This is a 32-slide PowerPoint presentation with an accompanying Excel business case model. The Business Case is an instrumental tool in both justifying a project (requiring a capital budgeting decision), as well as measuring the project's success. The Business Case model typically takes the form of an Excel spreadsheet and quantifies the financial components of the project, projecting key metrics for making any important business decision: e.g. Net Present Value (NPV), Return on Investment (ROI), Payback Period, Cost of Investment. If a project has been justified by the Business Case (both financially and non-financially) and receives the go-ahead from executives, the Business Case model is then continuously maintained and adjusted to track the project's progress against the initial financial projections and assumptions. This model then becomes a working document used during the project management process. This toolkit will detail the process of creating a robust Business Case. It also includes a working sample Business Case model (in Microsoft Excel).

Value-based Pricing Strategy (Course)

This is a 47-slide PowerPoint. There are 3 common approaches to pricing: Cost-based Pricing, Competitive Pricing, and Value-based Pricing. This presentation discusses A.T. Kearney's approach to Value-based Pricing. Value-based Pricing offers numerous distinct advantages over the other 2 pricing methodologies. It is particularly suitable for situations where you are entering a new market, offering a new or distinct product, or where customers do not yet fully understand the impact and benefits of your product. Value-based pricing allows companies to build a deeper understanding of their customers' business drivers, align their goals with the customers' goals, and, ultimately, share in each others' attained value in a way that isn't possible with traditional pricing approaches. Value-based Pricing requires a significant change in the way most organizations go-to-market. It requires rethinking everything from customer segmentation to product marketing to sales and account management in order to support a new and unique market positioning. Core business processes must be realigned and new business process established. These new processes have deeper analytical capabilities embedded through the organization, especially in Sales. Topics covered include a comparison of common pricing strategies, principles to value-based pricing, value-based pricing strategy approach, Pricing Staircase framework, Value Ceiling, customer segmentation, pricing structure, Benefits Matrix.
