We conclude by our own model for pricing capability, which we will use in our analysis. Empirical foundation: In this chapter the case study is presented. We also present some comments on pricing capability. Conclusions: When acquiring a pricing capability it is important to realize the importance of pricing and to have the courage to change price processes. It is also important to organize the pricing process in a structured way. Three practical implications are: courage to change prices, a group that sets prices and a system that manages the everyday price setting. (Less)
