I feel very proud of working with our clients to deliver more than expected. A good example is a recent client engaged us to deliver 275 basis points of pricing improvement, not only did we deliver nearly 2 times the improvement, along the way we changed the culture on how pricing was viewed by the organization from the “pricing police” to “optimizing” the return on the value of the products and services they provide. Additionally, the entire organization became much smarter about the right price for each product, region and market segment. They can now build on their knowledge long after our engagement is over.
