Let’s Make a Deal

Yesterday I attended a workshop on global pricing strategies, presented by Charlie Barnhart of Technology Forecasters. About 20 others attended, maybe two-thirds were OEMs and the rest from EMS companies.

You can read more about Charlie’s models and tips in our PCB UPdate newsletter this week (the new issue will come out late Friday night).

4 p.m. UPDATE: I just read TFI’s latest newsletter and what do you know, Charlie talks about his methodologies. You can read it firsthand here.
