About the course

Businesses face the challenge of selling the “right product” to the “right customer” at the “right time” for the “right price”. Revenue management (RM) is the application of disciplined analytics that predict consumer behaviour at the micro-market levels and optimize product availability and price to maximize revenue.

The conventional wisdom was to create and sell a single product to all customers at an optimal price. With RM, instead of mass market, the focus is on micro-market, i.e. understanding different customer segments and their price sensitivity. This ensures that the products, prices, and sales channel are aligned with each customer segment.


This programme helps participants to develop a holistic view of products, customer segments, channels and prices by analysing customer segments and each segment’s perceived value of the products. The programme has following objectives:

  • Explore key RM concepts
  • Examine the levers available to increase revenue

  • Traditional Approaches to Pricing vis-a-vis RM strategy
