About this presentation

Increased prices for commodities and transportation, costs incurred due to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis, arrears of price increases not implemented in 2020/21. All these factors are driving up inflation rates. However, most companies are not prepared for the economic impact. Dr Peter Colman, Partner and shareholder at strategy and marketing consultants, Simon-Kucher & Partners, explains how companies can manage and pass on cost increases by developing robust price rise processes.
