You’ve taken one or more SAFe classes, and now it is your turn to teach. Most SPCs will need to educate people and train various certified SAFe classes. Join us for the next episode in the “SPC Journey” series as we discuss how an SPC can excel in the classroom so that they can enable participants with the knowledge and understanding necessary to achieve greater business agility.
Profit is the net income resulting from revenue minus expenses. Profit is essential because, without profit, a business is unsustainable. The problem is that while there is lots of guidance on how to price regular goods and services, there is little guidance on how to design profitable software-enabled solutions - until now.
Creating a pricing structure provides a consistent and planned approach to pricing your software-enabled solution that helps to achieve your organizational goals.
Do you understand your value exchange model? The economic value of a software-enabled solution is the benefits a customer receives less their costs. How a customer exchanges money for this value represents a critical design decision for product leaders with substantial, long-term implications for their underlying technical and business architectures as well as the sustainability of their solution. Design choices made by business leaders about value exchange directly influence the profitability of the software-enabled solution’s business model.
I have years of fond memories of Thanksgiving Dinner. As a child growing up outside of Buffalo, NY, we’d play downstairs while the parents prepared the meal upstairs. Then, when the time came, we helped set the table, schlepping food up and down the stairs. Finally, following some words of thanks, the entire family would eat, and then the adults would return upstairs, doing… well, adult stuff. But, of course, that adult stuff wasn’t our concern because we kids went back to goofing around, often outside if it wasn’t too cold.

There is no silver bullet for measuring Agile performance. If you only count one metric, it is easy to get tunnel vision. Be it the team focusing on just making the metric better (often through gaming the system) or management using the single metric to drive all decisions, you can end up with a product or organization that looks good while it is really driving off a cliff.
Pricing your software solution is hard. Constructing pricing models that appeal to customers and maximize profit is a challenge for Product Leaders. So where do you start?
Webinar: Applied Frameworks Joel Bancroft-Connors (CST) is joined by Bob Galen (CEC) for an in-depth discussion about the Agile Coach Growth Wheel and what it means to measure yourself as an agile coach.
As an SPC, you might see yourself as a trainer, a coach, a mentor, or a facilitator. However, the “C” in “SPC” stands for “Consultant.” Join SPCT Phil Gardiner and SPC Michael Robertson for the next episode in the “SPC Journey” series as we discuss consulting skills and how they benefit an enterprise or agency seeking to achieve greater business agility.
