    Profit Principles

    Here are the principles that guide the development of sustainably profitable software-enabled solutions.

    • Profit Fuels Sustainability

      Sustainability

      Just as mother nature relies on the energy from the sun to sustain life on earth, every business relies on profit for sustainability. Profit creates a virtuous cycle between a business and the customer it serves. A profitable business can invest in the ongoing development of its solutions.

    • Pricing is a System

      Systems Thinking

      Designing a sustainable Software-Enabled Solution involves making a system of interdependent choices. By organizing the elements of our system as a canvas, we create a highly compact representation that promotes holistic innovation, collective wisdom, and collaboration.

      Keep the profit flowing

      The best-performing companies not only deliver a continuous stream of value, they create a continuous steam of profit by evolving their pricing and packaging to maximize profit throughout the solution lifecycle.

    It's the whole solution that matters.

    Marc Andreesen famously stated, "Software is eating the world.". And while that may be true, the success of a software-enabled solution is more than just the software itself. It requires a systems-thinking approach to design that focuses on your customer's success.

    Our 'Whole Solution' approach to Solution Profitability Management integrates sustainable pricing, compelling packaging, effective licensing - and more! - to ensure that you're delivering the whole solution your customers need.

    Holistic Pricing

    "I was impressed with the comprehensive and holistic approach the Growth Pricing Workshop took. It covers an immense amount of complex material, delivered in a way that flows effortlessly between strategy and workshops, reinforcing each concept in the company’s own terms. We advise all of our portfolio companies to attend a Growth Pricing workshop."

    David McFarlaneOperating Partner, Companyon Ventures

    Workshops that work for entrepreneurs

    "I hired Applied Frameworks to help us in our next iteration of our pricing. In addition to the business value, I really enjoyed working together - a perfect balance of expertise-based thinking/healthy challenging of assumptions with humility and understanding me as a person and an entrepreneur."

    Andrew PhelpsFounder and CEO, Incentive Pilot
